Indianapolis Colts wide receiver LaVon Brazill will miss the entire NFL season for violating the league's substance abuse policy, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Brazill was suspended four games for violating NFL rules regarding substance abuse in 2013, but returned to the team to appear in 10 games, with 12 receptions and two touchdowns.

The news came on Thursday afternoon, with the league also announcing four-game suspensions of Miami Dolphins defensive end Dion Jordan for using performance enhancing drugs and Kansas City Chiefs reserve offensive lineman Rokevious Watkins for violating the substance abuse policy.

Recent reports have indicated the league would be willing to lessen the penalties for substance abuse violations in exchange for the players union agreeing to a testing protocol for human growth hormone.
