UNDATED (AP) _ Andy Reid will be back to work on Thursday.

The Philadelphia Eagles head coach will return from a temporary leave of absence which was granted five weeks ago because of his two oldest sons' legal troubles.

Reid has maintained contact with the Eagles during the start of the free agent signing period and has been available to participate in personnel decisions.

The Atlanta Falcons have agreed to trade quarterback Matt Schaub to the Houston Texans in a deal that also involves a swap of first-round draft picks. The transaction would give the Falcons the eighth overall pick instead of the tenth.

The deal also could mean the end of David Carr in a Texans uniform. Houston has been unhappy with his development since he was taken with the first overall pick in the 2002 NFL draft.

The Texans had tried to sign free agents Jeff Garcia and Patrick Ramsey before working out a deal for Schaub.
