The Texans will welcome back Brian Cushing at Wednesday's practice. Asked how happy he'd be to see him on the field, defensive end Antonio Smith said, "Real happy. He told me when he came back he was going to let people have it. He said he was going to get 'player of the week' his first week back. I want to see that."
Despite his personal success Sunday, Smith couldn't be satisfied with the Texans' overall defensive effort.
"I feel good to have had a good game," he said, "but I still think we've got a lot of work to do on defense. We've got to do better getting to the quarterback and stopping the pass. I think we're giving up too many points and passing yards."
