( big surprise ? )

Texans outside linebacker Brian Cushing’s four-game suspension for violating the National Football League’s performance-enhancing drug policy means he will miss the first four games of the 2010 regular season.

Cushing, the NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year last season when the Texans finished with a franchise-best 9-7 record, can practice with his teammates and play in preseason games, but he can’t be at their training facility once his suspension begins Sept. 4. He will miss games against Indianapolis, Washington, Dallas and Oakland.

“We’re very disappointed, and he’s disappointed, too,” Texans owner Bob McNair said Friday. “It was a surprise to us.

“Unfortunately, these things happen in the NFL. They’re like injuries in that you can never predict them.”

The league doesn’t disclose what a player tests positive for. Cushing could have tested positive for steroids, other performance-enhancing drugs, a diuretic or nutritional supplements that are banned by the NFL.

Cushing tested positive last year. Under league rules, players can appeal the laboratory finding or the penalty. Cushing appealed the laboratory finding and lost.

Cushing spent most of the offseason working out in Los Angeles while he completed his degree in sociology last month at USC. He has been participating in a mixed martial arts training program.
