Sep 22, 2013; Baltimore, MD, USA; Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing (56) during the game against the Baltimore Ravens at M

Cushing on dealing with a concussion for the first time:

It was OK. It was very, very mild. It wasn’t too severe or anything. There wasn’t any after effects or residual pains or anything like that. Besides the first five minutes, I was pretty good the entire time.”

 

Cushing on second guessing concussions:

I think it’s pretty common sense that concussions aren’t a good thing for you. Obviously there could be problems afterwards, but that’s why they’re so precautious now and there are so many steps to come back on the field, to make sure you’re fully medically cleared. We understand the risks of playing this game and it may lead to certain things later, but for right now, we have to be smart. If pass through the protocol, then I’m good to return to the field.”
