Vonta Leach: Brian Cushing “always juiced”

Former Houston Texans’ fullback Vonta Leach isn’t surprised about Brian Cushing’s suspension.

It was quite a surprise when news broke on Wednesday that Houston Texans’ starting linebacker Brian Cushing has been suspended for 10 games after violating the NFL’s performance enhancing drug policy.

Cushing was handed such a hefty suspension because this is his second violation.

One person who isn’t surprised by Cushing’s suspension is former Texans’ fullback Vonta Leach who says he’s “always juiced.”

Leach posted the Tweet on Wednesday night, but then deleted it. I managed to get a screen shot.

It’s not like Leach told us something that we didn’t already know. There has been talk for years of Cushing allegedly juicing.

Leach clearly regretted posting it, but he should of thought twice before putting it on Twitter because someone will always get a screen shot before it’s deleted.

My guess is that Leach doesn’t have a great friendship with Cushing, but then again Cushing hated to see him go in 2011.

Texans’ week two inactives already out.

NFL teams usually announce who will be inactive for a game about an hour before kickoff. The Texans released theirs on Wednesday, ahead of Thursday night’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

This isn’t a surprise since so many of Houston’s players went down with injuries this past Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Texans also placed starting tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz on season-ending injured reserve after suffering his second concussion over the course of the past month.
