Texans ILB Brian Cushing told reporters on Wednesday that he takes full responsibility for the 10-game suspension he served this year.
“I should have communicated with the league better about it,” Cushing said, via Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle. “I take full responsibility for it. The encouraging thing is there are other guys in the league that are allowed to take this. … I hope they understand I had an issue I was trying to better myself with. As I’ve gotten older, there’s been a lot of things I’ve been worrisome about.
