Brian Cushing was not at the Houston Texans practice on Wednesday after he spent Tuesday night in the hospital.

According to KHOU-TV in Houston, Cushing was suffering from a virus, and the team termed the matter as "minor."

"Cush is sick,that’s why he’s not out here," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said. "He’s got a little virus. Got sick on us last night and spent the night in the hospital. It was really a matter of not sending him home. His wife, he can go home and get her sick, and it was late at night when he had got sick on us, so we just gave him a room down the street and had him get a good night’s rest and get him started toward his recovery."
