Cushing (rest) returned to practice Tuesday, Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cushing did not play in Houston's preseason opener against San Francisco, nor did he participate in the joint practice sessions leading up to Sunday's game, but that was due to his veteran status. "Yeah, it was just a couple days just to rest," Cushing said. "I'm kind of getting up there in years and experience. Any kind of break benefits me at this point in my career." Cushing is coming off a season in which he played every game and led Houston's defense with 110 tackles.

Cushing (rest) will not play in Houston's preseason opener versus San Francisco, NFL.com's James Palmer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Cushing is simply receiving a veteran's day off, as he isn't injured and is listed as a healthy scratch. This shouldn't affect his level of participation in practice going forward, though, but he is questionable for Houston's next preseason game versus the Saints on Saturday as the team may continue to rest their oft-injured defensive playmaker.
