    Potentially, positive news.

    @hjam72 says: I don't trust anything the Texans say regarding injured players that are supposedly ahead of schedule with their recovery....and I've never heard of @briancushing56, but I'd sure like to have a healthy Brian Cushing on the roster.

    At some point wasn't Dominck Davis ahead of schedule?

    I'm pretty sure Tony Boselli was ahead of schedule for a while too.

    Early status seldom gives you the most important information. With this injury, it will be closer to the 6-9 month period in the rehab when more grounded information going to the state of performance recovery will become "legitimate."

    If there is genuine truth to this report, at ~3 months, all it could mean is that he has had not complications such as infection or inordinate scar formation, and that the range of motion in his knee has been managed to return to pretty well back to normal. At this point in time rehab would be concentrating on strengthening all the muscle groups around the knee joint, as the muscles would not now be expected to be back more than 60-75% under the best of circumstances.

    Has anyone ever been behind schedule?

    Not that ant team or player would admit contemporaneously.

    Great, he can run the Wildcat in the red zone. It's a step up from what we've been doing.

    OK, guys, don't worry. I'm actually progressing ahead of schedule. I'm just resting a little to catch my breath, thank you.

    So is this going to turn into another "***** about how the Texans report on injuries" thread, because it seems to be heading that direction. Especially regarding the 2nd post.

    Should be able to go after the bye week. Everything is checking out, able to go in practice, but just want to make sure they're 100%.

    One month later he was released by the Texans due to a "setback" that would require further surgery.

    The doom and gloom. Lets just take it at face value. Getting him back 100% is the most important "aquisition" of the offseason. When Cush says he will be back better than ever, I believe him.

    Want to bet that Poseys surgery went well and soon he will be ahead of schedule as well.

    BTW, Schaub is a top 10 QB according to BoB. LOL

    I'll settle for an honest "on schedule." I wouldn't want him pushed too hard into a "setback." If anyone can make a strong ultimate recovery, I wouldn't put down a bet against Cushing. ;)

    Cushing has definitely lost significant weight [see video].........a natural consequence of not being able to fully exercise with possibly some intentional weight loss to facilitate his rehab. It's still hard to accept that he is "ahead of schedule" when most ACL patients will be participating in light running by the 3rd month or 4th month postop , and he began running at the 5th month. At least, there have been no reported "setbacks."

    There's good reason to feel doom and gloom. I don't expect Cushing to be 100% this coming season and he may never be 100% as a matter of fact. Even with Cushing back I think ILB is the weakest position on defense and we need to seriously address it this year. Texans can't rely on Cushing to carry the full load and he shouldn't honestly.

    He's a good interview. He's seems to have matured even more.

    He also looks like he's around 230 lbs. He'll probably be 245 by the start of the season.

    Yea I watched the interview and he looks like a shadow of his former self. He could be maybe 25 lbs lighter than his playing weight last Fall ?
