Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner said via Twitter he has been reinstated by the NFL.

Browner, 29, was suspended indefinitely in December for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. At the time that Browner was suspended, he was sitting out with a groin injury.

Just last week, Browner had planned to sue the NFL, challenging the league’s decision to suspend him. He is set to become a free agent next week.

In 2012, he served a four-game suspension for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy last year. That suspension was separate from the league’s substance-abuse program.
