Cushing is down and out with a concussion.

Our defense looks like they're hurting themselves in this game. Bloody face aside, JJ Watt's arm looks to be bothering him.

Why? All of our other players have been playing the week after a concussion.

The new policy states, in part: "Once removed for the duration of a practice or game, the player should not be considered for return-to-football activities until he is fully asymptotic, both at rest and after exertion, has a normal neurological examination, normal neuropsychological testing, and has been cleared to return by both his team physician(s) and the independent neurological consultant."

He doesn't get clear by one, even if the other clears him, he sits

They haven't. But it all depends how they progress through the protocol.

Didn't both Hopkins and AJ return the week after they had concussions?

Hopkins was preseason. Right or wrong tons of players are coming back the next week after concussions.

I can't imagine Brian Cushing not being ready to play on Sunday Night, primetime game on NBC, against the 49ers. He will likely be cleared to return by the end of the week and he has a full day to prepare on Sunday unlike an ordinary day game.

1 injury in 4 years is extremely injury prone?

He got very little guaranteed money - $9 mil out of $55. Patrick Willis got $29 mil guaranteed.
In college Cushing had dislocated shoulder and ankle injuries. As a Texan he played through some injuries but they cost him effectiveness and playing time and caused listings of probable or questionable several times. In '09 shoulder and foot. In '10 knee, foot, neck. In '11 foot, knee, elbow, hamstring, ribs, knee. In '12 ribs, ACL. Yes, that's what I call extremely injury prone.

Among Cushing and 2 other easily hurt players, Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub, I'd like to bet somebody a 12 pack. My contention is that at least one of these will not play in all 16 regular season games.
Just like I said, extremely injury prone.

And still wrong. Concussions can happen to any player.

This is what they said about Andre. He was right as rain before Wednesday practice. Hope this holdd true for Cush.
