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

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."
