According to Nick Scurfield of HoustonTexans.com, starting linebacker Brian Cushing was held out of practice on Monday due to a sore knee.  Head coach Gary Kubiak said that it’s nothing to be concerned about.

At this point it’s not worth if for a player like Cushing to push things during OTA’s, it’s better to hold him out and make sure he gets healthy.  Hopefully it’s not a sign of something to come.
