NFL suspends LaVon Brazill four games

It’s been a busy day for suspensions of wide receivers who violated the NFL’s Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

The NFL announced that Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill has been suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season. Brazill will be allowed to take part in training camp and preseason games before starting the suspension, which will end after the Colts play the Jaguars on September 29.

Brazill, a sixth-round pick in 2012, caught 11 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown during his rookie season. He was slated for a reserve role behind Reggie Wayne and Darrius Heyward-Bey this year, which will stretch the Colts’ depth in the first month of the season.

It shouldn’t stretch it to the point that the Colts offense really suffers, however. They have T.Y. Hilton as a third receiver and they’ll make good use of tight ends Dwayne Allen and Coby Fleener as well as newly signed running back Ahmad Bradshaw to make up for anything they might lose with Brazill out of the lineup.

Word of Brazill’s suspension comes on the heels of the news that Giants wide receiver Brandon Collins also earned a four-game suspension for running afoul of the substance-abuse policy.

    Richard Sherman maybe was right when he said half the league takes Adderall.

    You idiot, you don’t deserve to play for Gods gift to football, go back to Baltimorgue or whatever other hellish place you come from.

    He violated the Substance Abuse policy, not the PEDs policy. It was not for Adderrall, likely marijuana.

    hes like the 6th wr on depth chart, no big loss, griff whalen is more than capable to carry load that brazill wouldve, if brazill even makes the team now

    Dumb move on his part, but hopefully this motivates him to clean his act up. He will be missed as depth, but he was at best the 4th WR on the depth chart. Shouldn’t have too much of an effect.

    Now the Lions are interested in trading for him, any felonies on the horizon?

  12. hrmlss says: Jun 24, 2013 6:22 PM

  13. peytonsneck18 says: Jun 24, 2013 7:38 PM

    SA suspensions are typically 2-game for 1st time violators….aren’t they?

    From what I’ve heard we weren’t happy with his work ethic anyway.

    Meh, this is probably good news if your name is Griff Whalen, Lanear Sampson, Jabin Sambrano, Rodrik Rumble, Jeremy Kelley, or Nathan Palmer.

    But really, probably mostly Whalen. And then Kelley and Palmer.
