Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (knee) was medically cleared Thursday, April 17.
Huddle Up: Cushing is regarded as one of the Texans' defensive leaders, but it's hard to set to tone from the sideline as he's missed 21 of of the team's 33 games, including the playoffs, over the past 2 seasons due to injury issues.

Updating a previous report, Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing (knee) was on crutches after the Week 7 game against the Kansas City Chiefs due to the left knee injury he suffered during the game. He is believed to have a torn lateral cruciate ligament in his left leg which will likely require surgery. The injury is not believed to be as bad as last season when he missed 11 games due to a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee, but he is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. He is also believed to have a broken leg, according to sources. He will have an MRI Monday, Oct. 21.
Huddle Up: Cushing is snakebitten. Darryl Sharpton might be your best bet at replacing Cushing in IDP leagues.

Houston Texans LB Brian Cushing agreed to terms Tuesday, Sept. 3 on a 6-year contract extension that pays $55.643 million, with $21 million guaranteed.
Huddle Up: Cushing totalled 29 tackles, one interception, two passes defensed and a forced fumble in 5 games before an ACL tear cut his season short. There's no question the Texans' D has more teeth with Cushing in the lineup, but we'll see if he can live up to his shiny new deal.
