INDIANAPOLIS – Once again, LaVon Brazill has run into trouble with the NFL when it comes to the league’s policy for substances of abuse.

On Thursday the team confirmed that the receiver has been suspended for an entire season for violating the league’s Policy and Program for substances of abuse.

The news was first reported by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network via Twitter.

Here’s a look back at LaVon Brazill at training camp in 2013 and his “money or marijuana” statement. It was then that he vowed to change his ways and lay off smoking marijuana, which he admitted triggered the suspension.

Head coach Chuck Pagano and the organization stuck by Brazill through training camp and kept him on the roster for the start of the season. Brazill returned to the Colts and caught 12 passes during the regular season for 161 yards and a pair of touchdowns against the Bengals on December 8th.

Brazill had a strong playoffs for the Colts as he caught six passes in two games for 127 yards and two touchdowns-both in the Colts’ Divisional playoff loss to the Patriots in Foxbourough.

The Colts selected Brazill in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL draft out of Ohio University. In his first season with the Colts he caught 11 passes for 186 yards and a touchdown against the Lions on December 2nd in the fourth quarter which sparked a Colts’ comeback victory in Detroit.
