LaVon Brazill WR IND 5 Months
Brazill, who is currently playing for the Toronto Argonauts in the CFL, had his 16-game suspension from the NFL reduced to ten games as a result of the new drug policy agreement between the NFL and NFL players association, NFL.com report.
Brazill was released by the Colts in July after his suspension was issued. The report says his agent is working on a release from his CFL contract when the Argos' season ends in November, but it still seems like a long shot he'll have a significant role in the NFL again.

Ex-Colts WR LaVon Brazill passed through waivers unclaimed.
Suspended for at least all of 2014, Brazill is now officially a free agent. He won't find a new home this season. Brazill's sixth-round pedigree coupled with his off-the-field woes means his phone won't be ringing off the hook when/if he's eventually reinstated.

Colts waived WR LaVon Brazill.
A sixth-round pick in the 2012 draft, Brazill flashed on the field during two seasons with the Colts, but was suspended twice, including a full-year ban for violating the league's substance abuse policy in early July. He won't be eligible to play this season, even in the unlikely event he's claimed on waivers. Brazill, 25, has 23 catches for 347 yards (15.1 YPR) and three touchdowns through 25 NFL appearances. He scored two TDs in Indy's January playoff loss to the Patriots.

NFL suspended Colts WR LaVon Brazill for at least one season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Brazill was suspended the first four games of 2013 for the same offense. Brazill was unlikely to make an offensive impact for the Colts this season, but his steady contributions on special teams will be missed. The door is now open for Griff Whalen to grab a roster spot this preseason.

LaVon Brazill caught two passes for 73 yards in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots.
Running as the Colts' No. 2 outside receiver opposite T.Y. Hilton, Brazill drew seven targets. Two of them resulted in Andrew Luck picks, one of which was Brazill's fault. The second-year wideout ran the wrong route. Ideally, Brazill wouldn't open 2014 higher than No. 4 on the depth chart. His status will depend on Reggie Wayne's (knee) health and what the Colts do in the draft/free agency. The presence of Andrew Luck makes Brazill worth keeping around in Dynasty leagues, but he's a middling option.

LaVon Brazill caught four passes for 54 yards in Indianapolis' Wild Card win over the Chiefs.
Running as the Colts' No. 2 receiver, Brazill also committed a brutal drop. Brazill has been better than Darrius Heyward-Bey was as Indy's No. 2 wideout, but is going to have to step up in the Divisional Round with the Broncos/Patriots likely to bracket a white-hot T.Y. Hilton. He's a boom-or-bust daily-league option.

LaVon Brazill caught one pass for 11 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over Jacksonville.
Brazill returned from a one-month suspension to appear in ten of the Colts' final 11 games, compiling a 12-161-2 line as a receiver. He will likely be Indy's fourth wideout in the playoffs, behind T.Y. Hilton, Da'Rick Rogers, and Griff Whalen.

LaVon Brazill was held without a catch in Week 16 against the Chiefs.
Brazill dropped his lone target. He burned Brandon Flowers deep, and Andrew Luck dropped a perfect ball in for his receiver. But Brazill dropped what would have been a 47-yard touchdown. He's the No. 4 receiver for the Colts.

Brazill practiced in full this week and will return after missing just one game. He broke out for 53 yards and two touchdowns prior to going down in Week 14 and should continue to get the majority of snaps in three-wide sets with T.Y. Hilton and Da'Rick Rogers.
