Cushing Enters NFL’s Concussion Protocol
Houston (CBS Houston) – After being diagnosed with a concussion during the Texans 23-20 loss to the Seahawks, Brian Cushing has entered the NFL’s concussion protocol.
“He’s feeling much better today so he starts the protocol process. I couldn’t begin to tell you exactly where he is in that process. Today he was part of the meetings,” Gary Kubiak said on Monday.
The NFL concussion protocol contains five stages. It can technically be passed in a week but can take longer depending on how the player reacts to testing.
