[to top of second column]
Mario Williams has played his best in the two prime time games he's appeared in, combining for 6 1/2 sacks and forcing a fumble. The top overall pick in 2006 said he'll approach this game the same way, even though it's preseason.
And he's looking forward to getting a "crack" at Favre.
"To me a sack is a sack," he said. "But I guess if everybody's going to be watching him, hopefully if I'm closer to him, I guess they'll be watching me. I'll take it that way and see what happens."
Houston is still waiting to see first-round pick Brian Cushing in a game after the linebacker injured his knee early in training camp. Cushing did individual drills in practice Thursday, and Kubiak hopes he starts working with the team later this week.
Cushing said it's unlikely that he'll play against the Vikings, but Kubiak is more optimistic.
"I hope that he's begging to play on Monday night," Kubiak said. "I'm hoping he makes that much progress. ... He's awfully close, but we've just got to be careful with what we're doing with him.
