The Texans have lost middle linebacker Brian Cushing for the year with a torn ACL. As their only interior defender of any value, as well as the only linebacker on the roster that plays on dime downs, this is a huge blow for the defense. Bradie James will be counted on to take over the dime looks, and Tim Dobbins will take over when Houston needs two linebackers.
