Matt Schaub says he'll play vs. Ravens

HOUSTON -- Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub missed practice Wednesday, but says he'll be ready to go by Sunday.

Schaub sat out because of a sore throwing shoulder.

Dealing with injuries to key players is nothing new to the Texans.

Andre Johnson is expected to sit out Sunday when the Texans (3-2) play the Ravens (3-1) after hurting his right hamstring in the Texans' 17-10 win over Pittsburgh in Week 4. Mario Williams, the Texans' career sacks leader, is out for the season after tearing a pectoral muscle Sunday in a 25-20 loss to Oakland.

The Texans acquired veteran Derrick Mason from the New York Jets to boost the receiving corps without Johnson.
