Texans' Brian Cushing: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cushing recently had "clean-up" surgery on his shoulder, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cushing dealt with knee, back, ankle, and shoulder injuries throughout the 2016 campaign but didn't miss any time due to his shoulder ailment. His other injuries aren't expected to require surgery, and he isn't expected to be held out of any offseason practices.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Limited in practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (ankle) was limited in practice Wednesday.

Cushing played through the injury in Saturday's wild-card win over the Raiders, recording four tackles in the contest. Barring any major setbacks, it seems unlikely the linebacker would miss Saturday's tilt with New England, but look for more official updates to come throughout the practice week.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Practices in full Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (ankle) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Cushing was forced to sit out of last week's regular season finale due to his ankle troubles, but it seems like he'll be ready for Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Raiders. With both Cushing and teammate Jadeveon Clowney looking like they'll play Sunday, the Texans should be getting a nice boost defensively.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Inactive Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's regular season finale against Tennessee.

Cushing was limited in practice throughout the week, and with Houston having nothing to gain in Week 17 he is likely just being rested for the playoffs. Look for Max Bullough to get the start in Cushing's place.
