Default Cushing expects to play against the Vikes next week

From PFT

Quote:
Texans rookie linebacker Brian Cushing, the fifteenth overall pick in the draft, suffered a sprained LCL in his knee earlier this mont. To heal the injury, he's taking a page out of the Michael Jackson/T.O. playbook.

Cushing has been sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber.

"I take naps in there because it gets too hot to sleep in all night," Cushing recently wrote in his personal blog (via the Houston Examiner).

Cushing also said he hopes to play in the August 31 preseason game against the Vikings, and to be "full speed" for the final preseason game at Tampa.

Even if he only goes in for one or two series, it'll be nice to see him play. I expect him to make a few rookie mistakes, but I also expect him to lay out a few folks. Him and Ryans are going to make a fine pair of LBs for us.

Default Re: Cushing expects to play against the Vikes next week

Cushing will help light the fire that was apparently about dead, under our D. I saw Meco out there trying his best to put some spark under those guys, and they just didn't light it up!

On the other hand, I could care less about preseason! We need him full power for the Jets, not the freaking Vikes or TB. I realize he hasn't played one down as an NFL player, and needs the work out, BUT, geeeeezzzzz, we can't afford to lose him for the entire season just because he wants to PUSH it to early.

Can Cushing play DT? If not, I doubt he'd have made much difference.

Default Re: Cushing expects to play against the Vikes next week

I liked his demeanor and attitude during his interview pre-game. The kid looks like he just wants to get out on the football field and hurt somebody. Holding him out of the Vikes game wouldn't bother me a bit since it is still seems kind of early to be coming back.



^^^^^^^^^What are these things?

I'd like him to get about 2 series in but not if he's anything less than 100%. Diles is a solid SAM but i'd prefer to have Cushing there and wouldn't want him to aggravate an injury and make it nagging for the rest of the season.

I'm not worried about him playing in what remains of the preseason, I'm worried about his availability 'bout the 2nd or third game and thereafter after he plays in the regular season opener ?

Yep

I hope the Texans use good judgement. I would hate it if they rush him back and he misses regular season time.

How long does it usually take to heal and be 100% from this type injury C-N-D ?

Default Re: Cushing expects to play against the Vikes next week

I can't find the thread that posted it, but in one of our threads someone posted Cushing's web page (or facebook, I forget). In any case, there was a link to send him an email so I did, welcoming him to Houston. This morning I get an email back from him saying he looks forward to playing and bringing a higher level of intensity to the defense.

Cool.

We do not know the exact extent of the "sprain." If it is a low level sprain, you can expect 2-3 weeks before first return to field action.......not 100% performance. Seeing that determination of healing and return to action is heavily based on the SUBJECTIVE factor of resolving pain with activity, it leaves me somewhat worried that Cushing may not be entirely candid with his progress due to his zealous nature of always pushing himself to the max with whatever he does.

Remember also that we are relying on the Texans and Cushing being candid and candid about his injury. LCL damage very often is accompanied by structural damage to other knee elements. If the damage is greater than low level sprain and/or is accompanied by additional structural damage, return to action could easily be delayed for 6-8 weeks............especially, if there is "re-injury" or extending of the injury due to too early return.

Unfortunately, we fans do not necessarily have accurate and detailed injury information to work with in order to precisely answer your original question.

As much as I want to see Cushing in action, I do not wish him to push too hard to play againt the Vikes. I do realize he needs some reps before reagular season begins. However, we really need him from September 13th against the Jets.

GO TEXANS!!
