When discussing highlights of Pittsburgh’s Monday night win over the Texans on Tuesday’s edition of Pro Football Talk on NBCSN, Ross Tucker noticed that Houston linebacker Brian Cushing was having trouble moving.
He was, because of his knee.
Per a league source, Cushing will miss at least one game to rest his knee, which has been bothering him for the last two weeks. The source says Cushing hasn’t been close to 100 percent, and that the knee has been drained a few times recently.
It’s the same knee in which Cusing tore the ACL last year.
The goal is to give Cushing some rest in the hopes that the knee will improve. With two games left before the bye (against the Titans and Eagles), don’t be surprised if he’s out until Week Eleven at Cleveland.
