Texans' Brian Cushing: Held out of practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing did not participate in practice Tuesday due to an undisclosed injury, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

There's a fair level of obscurity regarding Cushing's injury, but without any further word we're left assuming he'll be back relatively soon. Cushing has played through plenty of injuries before, so his absence is likely the result of a precautionary measure more than anything else at the moment.

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

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.

Cushing played through his ankle injury in Saturday's win over Oakland and isn't expected to miss any time in the divisional round despite being limited in Wednesday's practice.

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.
