The injury Texans linebacker Brian Cushing suffered on Monday night may have ended his season.

A source told PFT’s Mike Florio that the Texans’ medical staff fears Cushing suffered a torn ACL in Monday night’s win over the Jets. An MRI to reveal the severity of the injury will be conducted today.
Cushing suffered the injury when Jets offensive lineman Matt Slauson hit him in the back of the knee, and he looked like he was in a lot of pain as he writhed on the ground. He was eventually able to limp to the locker room without assistance.

The team’s first-round draft pick in 2009, Cushing has been one of the team’s best defensive players. He served a four-game suspension in 2010 but has never missed a game because of injury.

Not good for Hou.
Looked like Dobbins had replaced him but I'm not sure there is much FF value there.  Bradie James?

Is Sharpton on IR?

Bradie James will probably end up a 3 down player even though he really shouldn't be.

Sharpton is on PUP I believe. Dobbins likely stays a 2 down LB until Sharpton proves his health.

No skin in the game here, but Slauson should have a bunch of people go at his knees for the cheap shot he gave Cushing.

The reason why there is no grip from HOU is bc their OL is famous for those types of blocks WHICH ARE LEGAL! The fine by Goddell is unbelievabley tirantial and this os getting outa hand (like my made up word?)
