Texans sign free agent LB Joe Mays
The Texans confirmed the signing on Tuesday.
Mays knocked Schaub's helmet off and the star QB lost a chunk of his left ear on the play during Houston's 31-25 victory over the Denver Broncos on Sept. 23. Mays was fined $50,000 and suspended for one game.
The Houston Chronicle and KRIV-TV of Houston were the first to report the signing. Mays told the television station that he and Schaub talked Monday and made peace. Schaub told the station the hit was ''water under the bridge.''
