Based on this news, it appears that, barring any setbacks,
Cushing should be ready for the start of next season. He underwent surgery in
late October, giving himself approximately 10 months to recover before the start
of the 2013 campaign.
Cushing is a pivotal player for the Texans, and Houston’s
defense will only improve with his return to the field. Last season over the
five games he did play in, Cushing recorded 30 tackles with one forced fumble
and one interception.
