I wonder how much Cush could possibly lose just in a personal achievement bonus. I guess it depends on how his contract is structured, but, in Cush's case, I bet he's out a hell of a lot more than $10,000! We have 11 more games, not counting any playoff games, and with Cushs ability to make plays this injury could cost him BIG bucks!! Just wondering about this! Not that familiar with how contracts are structured.
