- Pro Football Talk reports that Cushing is “week-to-week” with MCL sprain.
Texans LB Brian Cushing was taken to the field during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Bears with what appeared to be a knee injury.
Cushing was replaced at inside linebacker by Max Bullough.
It’s worth mentioning that Cushing has previously sustained a serious knee injury, so this is fairly concerning for him and the Texans’ defense.
Cushing, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Texans back in 2009. He’s currently in the fourth year of his ix-year, $55.643 million contract that included $21 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $5 million for the 2016 season.
In 2015, Cushing appeared in all 16 games for the Texans and recorded 110 tackles, no sacks, a forced fumble and three pass defenses.
We’ll have more regarding Cushing and his injury as the news is available.
