It’s been awhile since we’ve seen or really heard from Houston Texans All Pro linebacker Brian Cushing.  Cushing tore his ACL after a nasty cut block From the Jets Matt Slauson.

Per the Houston Texans team website, and owner Bob McNair, Cushing is about a week away from jogging, and ahead of schedule in his rehab.

The healthy return of Cushing is crucial for a team that by the end of the playoffs had all backups starting at linebacker and as a defense was unable to carry the equal weight of their high-profile offensive counterparts.
