HOUSTON (AP) - Houston coach Gary Kubiak has growing concerns about his increasingly thin linebacking corps. Brian Cushing has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for testing positive for a banned substance. The two players pegged to take his spot have been hurt during training camp.
That's left Kubiak scrambling to find a solution with less than two weeks left before the regular season opener. Xavier Adibi (groin) and Danny Clark (knee) ran conditioning drills on Wednesday, and Kubiak has given no timetable for their return. When camp began, they were the front-runners to replace Cushing.
