HOUSTON — The Houston Texans have placed star linebacker Brian Cushing on the physically unable to perform list as he recovers from a left knee injury.

Cushing was lost to the team last Oct. 20 when blocked by Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles. The 2009 Defensive Rookie of the Year has been plagued by injuries throughout his five pro seasons.

Cushing is eligible to come off the PUP list at any time during training camp, and he still counts against Houston's 90-man roster limit.

Houston also placed second-year linebacker Trevardo Williams and rookie nose tackle Louis Nix III on PUP. Nix was a third-round pick in May.

Tackle Brennan Williams was waived after he failed a physical.
