The Houston Texans will need to find someone to replace Max Bullough for the start of the upcoming season.

Texans’ reserve inside linebacker Max Bullough received some bad news on Thursday.

The NFL announced on Thursday that Bullough has been suspended for the first four games of the upcoming NFL season for violating the league’s performance enhancing drug policy.

The 25 year-old Bullough has been with the Texans since 2014 when he went undrafted out of Michigan State. He has a total of 56 tackles during his NFL career so far.

Bullough being suspended won’t affect the Texans’ defense since he’s not a starter, but it could have a negative impact on their special teams. He did start three games for Houston last season.

Bullough will be able to participate in the Texans’ offeseason program, mini camps as well as training camp and the preseason.  His suspension will end on October 2nd.  A day after Houston plays the Tennessee Titans.

Bullough has released a statement.

With Bullough not being an impact player, there’s always a chance another linebacker that the Texans brought in this offseason could take his job.  I’m sure Houston wouldn’t mind that given his four game suspension.
