Texans linebacker Brian Cushing appears to have blown out his knee while blitzing during the third quarter of Sunday’s Houston vs. Kansas City game.
Jamaal Charles picked up the blitzing backer and threw a low block, hitting Cushing’s knee in the process.
Following is a gruesome video of the play. Please proceed at your own risk.
*UPDATE* Adam Schefter reports that it’s the same knee (left) that Cushing injured last season.

So again … Brian Cushing has a torn LCL and a broken leg. ACL is OK. Needs surgery. Done for the year.
