Manning On Cushing: "Coach Told Us After The Game That It Looks Very Serious."

The Houston Texans are in the city that never sleeps and neither does Twitter with word about Texans LB Brian Cushing and his left knee injury. A few updates from Twitter shed some light on Cushing's status, but there is still nothing official.

Per Houston Chronicle writer Tania Ganguli, Houston Texans safety Danieal Manning said on air to Comcast Sports Network's James Palmer: "Coach told us after the game that it [Brian Cushing's left knee injury] looks very serious."

Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips
told Nick Scurfield, "We'll see what happens. I don't think we've finalized anything on whether he's playing or not [Sunday night against the Green Bay Packers]."

It appears Houston will look for a more thorough examination of the left knee tomorrow morning. I would not expect the team to say anything official until after Coach Kubiak's press conference tomorrow afternoon.
