Brian Cushing LB Houston Texans
In a development that absolutely NO ONE saw coming, Houston Texans rookie of the year LB Brian Cushing has been suspended 4 games... for violating the NFL's policy on steroids and related substances. The Pro Bowler in 2009 will no longer be a Pro Bowler in next year because of the "Shawne Merriman Rule" which states that you cannot be selected to a Pro Bowl the same year you are suspended for taking steroids. Cushing was rumored to have tested positive at the combine before him getting drafted by the Houston Texans, but that ended up being false. Or was it?
