( - Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner has reportedly violated the league's substance-abuse policy and is facing a one- year suspension.

The report from on Monday came less than a year after Browner was suspended for four games for violating the NFL's policy against performance- enhancing substances.

Browner served that ban and returned for last season's playoffs, but, citing union sources, reports the Oregon State product is facing a one-year suspension this time around.

On Sunday, it was reported another Seahawks cornerback, Walter Thurmond, would begin serving a four-game suspension for violating the drug policy.

Browner, whose contract expires at the end of the season, sat out Seattle's last game and was expected to miss a significant amount of time due to a groin injury. He has one interception and 19 tackles in eight games this season.
