Cushing failed a drug test in September of 2009


Looks like Brian Cushing also failed a drug test in September of last year. this is why the NFL suspended him four games for his most recent violation of the banned substances policy. One more violation, and he's kicked out of the league for a year. His performance will warrant a close, watchful eye in 2010 when he returns from his suspension. Remember, Shawne Merriman was a shell of his former self after they caught him juicing.
