Though Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is out for the season again after tearing his LCL and breaking his leg following a block at the knees by Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, Cushing AGAIN appears to be the definition of class when it comes to the opponent that caused his injury.

Last year after then-Jets guard Matt Slauson undercut him on a play that would have been illegal this season, causing a torn ACL, Cushing said afterward, "I got cut. I got cut on a run play. It happens. I was just keeping my head up. Whatever happens, happens. It's football. It's part of the game."

After Charles' front-side block Sunday, here's what the Chiefs running back had to tweet.

And here was Cushing's response:

For as disappointed as Cushing has to be knowing that he'll miss a large chunk of the season again because he was (legally) blocked at the knees, it's nice to know that he's gone out of his way two years in a row to let his adversary know that there are no hard feelings.
