After a 10- game ban, the Houston Texans linebacker is returning to the game.  Is it too late or will he help bring a win for the team?

Yesterday, Cushing spoke to the media for the first time saying that the banned substance was “substance intended to help mental health issues” and was not the drug Adderall.

Cushing said, “There was a good amount of things bothering me in this past offseaso, most mentally. I was given a prescription medication that I probably should have been more careful with and communicated with the league better about.”
“You build your entire career back up,” Cushing said. “There’s a massive range of things you can test positive for. It’s extremely frustrating. I’ve been tested hundreds of times during my career. For it to happen again, I should have communicated with the league.”
The Texans have a some difficult games ahead wirh the Jaguars and Steelers.
