Cushing’s ACL surgery goes “very well”

Brian Cushing AP

Earlier this month, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing suffered a torn ACL when he absorbed a dirty (but in our view not illegal) hit from Jets guard Matt Slauson.  According to Tania Ganguli of the Houston Chronicle, Cushing has now had surgery to repair the fairly important knee ligament.

The procedure reportedly went “very well.”  (Extending the streak of professional athlete surgeries not resulting in an acknowledgement that the player got butchered.)

Surgery was delayed by swelling in the knee.  Cushing will now embark on a course of rehab that, if all goes well, could see him back at 100 percent in time for training camp 2013.

    Cushing looks like he could be related to Brady Quinn. Like maybe an ancestor from three and a half million years ago.

    Cush will take over from the Geico guy while he recuperates.

    More like HGH. Not sure how well roids would help here, but some HGHG would heal that knee up nicely! And why we don’t let professional athletes use HGH for that reason… I still don’t understand.
