Houston (CBS Houston) – Brian Cushing will miss Sunday’s game against the Titans due to knee issues. Pro Football Talk reported that Cushing would be out at least a week, if not more and he is not active for the Texans this week.

“If it was just soreness and pain I could play through it,” Cushing said Friday. “But if it’s at the point where I could be hurting something or doing something worse, then we have to take into account with the decision what’s best for everyone”

The past two years have ended with knee injuries for the linebacker.

“There’s no one who wants to be out there more than I do,” he said. “That’s just the bottom line. It’s been frustrating, but it’s been a frustrating three years. So it’s something I’ve kind of had to learn to live with, play with and deal with. It’s been tough, but at the same time, we kind of have to look out for the longevity of this season.”

Mike Mohamed and Akeem Dent will see increased roles in his absence.
