Pro Football Talk: Per League Source, MRI Confirms Cushing's Torn ACL

Roughly 15 minutes from head coach Gary Kubiak's afternoon press conference, Pro Football Talk has tweeted a league source confirms to the website that an MRI has confirmed that Houston Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing has a torn ACL. During last night's game against the New York Jets, Cushing was cut-block from his blindside and fell to the ground. Though the former USC Trojan walked off under his own power, speculation has been that he has a torn ACL since the post-game.

The extent of the ACL tear is currently unknown, but we will probably find out at Kubiak's press conference 3:30 pm central time when the Houston head coach confirms the injury. We will update this StoryStream with Kubiak's comments and the extent of the tear, but chances are likely that Brian Cushing's 2012 season is over due to a torn left ACL.
