Texans LB Cushing returns to start second half vs. Falcons

HOUSTON -- Texans linebacker Brian Cushing started the second half of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons after leaving with an apparent right knee injury earlier in the game.

Cushing left the game during the second quarter and had to be helped off the field with the assistance of two trainers. He was initially brought to the trainer's table, where his right knee was examined. The good news was that when Cushing headed to the locker room for further evaluation, he was walking on his own power.

The Texans didn't make an official announcement on Cushing's injury.
