Houston Texans inside linebacker Brian Cushing has received a 10-game suspension for violating the league's performance-enhancing drug policy, the team announced Wednesday.

Cushing was in the concussion protocol this week and had already been ruled out for the Thursday Night Football game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cushing previously was suspended four games in 2010 for testing positive for HCG, a fertility drug that was on the NFL's banned substances list.

Man Utd boss Mourinho rejects Jones criticism after Stoke draw
Stoke have half of United's points haul, collecting five from four games. "We'll never just sit back and wait for the inevitable. And your question is not correct, I am sorry". "You could argue United played more long balls, and why wouldn't they?"

Cushing, 30, received a four-game suspension in 2010 for his first violation of the league's PED policy, and he is now in the NFL's concussion protocol following Week 1.

The former NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year has amassed 421 tackles, 240 assists and 12 sacks in his nine-year NFL career.

In 2011, he was named second-team All-Pro.

Update: Cushing's attorney released a statement that they will not be filing an appeal, via ESPN's Adam Schefter.
