Matt Leinart's Houston Texans career is over, as the quarterback is expected to be officially released on Tuesday, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.
Leinart's two-year career with the Texans, after being released by Arizona at the end of preseason in 2010, consisted of just two games - one relief appearance for an injured Matt Schaub and a start the following week in which Leinart himself was lost for the season.
The move leaves the Texans with Schaub and T.J. Yates as the only quarterbacks on the Houston roster.
Leinart's free fall from a guy who probably would have been the first overall pick in 2005 had he come out rather than staying at Southern California for his senior season. Leinart was then the 10th overall pick by the Arizona Cardinals and ultimately lost his job to Kurt Warner there.
