Texans' Cushing suspended for four games
Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing was suspended for the first four games of next season without pay by the NFL for violating the league's policy on banned performance-enhancing substances, the league and the Texans announced.
Cushing's suspension is to begin on Sept. 4 and ends on Oct. 4, according to the announcement.
He is to miss games against the Indianapolis Colts, Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders.
Cushing, the NFL's defensive rookie of the year and a Pro Bowl selection last season, is eligible to participate in training camp and preseason games.
"We were disappointed to learn that Brian has been suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season," Texans General Manager Rick Smith said in a written statement. "Brian is a productive member of our team and this is a significant loss, but we have to be prepared to win without him."
