Brian Cushing lands on PUP list


Texans linebacker Brian Cushing knows that he’ll be ready for Week One and now we all know that he won’t be ready for the first training camp practice.

Cushing has been cleared by doctors after rehabbing the knee and leg injuries that ended his 2013 season, but the team isn’t quite ready to let him be a full participant in practice just yet. Cushing has been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list ahead of the start of camp, which means he’s barred from doing more than working out on the side as the team goes through its paces.

Like all players on the list, Cushing counts against the 90-man roster and can be activated at any time. Once he is activated, however, Cushing will lose eligibility for the regular season PUP list.

The Texans also placed linebacker Trevardo Williams and rookie defensive tackle Louis Nix on the PUP list. Williams spent last season on injured reserve with a knee injury and Nix, a third-round pick in May, missed some time this spring with a knee ailment of his own.

    I wonder why his body is breaking down at such a young age?

    Juice him up so he can heal faster.

    Did he cheat? Yes.

    Would all of the people that constantly point this out love him on their team? Absolutely.

    To attribute his “body breaking down” because of steroids/HGH/whatever instead of the fact he got his knee shredded twice by direct, brutal hits is ridiculous.

    Oh well, release the trolls.

    i’d imagine he’ll be wearing some type of extra protection on that knee when the season starts right?
