Brian Cushing working way back into regular role
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing, who lost 20 regular season games to injury over the last two seasons, is receiving increased practice time lately.

Cushing remains uncertain if he will be allowed to play Saturday night against Denver. If not, he will participate in the regular-season opener against Washington, according to the Houston Chronicle.

"For the most part, I've been practicing a good amount," he said. "I'm excited to be back out there. Any game-time situation, obviously, I want to play and play a good amount, but that's not up to me. That's up to the coaches."

Cushing has proven productive when healthy. He has averaged nearly eight tackles a game throughout his career.

Texans place Brian Cushing, others on PUP

The Texans announced Monday that linebacker Brian Cushing, rookie defensive tackle Louis Nix and linebacker Trevardo Williams would begin training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. They are allowed to come off the list at any time between now and the start of the regular season. 

Cushing is coming back from a torn knee ligament and a broken fibula. Head coach Bill O'Brien is unsure when exactly he'll return to practice. Nix has a meniscus injury he's dealing with. Williams was placed on IR before last season with an injury.

Brian Cushing can't put timetable on return to the field
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing didn't practice this spring and hasn't put on pads in a game since Oct. 20. That's when he tore a knee ligament and broke his fibula.

While he vowed to be ready for the season opener, Cushing would not put a timetable on his return to the practice field. "I know when it’s go-time, and I need to ramp it up and get on the field, I’ll be there," he told the team's website.

"I’m still working out every day," he added. "I’m just trying to be the best I can possibly be, come time for the camp. Come time for the season. The training staff’s done an unbelievable job."
