The Falcons have signed Schaub, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran QB will thus reunite with Kyle Shanahan, who he worked with while both were with Houston, with Schaub now slated to serve as Matt Ryan's backup in 2016.

Schaub said he does not plan to retire, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 34-year-old Schaub only had a one-year contract with the Ravens and probably didn't do enough to earn another look. He should still get an opportunity with another organization, but he'll be a long shot to make a final roster, which could eventually lead to his retirement.

Schaub (chest) is not listed on the Ravens' Week 16 injury report.

EDGE Analysis

That said, the Ravens' official site relays that coach John Harbaugh isn't inclined to tip his hand with regard to the team's starter at QB for Sunday's game against the Steelers. On that front, the 4-10 Ravens' options are Schaub, Jimmy Clausen -- who has started the team's last two games -- and Ryan Mallett, a newcomer who could get an on-field audition before the close of the season.

Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun relays that Jimmy Clausen worked with the Ravens' starters in warmups Sunday, while Schaub (chest) worked with the backups, so it looks like Clausen is in line for his second straight start.

EDGE Analysis

Though the Ravens haven't made such an assignment official, the signs point to Clausen getting the starting nod against the red-hot Chiefs on Sunday.

Schaub (chest) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, it's still unclear whether Schaub or Jimmy Clausen will start the contest, though the report notes that "if their workload in pregame warmups are any indication, Clausen getting the bulk of the throws means he'll likely start for a second straight week." That nugget, along with a tough matchup, should be enough to discourage fantasy owners from rolling with Schaub this week.

Schaub (chest) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Schaub is set to return as the starting quarterback, after Jimmy Clausen predictably struggled in a Week 14 loss to the Seahawks. Even with the Kansas City defense nursing some issues of its own, the injury-depleted Baltimore offense will likely be far overmatched in Sunday's game. The Ravens haven't officially announced a starter, but it would be a major surprise if Clausen got the nod.

Schaub (chest) was a full practice participant Thursday after being limited Wednesday, the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, offensive coordinator Marc Trestman suggested Thursday that

despite the QB's practice participation Thursday, the team is still evaluating Schaub -- who gave way to Jimmy Clausen in Week 14 -- in advance of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. "We'll see where we are tomorrow," Trestman said of Schaub on Thursday "He's still a little bit sore and he did get work, and he threw the ball effectively. He'll just have to see."

Schaub (chest) was able to practice again Thursday, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

That said, the report suggested that the QB didn't look especially comfortable out there, with offensive Coordinator Marc Trestman acknowledging Thursday that Schaub is still sore and that it's too early for the Ravens to make decision between him and Jimmy Clausen for Sunday's start at QB against the Chiefs.

Schaub (chest) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

Schaub's status for Sunday's game against the Chiefs has yet to be confirmed, though earlier in the week the veteran QB indicated that he believed he could play this week. On hand in the event that he can't are Week 14 starter Jimmy Clausen and newcomer Ryan Mallett.

Coach John Harbaugh noted Monday that Schaub (chest) feels like he can play Sunday against the Chiefs, Jeff Zrebiec of the Baltimore Sun reports.

EDGE Analysis

For his part, Harbaugh noted, "We'll have to see how it goes," while adding that Schaub will play in Week 15 "if he's close to 100 percent." Meanwhile, the Ravens worked out QB Ryan Mallett and could add him to the mix in advance of Sunday's contest.
