Houston Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing told the Houston Chronicle’s John McClain that he will be cleared in two weeks from his leg injury he suffered against the Kansas City Chiefs. Cushing broke his fibula and tore his fibular collateral ligament after he was chopped down by Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles.
This marked the second season in a row that Cushing landed on the injured reserve with his 2012 injury coming on a low block that tore his ACL. Cushing has only played in 12 games the past two seasons and is an important piece of the Texans defense when healthy.
Cushing made it clear he is going to be “full speed” before OTAs opens up for the 2014 season.
