Cushing 'Stunned' When He Lost Suspension Appeal

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports talked to Texans LB Brian Cushing after he heard he had been suspended for the first four games of the season.

Cushing tells Glazer the violation came during a random test during the 2009 season.

Cushing also says steroids did not trigger the violation. It's possible that it was a substance used to mask steroids but that's speculative.

He learned of the suspension in February and was "stunned" when he lost the appeal.

Whether he has a good excuse or not, Cushing will be out week 1-4 for the Texans.
