Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was carted to the team's locker room after suffering what the team is calling a left knee injury.

Cushing was injured during a blitz of Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith. Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles blocked Cushing below the belt, injuring Cushing and prompting multiple Texans to show their disapproval with Charles. Cushing was helped off the field by Texans' trainers before being carted to the team's locker room.

The Texans said the injury was to Cushing's left knee, which means it's the same knee he injured last year. He missed all but five games of last season with a torn ACL in his left knee.

In parts of six games this season, Cushing has 44 total tackles, 1.5 sacks, and one forced fumble.
