Brian Cushing Gets At Least One Vote For Rookie Of The Year

Brian Cushing received 39 of a possible 50 votes for the Associated Press rookie of the year award when the voting took place at the end of the season. Now that he's been suspended for performance enhancing drugs, the question becomes how many votes he'll get.

Well, at least one vote, according to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

I voted for Cushing for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award the day after the season, and I voted for him again today. Why? Because a lot of players have won AP awards after being suspended.

McClain cites Julius Peppers dirty test after winning the AP's rookie of the year award as well as Kevin Williams being voted an All-Pro despite the StarCaps situation.

The final vote -- which some think is already leaning toward Cushing winning again -- is set to be released on Wednesday, but the results will likely leak out sooner than that.
