I dont understand the over reaction to the Cushing photo...guys are walking past him into the locker room and showing love/respect...

What are guys supposed to do? Ignore him. Act like he's invisible?

As far as kubiak saying he's very concerned, his star middle lb left the game with a knee injury. If he's not very concerned he's a dumb ass.

I think I'll wait until I hear something definitive until I panic.

Losing Cushing for the year will be a SIGNIFICANT blow to this team. Book it.
But it's not a death knell. Yes, it sucks. Big time. But good teams learn to overcome. Next man up.

The Jets OL was down on the play, got back up, and aimed at the back of Cushing's knee. At this point, I'm convinced it was deliberate. I rewound it on DVR several times and watched it.

He's done this year. I appreciate the optimism but Kubiak is pretty easy to read... I've torn my ACL. You know when it happens and everything about Cushing's reaction indicated he knew it had happened.

crutches are usually a pretty bad sign

anyone that knows the texans MO regarding serious injuries recognise that this one has all the signs of a serious, season ending injury. enjoy your sleep tonite!

Meh. Last sentence of your post is typical cliched sports tripe. It's garbage. You can be a good team all you want. The Texans were a good, nay, great team last year too but couldn't overcome all the injuries. You can play utopian fantasy "they should win if they're really good!" stuff all you want. Losing Brian Cushing for anything near the rest of the season is disastrous.

So, if Cushing is indeed down for the season, does our defense go down with him?

I walked on my own for a month with no ACL. Actually, an MCL tear often causes more trauma to the knee. A complete ACL tear feels funny and unstable but doesn't always have a ton of swelling and does not usually inhibit the ability to walk.

It is a big deal. However, it is something that can be overcome. Because our lack of depth at the position, we need to be surprised by someone like Mister Alexander, get Sharpton back at 100%, or make a move to acquire a LB that is an asset in nickel and dime defense... It stinks but we did not lose our QB. Team will need to adjust. Those of you that hate the conservative offensive playcalling, may get your wish. The Texans may transition to a game plan involving greater expectations for the offense.

Is throwing Mercilus in there and getting him some reps out of the question at this point? I can't see how he would be worse than Mister Alexander who will be starting once Dobbins goes down. He looks like Rudy in there playing Cushing's position. He's so tiny looking.
