RENTON, Wash. (AP) — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has been suspended indefinitely for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
The suspension was announced Wednesday and is the second in two seasons for Browner. He was suspended four games last season for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing substances.
Browner, who was injured in Week 10 against Atlanta and hasn’t played since, filed an appeal of the suspension while injured and the Seahawks were waiting for an answer from the league.
Browner is in his third season with the Seahawks. He started all 26 games he has played for the Seahawks and has 19 tackles, one interception and 10 passes defensed this season.
The suspension likely ends Browner’s time with the Seahawks. He will become a free agent after the season and could file for reinstatement after one year.
