FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) – The NFL is reviewing the block by New York Jets guard Matt Slauson that ended the season for Houston Texans star linebacker Brian Cushing because of a knee injury.

Cushing was hurt in the second quarter of the Texans’ 23-17 win Monday night on a low, rolling hit by Slauson. Cushing walked off the field on his own, but didn’t return. He was placed on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

League spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed that the play is being looked at, as USA Today first reported Wednesday.

Slauson insisted that the block was legal and hoped it didn’t warrant a fine by the league.
