Cushing on track for Week One

Texans linebacker Brian Cushing left the PUP list and rejoined his teammates at practice on Wednesday, returning to action after his second season-ending leg injury in two years.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, there’s currently no reason to believe Cushing won’t be ready to go by Week One.  Cushing was more guarded in his comments to reporters.

“I think we’re just going to go day-by-day and kind of feel it out and do what’s best for myself, the team and everybody else,” Cushing said regarding the timetable for his return to game action.  He didn’t rule out playing this weekend against the Falcons, but that would seem to be a stretch.

Cushing suffered a broken leg and a torn LCL last October.  A year earlier, he sustained a torn ACL on a low block.

    Before all the haters emerge in this thread and claim he’s made of glass, realize that he sustained both injuries to poor technique blocks. In 2012, it was by a peel back block (Now ILLEGAL). and the second by the Charles’ uncharacteristically throwing a low block directly to the knees of Cushing.

    He better not work out to much….he might test positive from ” over training ” again……

    It’s Merroidman all over again.

    The “glass joe” syndrome will continue from here on out.

    If Texans put up another Zero Spot in their offense in the next pre season game, they should be looking to get mallett.

    I think Cushing and Merriman have something in common

    Cushing hasn’t done anything since they made him stop taking steroids.

    His body can’t hold up without his “juice”.

    Its ok – the Colts have taken back over the AFC South, the way it should be!
