At the end of Sunday’s game, Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson got into a heated debate that ended once Johnson walked away from the quarterback and off the field in the waning moments. Johnson said the two quickly moved past the spat and their relationship is back to normal; they have been talking and joking with each other this week.
Johnson was asked about Schaub’s going from a starter to where he is now, a bench player who might not be with the team next season.
“I don’t think anybody saw this coming,” Johnson said. “But at the same time, it’s the nature of the business. Guys come, guys go. You hate to see it happen because me and him have played a lot of football together. I’ve caught a lot of passes from him. It’s something you hate to see but who knows?
"You never know what can happen. You hate to see what he went through as a player. I’m pretty sure it’s been very stressful for him. But at the same time, he still comes in here and prepares to go out and play. When his number’s called on, he’ll be ready to go. And that’s big of him because some guys would just throw in the towel. But he hasn’t done that."
