Brian Cushing torn ACL .. out for season
 
The one thing certain to derail any championship season is injuries. Key injuries.

Brian Cushing would be a HUGE loss.

Please update this thread with any information you might hear about Cushing's knee.

Thanks.

Was walking on his own power but that doesn't mean anything. He could tear a ligament and just be riding on full adrenaline. Hopefully he's alright.

Texans tweeted that his return is questionable and it is his knee

hopefully not bad

I hope it's nothing major. He's worked very hard, and deserves some time on top.

Please be a one or two week injury at worst...

After that replay I truly believe that was an intentional dirty hit.

I am expecting the worst. If he is able to return at any time before the end of the season it will be a victory.

Just a cut block.
Perfectly legal.

opposing teams have been complain about the texans "chop blocking" . i wouldn't be surprised if it was an intentional hit.

I'd be thrilled with 6-8 weeks. But, based on reactions, I think the year: ACL. We will need Sharpton back and healthy this year or a trade, because we don't have another LB that can cover. We will be horribly exposed against the good QBs come playoff time.

@PayneNFL: Before somebody makes misguided statement, there is a difference between a legal zone blocking cut and what Jets OG seemingly did to Cushing
Quote:

@PayneNFL: If its what it looked like, that block was either illegal roll up block or clip, depending on proximity to line of scrimmage.
Quote:

@PayneNFL: Debatable whether that was "close line play." Regardless, blocking from behind and below the knee constitutes a clip even in close line play

Any timetable on Sharpton's return?

PUP is six weeks, then 3 weeks to make decision... So, we'll know in a month or so. However, I heard he was on crutches at last week's game. So, I'm not optimistic.

Wellp, if he's out for the season, our defense is done.

Lets hope not.

Cushing will not return
