This is Cushing’s second suspension of his career.
Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing has been suspended 10 games for violating the NFL’s policy on performance enhancing substances, the league announced Wednesday evening.
The 30-year-old Cushing was previously suspended for the first four games of the 2010 season due to a previous PED violation.
Cushing will not be able to return to the Texans until late November.

After making 65 tackles in 13 games last season, Cushing recorded three in the team’s season-opening loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend.
Houston resumes its 2017 campaign against the Cincinnati Bengals this Thursday.
