HOUSTON--Linebacker Brian Cushing has a torn ACL and will be out for the season, Coach Gary Kubiak confirmed in a press conference Tuesday.

An MRI confirmed the Texans worst fears after Cushing left the game in obvious pain in the second quarter. He will have surgery in a few weeks when the swelling goes down, according to Kubiak.

The news put a damper on the Texans 23-17 win over the Jets Monday night.

(It s a) big blow to our team, Kubiak said. You feel bad for Brian because he works so hard and has been playing so well. He s going to be missed.
