According to Brian McIntyre of, Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has been released from the hospital after a two-night stay to help him recover from a minor virus.

“Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was released from the hospital this morning after a two-night stay for what the team has characterized as a “minor” virus.

“Despite the hospitalization and missed practice time, head coach Gary Kubiak wouldn’t rule out Cushing playing in the team’s preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers on Saturday,” reported McIntyre.

“€œCush has been released (from the hospital) this morning right before we came out to practice,” Kubiak said on Thursday morning, per McIntyre. “I’€™m hoping he€’s over here this afternoon. Heâ€s feeling much better. As long as he’€™s feeling well, he’€™ll go through our jog-through in the morning and he’€™ll get his repetitions on Saturday, so we’€™ll see, but he’€™s doing better.”
