    ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting via his Twitter page that the Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing is going to be suspended for four games for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. Schefter reports that Cushing appealed his suspension in February and discovered today that his appeal was rejected. Cushing is coming off a great rookie season where he garnered the AFC Defensive Rookie of the Year honor.

    This also means he'll be ineligible for the Pro Bowl next season. Shawne Merriman redux.

    Is this really a shock? Many thought he was juiced to his eyeballs during the draft process (Including myself) and this has just backed it up. Just a little worrying that it took a year for the NFL to catch up.

    Yikes wonder if he'll be as good when he gets off the juice.

    The only thing I'm surprised about is that he got away with it the 1st time, and he was appealing it in Febuary and we're just hearing about it. Now I understand the 4th round Darryl Sharpton pick in the draft, they realy kept this under wraps.

    Folks are super pissed ,4 games. Radio, heck family and tailgate buddies are calling me.
    He doesn't give a flip IMO Cushing was on facebook talking about whoever finds him at the galleria , that he would buy them lunch. As yearly as yesterday. Never has he posted something like that. Nothing but .. vote for me type of crap.
    We need him for those first 4, but we'll see if the team can step up. He's a big loss not to have vs Dallas Clark in the first game.
    Either way this team can make it. I think this kid can bonce back, but he played with a passion. Hope he doesn't miss a beat

    :( I'm just glad the FO can't say their crap don't stink. I mean the squeeky clean image for the team is dead. Time to be open to good players even if the past might be a concern. Ppl change ,some stay the same. That's just a risk.
