Cushing focuses on health after injury

By  | 

HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Texans star linebacker Brian Cushing is turning his focus to his recovery in the wake of a season-ending knee injury.

Cushing, Houston's leading tackler, was hurt in the Texans' 23-17 win over the New York Jets on Monday night on a low, rolling hit by guard Matt Slauson. He was placed on injured reserve with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

A first-round draft pick in 2009, Cushing has no timetable for his return, saying that he's going to "be smart" about it.

Tim Dobbins will start in his place when the Texans (5-0) play Green Bay (2-3) on Sunday night.

Slauson was fined $10,000 by the NFL. Cushing wouldn't say if he thought Slauson's hit crossed the line.
