The NFL has suspended Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing for 10 games for violating the NFL's performance enhancing substance policy.

This is the second time the inside linebacker has been suspended for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing substances.

Cushing's suspension begins immediately, although he had already been ruled out of Thursday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals after suffering a concussion in the Texans' season-opening 29-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. A statement is expected soon on Cushing's behalf from his Denver-based attorney Harvey Steinberg.

President Donald Trump is calling new United Nations sanctions on North Korea "just another very small step". On Monday, the UN Security Council voted to tighten sanctions on the North over its sixth nuclear test.

As it stands, Cushing could return for the Texans' November 28 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. During that season Cushing also tallied four sacks and four interceptions.

Cushing was suspended for four games in 2010 for a violation of the National Football League performance-enhancing drug policy. The USC product will miss 10 games as a result of the suspension.

The former first-round pick out of USC was the 2009 AP Defensive Rookie of the Year. The Texans drafted former Vanderbilt All-Southeastern Conference linebacker Zach Cunningham in the second round. Due to the suspension, Cushing won't be able to play until December 3rd when Houston faces the Tennessee Titans on the road.
