Texans' Brian Cushing: Suspended 10 games for PED violation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cushing (concussion) has been suspended 10 games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, Sarah Barshop of reports.

Already set to miss the Texans' Week 2 tilt with the Bengals due to the concussion, Cushing will now have to wait until Week 13 to play again. The Texans will look to rookies Zach Cunningham and Dylan Cole to start alongside Bernardrick McKinney, who supplanted Cushing as the IDP of choice from Houston's linebacking corps last season. Cushing was previously suspended four games for a PED violation in 2010, which explains why he was subject to a lengthier suspension this time around.
