brian_cushing_2013Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is scheduled for surgery Tuesday with Dr James Andrews to repair damage to his knee suffered Sunday, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder.

Cushing tore his LCL and fractured his leg when blocked by Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles in the third quarter of Houston’s 17-16 loss Sunday and is out for the season.

It’s the second straight year Cushing has been lost for the season with a left knee injury. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in the same knee in Week 5 last season
