Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has had mild knee issues from time to time during his three NFL seasons. His knee is bothering him enough during offseason workouts to merit an MRI.
Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that the team decided to take a loot at what is going on inside the joint.
“No, just his knee got sore on him; and I’m going to err on that side this time of year, so we sent him down for an MRI,” Kubiak said, via comments distributed by the team. “He did come out and watch practice, and it gives some other guys a chance to get some reps.”
Cushing has never missed a regular-season game due to a knee injury, or any injury for that matter. The only regular-season games he ever has missed arose from a four-game suspension for violation of the league’s steroids policy.
