Getty Images Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing underwent an MRI on his knee on Monday and according to head coach Gary Kubiak, everything checked out fine. “He’s fine. Everything is fine.

Even though everything looks “fine” right now, there’s always the chance that Cushing’s knee can get worse or flare up at any point during the offseason, training camp or the regular season.
