The Houston Texans lost linebacker Brian Cushing to a torn ACL in week 5 last year. Now with the team preparing to take on the Miami Dolphins in week 2 of the preseason, it looks like Cushing will be playing.
That’s part of the process,” Kubiak said. “See how he’s doing. He did well in pads today, not sure if we’ll be in pads tomorrow or not, but all signs are pointing to him being able to get some reps but we’ll see. We’ll make a decision at the end of the week”
While the Texans’ defense did okay after the loss of Cushing, thank you J.J Watt, the team was noticeably weaker against the pass. Cushing will be a nice welcome to an already strong defensive front.
