Texans' linebacker Brian Cushing has cleared the NFL's concussion protocols, and will be allowed to play at San Francisco on Sunday.

Cushing suffered a mild concussion near the end of Houston's overtime loss to Seattle last week.

Deepi Sidhu of HoustonTexans.com reports that Cushing was confident he would be on the field this weekend:

“There were some steps that I had to go through, but everything went real smooth. There were no setbacks or anything like that. Pretty much, the general consensus the whole time was that I would play.”
The 5-year veteran currently leads the Texans defense with 25 tackles.
