Brian Cushing believed to have torn LCL, broken leg

Immediately after Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing went down in the third quarter of the team’s Week 7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, it appeared that it was a very serious injury that could bring an end to his season.

It was just a year ago that Cushing suffered a torn ACL, so we were all hoping it would not be the same injury. As it turns out, the initial belief is that his ACL is still intact, but he is still expected to miss the season with a reported torn LCL.

From Albert Breer of the NFL Network:


It would be a devastating loss for the Texans, who are already struggling, if the diagnosis is confirmed on Monday after Cushing undergoes an MRI.

Our thoughts go out to Cushing and we would like to wish him a fully and speedy recovery.
