Matt Schaub taking one in the line of duty went relatively unnoticed this weekend, but his toughness really deserves mention. During Sunday’s showdown between the Houston Texans and Denver Broncos, Joe Mays delivered one of the more brutal illegal hits we’ve seen as of late – which in turn cost Schaub the bottom portion of his ear.
Sans a piece of his ear, Schaub returned to the game one play later. (He's pretty hardcore.)
Check it out:
The Texans wound up winning this game 31-25, presumably because of karmic justice.
