The Houston Texans beat the San Diego Chargers Monday night 23-17 but have likely lost middle linebacker Brian Cushing for the season.
Cushing appears to have a torn ACL, suffered when New York Jets guard Matt Slauson hit him in the back of the left knee.
âThey tell me he got caught on a play and his foot mightâve gotten stuck in the turf," said Gary Kubiak after the game. "Obviously, thatâs crisis No. 1. Weâll take him home and get it looked at. Obviously, weâre very concerned. Letâs sit here and hope for the best.ââ
The Texans are 5-0 for the first-time-ever but will have to survive without their best defensive player. Â Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips will now turn to Tim Dobbins and Bradie James.
âWe played most of the game tonight without him. The guys who went in played well. If heâs out weâll have to play with what we have.ââ
