What we all thought before we drafted him has come true. Apparently Cushing has been suspended 4 games for violating the NFL's steroid policy...I had grown to love Cushing but this is just killing me!
NFL suspended Texans SLB Brian Cushing four games for violating the league's steroids policy.
Source: Adam Schefter on TwitterAnalysis - We wish we could say we're surprised, but just look at the guy. Cushing will sit against Indianapolis, Washington, Dallas, and Oakland. To compensate, the Texans figure to move weak-side starter Zach Diles to "SAM" for the first month of the season, with Xavier Adibi joining the lineup. Houston's run defense is likely to take a hit. Cushing was the Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2009, helping the Texans to field the NFL's No. 13 overall defense.
