National Football League suspends Texans' Brian Cushing 10-games for violating PED policy

Houston Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing has received a 10-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, the team announced Wednesday.

This is the second time the inside linebacker has been suspended for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances. He is also just one of four players in college football history, along with Archie Griffin, to start in four different Rose Bowl games.

The Texans selected him in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft.

The former USC great was a first-round pick in 2009 and has played his entire National Football League career with the Texans.

With all of the Texans troubles at quarterback in the franchise's short history, their defense has been a stabilizing presence in recent years. Rookie running back Leonard Fournette carried the ball 26 times for 100 yards and a touchdown in the Jaguars' 29-7 victory. He's spent all nine of his seasons with the Texans.

Cushing still has two years remaining on his contract following the 2017 season but his deal includes an opt-clause next offseason, according to Spotrac.
