Brian Cushing has been suspended 10 games by the NFL for a PED violation, the Houston Texans announced on Wednesday.

Cushing, a veteran linebacker, has been suspended for PEDs previously in his career, which is why he received 10 games this time. You may recall that he was suspended the first four games of the 2010 season due to a previous violation. That violation was announced after he received Defensive Rookie of the Year, leading to a re-vote, which he also won.

The 30-year-old was already set to miss Week 2 due to a concussion suffered against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Now Cushing will have plenty of time to let his brain heal before being eligible to return to action in November.
