Texans head coach says Brian Cushing has a 50/50 chance of playing this week

cushingOn Wednesday night, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported that Texans linebacker Brian Cushing will miss at least one game due to lingering issues with his surgically-reconstructed knee.  On Thursday, coach Bill O’Brien said the report was false.

“First of all, no, I wasn’t aware of that report,” O’Brien told reporters on Thursday.  “I was trying to figure out how to try to get a first down against the Tennessee Titans because it was third-down night.  And secondly, there is no accuracy to that report.”

Brian Cushing is a very solid player and the Texans could truly use him to get passed the Titans this week.  O’Brien went on to say that Cushing has a 50/50 chance to win.

“I think he feels he’s getting better every day,” O’Brien said.  “I think coming off that [ACL] injury, you know, postgame is always, there is a lot of soreness.  We have to ease him back into the week.  Like how we say, he’s day-to-day.  We’ll see how he is tomorrow. We’ll bring him to Tennessee and we’ll see how he is before the game.”
