Schefter: Cushing Failed Test In September

Full story here. Relevant excerpt:

Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was suspended due to a test he took in September and played the entire season under that specter -- a season where he was named The Associated Press' Defensive Rookie of the Year -- and went to the Pro Bowl, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Cushing appealed the test in February and lost -- and was suspended this month by the NFL.

Per an earlier agreement with the NFL and the NFLPA, any player who tests positive for performance-enhancing substances is not allowed to play in the Pro Bowl -- meaning Cushing would not be allowed to play following the 2009 season.

Failed in September, huh? Yikes.
