Default Brian Cushing getting an MRI?

I just heard that Cushing did not participate on today's OTA and he will have an MRI made, this is not good at all!

Anybody knows more about it?

Hopefully it will be enough to keep him on the bench through the preseason so nothing too serious happens to him.

Knee issues

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...i-on-his-knee/

Quote:
Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has had mild knee issues from time to time during his three NFL seasons. His knee is bothering him enough during offseason workouts to merit an MRI.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Monday that the team decided to take a loot at what is going on inside the joint.

“No, just his knee got sore on him; and I’m going to err on that side this time of year, so we sent him down for an MRI,” Kubiak said, via comments distributed by the team. ”He did come out and watch practice, and it gives some other guys a chance to get some reps.”

This is a issue every single offseason... am I freaking out if I'm having flashbacks of DD's degenerative knee condition? This is a chronic issue and I smell a microfracture in Cushing's future

Linebackers, Linemen take a lot of blows to their legs (aka their knees).

Granted it's the offseason and we need some good fodder, but let's not overreact!! An MRI could simply be precautionary procedure. That said, Cushing is now a veteran and will be treated with "kit gloves", I don't think it's that big of a deal.

While Doc is spot on, there are cases where someone like me has bone on bone in my right knee, and YET I have cat like reflexes!!

For continuity's sake, I am reposting from the OTA thread.:


Hard to tell with so little info. But one thing that would come to mind, if it is his post surgical knee, is patella (knee cap) chondromalacia (softening of the cartilage on the back side of the patella. Before the surgery for a rupture of the patellar tendon, this area can be traumatized The longer the process of rupture developing and being recognized, the more potential trauma probable, since the patella would not move in a stable fashion over the knee joint, and therefore a grinding away of the cartilage of the back of the patella. Once the tendon is repaired, if it is a little to tight or a little too loose, some additional grinding can occur. Even if the tightness is just right following the surgery, it can theoretically loosen to lead to some instability and continue grinding. Then, of course, any previous grinding that has led to wear away of the cartilage can result in a late and chronic arthritis and its accompanying "soreness." Furthermore, the surgical incision itself can be sore for several years, especially if solidly or repeatedly hit.

Besides not being told which knee, we aren't told if there is swelling, redness or ROM (range of motion) problems. Another injury, in either knee, could have occurred somewhere along the line. We are told that this soreness has been noted throughout the offseason workouts. This could also be a result of the injury at the end of the season, where he was temporarily pulled with a "knee injury." Just too many potential variables and not enough details. Sorry. I can't respond in a more affirmative fashion.

BTW, I held back from initially putting forth the potential steroid question............because I was certain someone would bring it up.

I saw Cush today walk out of the locker room since I had the chance to hangout today and he seemed fine. Walking around just fine and nobody in the locker room seemed concerned about Cush.

But it is a valid concern, yes?

Frankly I was shocked to see Cushing play as well as he did last year --- and his play was nothing short of inspiring.

I would have been much less surprised to have seen him degrade into a less-than-stellar player and never return to his rookie form.

Unfortunately, I still have that nagging feeling that his brand of play --- sacrificing his body on every down --- means his career will be fleeting.

Are there any mesenchymal stem cell treatments out there? Something that generates the chondroblasts and then cartilage in joints?
