Texans' Brian Cushing: Out six weeks with torn MCL
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cushing tore his MCL in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Bears and is expected to miss six weeks, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Cushing just can't seem to stay healthy, as the torn MCL is an addition to an already extensive list of injuries the eighth-year linebacker has suffered throughout his career. The good news is that the tear will not require surgery, but with no Cushing for the next six weeks, the Texans will need unproven Max Bullough, who recorded only 30 combined tackles in 2015, to assume the starting middle linebacker position.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cushing suffered a knee injury in Week 1's matchup with the Bears and is questionable to return.

Cushing suffered the knee injury midway through the first quarter, but the specifics are still unknown. The linebacker has had a history of injuries, which could lead the Texans to sideline Cushing the remainder of the game. In the meantime, look for Max Bullough to see extended reps.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (rest) returned to practice Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Cushing did not play in Houston's preseason opener against San Francisco, nor did he participate in the joint practice sessions leading up to Sunday's game, but that was due to his veteran status. "Yeah, it was just a couple days just to rest," Cushing said. "I'm kind of getting up there in years and experience. Any kind of break benefits me at this point in my career." Cushing is coming off a season in which he played every game and led Houston's defense with 110 tackles.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Won't play in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (rest) will not play in Houston's preseason opener versus San Francisco, NFL.com's James Palmer reports.

Cushing is simply receiving a veteran's day off, as he isn't injured and is listed as a healthy scratch. This shouldn't affect his level of participation in practice going forward, though, but he is questionable for Houston's next preseason game versus the Saints on Saturday as the team may continue to rest their oft-injured defensive playmaker.

Texans' Brian Cushing: Nine tackles and pick in playoff loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Cushing recorded 13 tackles (nine solo) with an interception in Saturday's playoff loss to the Chiefs.

After a couple of injury plagued seasons, Cushing has played 30 games the last two seasons, including all 16 in 2015. Cushing proved he's not done as an elite inside linebacker.
