Brian Cushing held a press conference on Thursday afternoon to explain his violation of the NFL's performance-enhancing drugs policy that landed him a four-game suspension.
"I tested positive for such a small amount it can't be performancing enhancing," Cushing said during a press conference at Reliant Stadium. "I've got to get medical help to find out what it happened and to keep it from happening again. I'm not going to change my workout regime or anything I do because I know I haven't done anything wrong."
Then things got a little bizarre when he said doctors told him the way hCG could have gotten into his body is "through injection or by having a tumor." He found out about the positive test in October and said he spent the rest of the season fearful that he might die from the possibility of having a tumor.
He said prior to this incident he wasn't familiar with hCG.
He also did not agree with a few folks that think he should have given back his rookie of the year award.
