AP could strip Cushing of DROY award

Paul Kuharsky is currently in the air and on his way to ESPN headquarters, but AFC East blogger Tim Graham has the story on how the Associated Press is considering taking away Brian Cushing's defensive rookie of the year award for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances. From Graham's post:

Asked if Cushing could be stripped, AP reporter Barry Wilner, who oversees balloting for the wire service's annual NFL awards, told [Graham] in an e-mail "we are looking into it." Wilner didn't elaborate on what would happen if the AP did strip Cushing.

Look for Paul to weigh in on Cushing possibly losing the award once he's back on terra firma.
