“Cushing came out of the game with a concussion, like I told you all,” head coach Gary Kubiak said in his press conference Monday. “He’s feeling much better today, so he starts the protocol process. I couldn’t begin to tell you exactly where he’s at in that process. He was a part of the meetings. He was a part of everything that we were doing.”
After leaving in the third quarter, Cushing would not return for the remainder of Sunday’s 23-20 overtime loss to Seattle.
The five-year veteran linebacker recently signed a six-year contract extension and leads the Texans defense this season with 44 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits, and a touchdown. Cushing also added his first forced fumble of the year in the second quarter against Seattle.
