    The one thing certain to derail any championship season is injuries. Key injuries.

    Brian Cushing would be a HUGE loss.

    Please update this thread with any information you might hear about Cushing's knee.

    Thanks.

    Was walking on his own power but that doesn't mean anything. He could tear a ligament and just be riding on full adrenaline. Hopefully he's alright.

    I hope it's nothing major. He's worked very hard, and deserves some time on top.

    After that replay I truly believe that was an intentional dirty hit.

    I am expecting the worst. If he is able to return at any time before the end of the season it will be a victory.

    Just a cut block.
    Perfectly legal.

    opposing teams have been complain about the texans "chop blocking" . i wouldn't be surprised if it was an intentional hit.

    I'd be thrilled with 6-8 weeks. But, based on reactions, I think the year: ACL. We will need Sharpton back and healthy this year or a trade, because we don't have another LB that can cover. We will be horribly exposed against the good QBs come playoff time.

    PUP is six weeks, then 3 weeks to make decision... So, we'll know in a month or so. However, I heard he was on crutches at last week's game. So, I'm not optimistic.
