Texans LB Brian Cushing has a reputation as a bit of a loose cannon on the field, and this mic’d up segment from NFL Films’ Sound FX gives us a bit more insight as to exactly why he’s earned that rep. Watch as Cushing offers to step in at QB, admires his guns on the big screen, says he “likes his odds” going 11-on-1 against the Browns offense, and does pushups on the sideline to keep warm.
But the wildest moment comes when Cushing removes his helmet during an altercations with a Browns lineman, who delivers a headbutt splitting Cushing’s forehead wide open (see banner pic). Afterwards, Cushing only had to say “I’ll just keep my helmet on from now on”.

Bucs-Texans in-game chat
The Houston Texans sit atop the AFC South thanks to one of the most potent rushing attacks and stingiest defenses in the NFL.
That has the team hopeful it can make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, but coach Gary Kubiak knows there's still a long way to go.

When Andre Johnson first hurt his hamstring, it was estimated he might only miss 2-3 games.
