Colts just keep playing

(Continued)

Brazill returns -- Wide receiver LaVon Brazill returns to the active roster this week after sitting out the first four games of the season. Brazill had been suspended for violations of the NFL’s substance abuse program. Indianapolis doesn’t have to make a roster move in order to create room for the talented second-year receiver.

“We don’t have to do anything. He’s back to practice but he’s exempt coming off the suspension, so you get to practice him for a week and you don’t have to do anything. You get an exemption,” the Colts coach explained. “We don’t have to do anything so that’s the beauty of the deal. He’s been here under his suspension. He’s been here the whole time. Only thing he couldn’t do is practice. But he could meet, lift in the weight room and do all those kind of things. Run on his own. Couldn’t do anything with the team. So he stayed in it mentally so now we get the luxury of bringing him back out and letting him practice now.”

No decision has been made as to whether Brazill will play against the Seahawks later this week.

“We’ll throw him back out there at practice this week. We’ve got guys to get ready for Seattle. We’ll see where he’s at from a mental standpoint. We’ll see where he’s at from a physical standpoint this week during practice. Again, we have the luxury. We don’t have to make any decisions for a while. So we’ll get to see where he’s at,” Pagano said. “Certainly you can look back at what he did last year. We know what type of receiver he is. He’s got big-play potential. He made the big play against Detroit I think it was at the end of that game. We don’t get back in that game. He’s certainly got the ability to make big plays in the pass game. He was an excellent special-teamer if I recall right running down on kicks and things like that. We’ll just have to wait and see.”
