"Matt has a fracture, which is what was believed and it's been confirmed, will have to have surgery," Kubiak said in remarks distributed by the team. "It's my understanding we're going to try to do it sometime quickly here in the next week. I visited with him today at length, very disappointed, obviously, with his opportunity he had and what happened. So, we move forward from there."
The Texans are expected to start rookie T.J. Yates this week with Kellen Clemens backing him up.
They're also going to bring in another quarterback.
That's not expected to be Brett Favre, though. Kubiak didn't rule it out, but it's totally unlikely.
The Texans signed Clemens last week after working him out along with Jeff Garcia, Brodie Croyle and Chase Clement.
Garcia and Jake Delhomme are scheduled to work out for the Texans on Tuesday.
"I don't always watch every workout, but I did watch the quarterbacks," Kubiak said. "I have an opinion on those guys. There are some other names that are going to come up here over the course of the next day or so and we'll just have to sort it all out."
Kubiak was complimentary of Yates' work.
"He still had his earpiece in when I was screaming at him to get in there," Kubiak said. "I thought he did a heck of a job. Like I said, we ran the ball. I wanted to get him composed with what I wanted to get done right there and boy, he went in there and did a good job. He dropped that one snap, but he got rid of the ball.
"That's a tough situation, but he kind of knocked off the nerves there before we went in at halftime and then everybody really rallied around him at halftime, letting him know they were there for him. I respect the job he did yesterday."
