Matt Schaub, who had thrown a pick-six in four consecutive games, went down with a leg injury in Sunday's 38-13 loss to the St. Louis Rams.

When he was injured, a portion of the Houston Texans faithful at Reliant Stadium cheered, much to the chagrin of Texans' players. Receiver Andre Johnson had some of the strongest words in support of Schaub and against the fans who cheered his injury.

“It’s bad when members of the other team are saying that’s messed up that (fans) would do something like that,” Johnson said via the Houston Chronicle. “It just shows no class. It wasn’t all the fans. But those are the same people that you’re out somewhere with your family and you tell them they can’t have an autograph right now, those are the same people that tell you you’re rude.

“It shows what they’re all about. You don’t cheer about nobody being injured – I don’t care who it is.”

Schaub was replaced by T.J. Yates, who came in and threw a pick-six, giving the Texans five consecutive games with a pick-six against them.
