Houston (CBS Houston) – Less than one week from his departure from the psychically unable to perform list, Brian Cushing is participating in all drills for the Texans.

“Just going to be a good week,” Cushing said. “Just kinda gauge things and see where I am, and you know obviously I wanna play.”

Cushing says he looks forward to being out there with teammates and in the competitive situations. Last week Cushing made his return in the first joint practice with the Falcons but didn’t participate in contact drills. Today though, Cushing was a full participant at practice.

The Texans leader at linebacker hasn’t played since he broke his leg and tore his lateral collateral ligament in October.

Cushing said he isn’t certain if he would find himself in game action this preseason, but knows that wouldn’t be a huge hurdle to playing week one.

“You know I can probably play in the first game without doing any preseason,” Cushing said. “But at the same time you know it’s a new scheme, new system. I wanna get as many reps as I can.”

Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said he talks to all the players with injuries each day and he finds out how they feel. He says he especially gauges where veteran players are asking them how they feel and what they think they could do in practice that day.

Cushing likes what he is seeing from his play since his return to the field.

“Obviously I’m progressing,” Cushing said. “You know practicing a little bit now. Just feeling really good about my progress and excited to be back out there.”
