Brian Cushing Passed A Lie Detector Test To Prove He Didn't Take PED

Texans LB Brian Cushing took a lie detector test to prove he did not take a performance enhancing drug, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Cushing has denied all along that he took a PED.

The results of his lie detector test, according to Schefter, demonstrated that he did not take a PED.

The NFL doesn't recognize lie detector tests so the suspension obviously still stands but this is Cushing's effort to avoid becoming the NFL poster boy for steroids.

Dating back to high school, Cushing has been surrounded by accusations that he was using steroids or other PEDs. Now that he's guilty -- whether that's because of a PED or a masking agent -- all those accusations have a new found validity.

Lie detector test or not, Cushing will be suspended.
