Despite pulling out a 23-14 victory over the Chicago Bears, the Houston Texans will be without one of their top defensive players.
Linebacker Brian Cushing went to the locker room shortly after sustaining a right knee injury. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports he sustained a sprained right MCL.

The Texans will greatly miss Cushing’s presence, as he’s recorded at least 110 tackles in each of the three seasons he’s been fully healthy.
