Texans LB Brian Cushing left Sunday's loss to the Jaguars with a concussion. He'll need to pass through the league protocol before returning, but he shouldn't be on IDP rosters anyway. Missing further time would either push rookie Zach Cunningham or rookie Dylan Cole into the starting lineup.

Texans LB Brian Cushing is active for today's game against the Titans. It's not clear whether he'll play his full role right away after missing the past 2 games with a knee sprain, though. So we'd try to hold off on using Cushing in IDP leagues.

Texans ILB Brian Cushing is questionable for Sunday's game against the Titans after returning to practice this week. It's a quicker-than-expected recovery from his Week 1 MCL sprain. Cushing was non-committal on his game status this week, so we'll check on him Sunday morning. You should lean elsewhere for your IDP lineup.

Texans ILB Brian Cushing returned to practice Wednesday and said there's a "possibility" he'll play Sunday against the Titans, according to ESPN's Sarah Barshop. Cushing has been out since Week 1 with a knee sprain. HC Bill O'Brien said the team will evaluate Cushing every day after practice to determine if he's ready to play. You should be cautious with your IDP lineup even if Cushing returns to the field. He's not a "can't miss" fantasy starter even when fully healthy.

The Houston Chronicle reports that Texans ILB Brian Cushing is expected to miss 4-6 weeks after suffering an MCL sprain in Sunday's win over the Bears. Max Bullough stepped in for Cushing on Sunday and collected 5 solo tackles. He figures to continue in Cushing's place. But even Cushing hasn't posted big fantasy numbers when healthy recently. It's tough to care about Bullough in IDP leagues. Perhaps Benardrick McKinney -- who tied for the team lead by playing 98% of defensive snaps Sunday -- will tally a few more tackles with Cushing out. But we haven't been impressed with him as a player. The ILBs in Houston look like a group to just avoid in your IDP league.
