Houston Texans running back Arian Foster is pleased that head coach Gary Kubiak has defended quarterback Matt Schaub.

Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has hailed head coach Gary Kubiak for his defence of quarterback Matt Schaub.

Schaub has come under fire in recent weeks for throwing pick-sixes in four consecutive games and breaking an NFL record, but Kubiak has decided to stick with the 32-year-old, keeping him as his starter.

"I think it shows everything about who coach Kub [Gary Kubiak] is," Foster told the Houston Chronicle. "He's a player's coach. He has our back and, when a coach does that, you have to show up for him.

"I've felt that way [because] he's stuck up for me. I feel like I owe him a lot. I owe this organisation a lot because they gave me a chance. That's the kind of organisation we have here."

The Texans face the St Louis Rams in week six of their NFL season.
