INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Colts receiver LaVon Brazill has been suspended by the NFL for four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

Neither the Colts nor the league said what Brzill tested positive for. He will be eligible to return to the active roster following Indy's game Sept. 29 against Jacksonville, though he will be eligible to practice at training camp and will be able to play in all four preseason games.

A team spokesman said the team would not comment on the suspension.

As a rookie last season, Brazill had 11 receptions for 186 yards and one touchdown.

He was expected to compete with Nathan Palmer and Griff Whalen for the No. 4 receiver spot behind Pro Bowler Reggie Wayne, second-year receiver T.Y. Hilton and free agent signee Darrius Heyward-Bey.
