on

It’s difficult to question the toughness of any NFL player, but Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is taking tough to a whole new level.

Apparently, the Texans linebacker is playing with a broken back.

“There’s two fractures in my back, but those are things you have to push through,” Cushing said, via the Houston Chronicle. “Obviously, it’s painful, and I’m not able to get as many reps as I want in practice right now, but I’ll be out there Sunday with my team. I want the guys to know they can count on me, and that means the world to me. I’ve missed a number of games with season-ending injuries, and I don’t want to miss any more time, so as long as I can walk, I’ll be out there.”
