Mercilus is an OLB though. Would they shift Barwin or Reed inside?

Seriously, I would look at moving Brooks Reed inside and let Mercilus take Reeds spot. Brooks looks like he could play MLB, don't know if he is smart enough, but looks like he has the intensity to do so...

Would also look at Braman at MLB...

Just my opinion but I think Mister Alexander will always be a special teams guy who can maybe spell a starter for a couple of snaps until the other team realizes he's in there and that's the beginning of the end of that. Sharpton I doubt plays again for us and if he does come back he'll probably be hurt before long. He's even smaller than Dobbins. Nope, we're really thing behind Cushing. Much thinner than we were last year behind Mario or DeMeco

Hopefully we get some news on how Sharpton's rehab is going this week. If he's on the PUP, he can go back on the active roster after the Green Bay game.

Don't know. Don't even know if that's viable. Just thinking out loud. The talent behind Cushing is really poor. Dobbins is a good player on a short field. He's a got a talent for being in the right place at the right time but in space he's going to get exposed badly. I just think the best shot we have at filling this hole is maybe going to come from our stacked pile of OLB's.

Lopez just tweeted that Cushing did tear his ACL and will be out for the season. Not confimred yet....How long does it take for an ACL to heal? Any free agent ILB on the market??

maybe we are fortunate enough that the guy is made of tougher stuff than expected and it is only a sprain. Maybe he can go on the temporary IR and be back in time for the playoffs...fingers crossed.

I'd be thinking trade, working the phones *If* Cushing gone for a while.

I hope that the Texans go "ALL IN" this season.

I agree that these things are virtually inevitable. The best you can hope for is not to have too many season-ending injuries.

If we only lose Cushing, we've still got a shot at winning it all. If we lose one or two more of his caliber, we're screwed.

Default Re: Brian Cushing injury

Why would they have made him questionable to return if it was a torn ACL?

If they knew it was a season ending injury, he'd be listed as doubtful or out.

I think its a serious knee sprain that will knock him out 6-8 weeks but he'll be back


Either way the Demeco Ryans move is looking pretty stupid now

Brian Cushing is kiiiiiiiinda the QB of the defense.

Look, I'm not writing off the season. I'm being realistic. Brian Cushing going out for a significant period of time is a big freakin' deal PRECISELY BECAUSE our depth at the position is not very good.

Yep

Reed will probably move inside.

I wonder if they would consider moving Barwin inside?

Is Braman capable of playing ILB?
