    Wow. 610 AM just talked about Cushing missing 'significant time' due to a knee injury he sustained during practice. Cato June is also apparently hurt.

    WTF.:gun:

    That sucks.

    I hope the injury concerns that haunted him in college do not follow him throughout his career.

    Sigh.

    I had almost forgotten what a kick in the balls it is to be a Texans fan sometimes.

    Remember that year we came off the 7-9 year and we were so pumped because our schedule looked relatively easy and we thought we had a much better team?......

    Injuries really suck. I was looking forward to seeing him in this up coming game.

    Personally, I have to admit that I've been half waiting for this to happen.

    Well then I guess we will see him play at our first home preseason game, no way I would put him out there for a series or 2 this Saturday night....

    It appears it's only a sprain. It could've been worse.

    I hope that's all it is and he's back for action before pre-season is over. :crying:

    How long does a sprained knee take to recover.

    I was a Clay Matthews guy. I wasn't so hot on Cushing because I was afraid he would be injury prone.

    Cush has everything set up to win me over. All that was left for him to do was to show me on the football field. His attitude, professionalism, the way he carries himself, etc., all that stuff he has absolutely knocked out of the park... but this was what worried me about him. I was afraid he would have series of not overly-serious, but bad-enough injuries that he's always going to miss a game here or there.

    Hopefully this is just a fluke.

    When camp first started . DeMeco told him to SLOW DOWN. its early in camp.
    He needs to listen to the veterans and maybe this would not happen.

    I pray its not nothing major...:texflag:

    Houston, again.
    That would be pretty much a June Allison type of answer.... it Depends. My guess would be something in the 3-6 week range assuming nothing is partially tore and what exactly is sprained. My concern is that this team has a history of being less than forth coming regarding the extent of an injury.
