Semi-bad news for the Houston Texans.
NFL insider Ian Rapport is reporting Texans LB Brian Cushing has been diagnosed with a torn MCL and will miss the next six weeks.

The fact that Cushing doesn’t need surgery immediately is a good sign, as he’ll be able to return this season, hopefully in time for a Texans playoff push.
