HOUSTON -

Fans are saying enough is enough when it comes to the jabs against Houston Texans QB Matt Schaub. So is a Houston grocery store, apologizing for what it calls a "derogatory sign" posted in one of their stores.

A viewer emailed us a photo of a tombstone, reading "R.I.P. Matt Schaub's arm." The viewer was doubly upset because this appeared in a grocery store not far from the neighborhood where the Schaub family lives.

Kroger removed the sign.

In a statement sent to Local 2, the company said, "Kroger would like to express tremendous regret over the derogatory Matt Schaub sign that was displayed at one of our store locations. It was created without the direction and approval from our marketing department. The sign has been removed. Kroger has been a proud sponsor of the Houston Texans for several years--in fact, this past weekend, we supported the Texans' Pink Ribbon Day game, which promotes breast cancer awareness, a cause which Kroger is deeply committed to, and we're excited to root on the team for the remainder of the season."
