Cushing gets a new 'do

Rookie linebacker Brian Cushing is sporting a new hairstyle today on Day 4 of Texans training camp. I heard rumors of a haircut yesterday after the morning practice, but Cushing showed up at the afternoon practice with his long locks still intact. Not today. Cushing now has a buzz cut with a mohawk.

UPDATE (12:12 p.m.): Cushing said after practice that it was part of the team's "rookie entertainment." He had to sing a song, then get his haircut on stage by DeMeco Ryans, Matt Schaub and David Anderson. "It's about two years right there off in about 30 seconds," he said. "It's a lot quicker to cut than to grow."

Right tackle Eric Winston shared the news on his Twitter page last night, saying that "we gave him the Matt Schaub fade."

I'll definitely have a picture of this in my blog after practice.

UPDATE (12:41 p.m.): As promised:


We'll have shots of the new 'do from all angles in our daily photo slideshow later this afternoon.
