Can confirm NFL Network report Brian Cushing out for season with torn LCL and a fractured fibula. Will undergo surgery.—
John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) October 21, 2013
Brain Cushing left the Houston Texans 17-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs after a low block from Jamaal Charles. That play will be the last one the Texans defensive captain will play in 2013.
The NFL Network and Sports Radio 610 and Houston Chronicle’s John McClain are both reporting Cushing has a torn knee ligament and a broken leg that will force him to miss the rest of the season.
Cushing missed the last 11 weeks of the season in 2012 with a torn knee ligament after a low block in week five against the Dolphins.
