Texans' Brian Cushing 'fired up' to play for Bill O'Brien

The Houston Texans defense took a hit when they lost linebacker Brian Cushing in October when he suffered a tibial plateau fracture and torn LCL in a Week 7 loss to theChiefs. It was the second season in a row that ended early for Cushing and he is rehabing trying to get ready in time for the 2014 season.

“It’s going well,” he said Friday, via the team’s official website. “I probably have about another month-and-a-half, two months, until I’m 100 percent. So I definitely have to work a little bit. But I’m looking forward to it.”

The 2014 season will be different than the 2013 campaign. Head coach Gary Kubiak was let go mid-season and they hired Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien to replace him. The Texans’ new head coach will be bringing in an entirely new staff as well. Cushing is looking forward to it though.

“I think things are looking up,” Cushing said of next season. “A lot of us are excited and just looking forward to the future.”
