Texans starting inside linebacker Brian Cushing has been suspended for another violation of the league’s performance enhancing drug policy, per Ian Rapoport.
#Texans LB Brian Cushing is suspended for the next 10 games for violating the NFL policy on performance enhancing substances. Wow.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 13, 2017
In ’10, #Texans LB Brian Cushing was suspended 4 gms for PEDs. The 10-game hit is for his 2nd. A 3rd suspension would be for at least 2 yrs— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 13, 2017
Cushing’s suspension leaves an opening for rookie second round pick Zach Cunningham to assert himself as the future of the Texans defense alongside Benardrick McKinney.
