Houston Texans Linebacker and captain Brian Cushing was mic’d up by NFL films last Sunday for the Texans game against the Seattle Seahawks.
NFL Films put out the video of Cushing on the field, sidelines and even heading to the locker room after sustaining a concussion Thursday on the Texans website. (You can see the video here)
During the video Cushing is talking to Ed Reed on the field about how the team needs to force a turnover.
Reed says, “Let’s go. Let’s go get one.” Implying a turnover for the defense.
Cushing responds, “Hell yeah, hell yeah. We aint got one since the first game.”
That one Cushing was talking about was the interception return for a touchdown he had against the San Diego Chargers that helped the Texans to come back and win that game on a last second field goal.
Cushing also was heard jabbering with Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch a lot during the game.
Before the game Cushing commented on Lynch’s visor and after one tackle said he was “be that gorilla on your back.”
And in a down moment on the field Lynch and Cushing exchange pleasantries and Lynch commented on all the “56” jersies in the stands. Cushing responded, “that’s why I signed the extension. I’ve got to stay here.”
Heading to the locker room Cushing mentioned to the trainer he just thought he should “just go in for a minute.” Cushing never came back on the field and is currently going through the NFL’s concussion protocol.
