A disastrous season for the Houston Texans added another dark chapter Monday.
Cornerback Bradley Roby announced Monday evening that he's been suspended for six games after testing positive for a banned substance, making him the second Texans' player of the day to be suspended for six games because of performance-enhancing drug use:
Earlier in the day, Will Fuller, the team's leading receiver, announced that he had been suspended for six games. Fuller can become a free agent after the 2020 season, so it's entirely possible that he'll never suit up for the Texans again.
The Texans actually blew the Detroit Lions out on Thanksgiving 41-25, improving to 4-7 on the season. In that game, though, Fuller had six catches for 176 yards and two touchdowns, while Roby started at cornerback for Romeo Crennel. Now, Deshaun Watson and company will be without both for the remainder of the 2020 season, with both Fuller and Roby's suspensions slated to last into the 2021 season.
