Former Colts WR LaVon Brazill worked out for the Chiefs on Thursday.
Duron Carter, Joe Morgan and Da'Rick Rogers also worked out. Kansas City signed Rogers afterward. Brazill was suspended for "at least" 2014 after violating the league's substance-abuse policy. He is likely to be reinstated before the 2015 season, and will hope to catch on as a sub-package wideout. Sat, Jan 10, 2015 09:38:00 AM

Suspended free agent WR LaVon Brazill has signed with the CFL's Toronto Argonauts.

After repeated violations of the league's substance abuse policy, Brazill was suspended for at least all of the 2014 season. The former Colt will stay involved with football and probably hope to catch on with an NFL team in 2015.

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.

A multiple offender, 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 Brazill ban opens the door for Da'Rick Rogers and rookie Donte Moncrief to battle for playing time behind T.Y. Hilton, Reggie Wayne, and Hakeem Nicks.

LaVon Brazill caught two passes for 73 yards in Indianapolis' Divisional Round loss to the Patriots, with both catches going for touchdowns.

Brazill notched scores of 38 and 35 yards, roasting Alfonzo Dennard on the first. 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.
Sun, Dec 22, 2013 06:48:00 PM

LaVon Brazill (foot) is listed as probable for Week 16.

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.
Sat, Dec 21, 2013 10:25:00 PM

LaVon Brazill (foot) is practicing in full for Week 16.

Brazill was held out last week with a foot injury. His return to practice puts him on track to play Sunday against the Chiefs. Brazill will work in three-wide sets with T.Y. Hilton and Da'Rick Rogers.
Wed, Dec 18, 2013 01:52:00 PM

Colts coach Chuck Pagano expects WR LaVon Brazill (foot) to resume practicing on Wednesday.

Brazill was listed as "questionable" for Week 15 even though he didn't get in a single practice, so a Wednesday return would put him on track to suit up against the Chiefs. Brazill wouldn't be more than a desperation WR4 for the fantasy finals as the Colts' No. 3 receiver.
Mon, Dec 16, 2013 04:20:00 PM

LaVon Brazill (foot) is inactive for Week 15 against the Texans.

Brazill thought he'd be able to go, but missing Friday's practice killed his odds of suiting up. Second-year players rarely play after a week of "DNPs." Brazill's absence should mean a few more looks for Da'Rick Rogers, who enters the fantasy semifinals as a high-upside WR.4 Also inactive for the Colts are CB, Greg Toler, C Samson Satele, DE Ricky Jean Francois, G/T Jeff Linkenbach, FB Stanley Havili and LB Pat Angerer. Angerer is a healthy scratch.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 11:40:00 AM

LaVon Brazill (foot) is listed as questionable for Week 15 despite not turning in a single practice this week.

He's shaping up as a game-time decision returning from a two-touchdown game against Cincinnati. Because Brazill is such a young player -- he's in his second year and missed the first four games 2013 due to suspension -- it's possible the Colts' coaching staff will hold him out Sunday simply because he didn't practice. Brazill, however, has been outwardly optimistic. We'd avoid leaning on Brazill in fantasy WR3 slots against Houston.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 01:06:00 PM

LaVon Brazill (foot) remained absent at Friday's practice.

Brazill hasn't practiced at all this week and has his foot in a boot. He still expects to play Sunday against the Texans. We'll see. If active, Brazill will work in three-wide sets with T.Y. Hilton and Da'Rick Rogers.
