The Houston Texans have announced they have placed Brian Cushing, Louis Nix III and Trevardo Williams on the PUP list top open the 2014 training camp. The rookies reported to training camp today, and designations for the upcoming camp were handed out landing these three on the PUP list.
Cushing was coming off of a leg injury that put him out for the season in 2013 and is expected to be brought back slowly for the upcoming season. He did
not participate in any offseason practices and there should be little rush to get him back to the field until he is completely healthy.
Williams has struggled to stay on the field and he missed his entire rookie season with a foot injury that landed him on the injured reserve. The outside
linebacker practiced a few days during mini-camp, but has been unable to practice due to an undisclosed injury.
Nix dealt with a knee injury during OTAs, but this one comes as a mystery on why he was placed on the PUP list. Nix was drafted 3rd round out of Notre Dame
and was considered the best nose tackle coming out in the NFL Draft.
With the three being placed on the PUP list, all three can come off the list at any time before the season starts.
