An MRI later on Tuesday will reveal the extent of the knee injury suffered by the Texans linebacker.
The Texans won't know for sure what the extent of the injury is until Cushing has an MRI on Tuesday, but they're fearing the worst, as reports surfaced immediately after the game that the team thought he had a torn ACL.
Cushing, the 2009 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, earned a Pro Bowl bid in his rookie season and has not returned, although he earned All-Pro honors in 2011. Through five games he had tallied 29 tackles, an interception and a forced fumble for the undefeated Texans.
