Seattle Seahawks cornerback Brandon Browner was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Wednesday for violating the league's substance abuse policy.The suspension 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. He's the second Seahawks player to be suspended for violating the substance abuse policy this season. Fellow cornerback Walter Thurmond is serving the final week of a four-game suspension.Browner, whose suspension is effective immediately and without pay, sent out a lengthy statement vowing that he would continue to fight his suspension and sounding resigned that his career with the Seahawks was over."I want to thank the Seahawks organization for the incredible opportunity they gave me when they took a chance on a player who was out of the NFL and playing in the CFL for 4 years," Browner wrote. "I also want to thank all of my teammates, coaches, trainers, staff and the 12's (fans) for their support, respect, and friendship and for helping me grow into the player, father, and person I am today. I have been treated with nothing but first class by everyone associated with the Seattle Seahawks and for that I am forever grateful."Although I disagree with the circumstances surrounding my suspension, I accept responsibility for all of my actions and I apologize for any that causes any unflattering reflections of my family and the Seahawks. I believe in my innocence and will continue to fight with all legal resources available to me to."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. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said earlier Wednesday before the suspension was announced that he was frustrated the process for making a determination on Browner's status had taken so long."It has taken a long time and I've been a little disappointed in that, but we're handling it," Carroll said.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 defenced this season. He was a Pro Bowl selection in 2011 when he had 23 passes defenced and six interceptions, but had not been able to match those numbers in the subsequent two seasons.Browner was to become a free agent after the season and could file for reinstatement after one year.News of the suspensions for both Browner and Thurmond came as the Seahawks were returning from their bye in late November. Browner is the seventh official suspension for a Seattle player for substance-abuse or performance-enhancing drugs violations by the league since 2011. That doesn't include Richard Sherman, whose suspension was overturned on appeal late last season.The two suspensions have given chances to backups Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane. They have played well enough that it was not guaranteed Thurmond or Browner would get their starting spots back when they returned.

It is still early in the casting process. Warner Bros. hasn't made a formal offer to the actor just yet, and its unclear if he will be willing to accept, as Joaquin Phoenix has made it known that he has no interest in appearing in big budget studio fare. He has sought in recent years to build a career on movies that feel 'more prestigious'.The actor has recently been offered the lead in Gus Van Sant's next movie, Sea of Trees, though he has not accepted that role at this time.Warner Bros. has no comment at this time.While the actor is being linked to Lex Luthor, Jason Momoa and Callan Mulvey have also reportedly been eyed for the role.

Doomsday is another villain that has been mentioned for Batman Vs. Superman.Nothing is confirmed in regards to which villains will appear in the movie. We only have speculation to go on at this time. Do you think Joaquin Phoenix is a good fit for Lex Luthor?Batman Vs.

Kemba Walker is starting to heat up for the Charlotte Bobcats and looking nothing like the player that faced the Toronto Raptors last month.Walker and the Bobcats go on the road Wednesday night to face a new-look Raptors team that is gaining in confidence.The third-year guard has scored 24 points in consecutive games, helping Charlotte (11-14) end a three-game skid with Tuesday's 95-87 home win over Sacramento. He's averaging 20.4 points over the last eight contests.''I've been working hard since this summer,'' Walker said. ''I've put in a lot of time."I started off slow shooting the basketball (this season), but hopefully now I can hit a groove. I've been feeling great and I've been shooting a lot.''One of those efforts when he started the season slow was a five-point performance on 2-of-13 shooting in a 92-90 victory over Toronto (9-13) on Nov. 6. Gerald Henderson picked up the slack with a team-high 23 points.The Raptors were a different team then before last week's trade that sent Rudy Gay to the Kings with Patrick Patterson, Chuck Hayes, John Salmons and Greivis Vasquez joining Toronto.Toronto is 2-1 since that deal, winning for the third time in four games Saturday with a 99-77 victory at Chicago. It marked the Raptors' best defensive effort in terms of points allowed and opponent field-goal percentage (36.0%)."I've seen some good things growing, confidence growing a little bit," Raptors head coach Dwane Casey said. "The ball movement has been good [and] our defence has been solid, not great."Hayes has not seen action yet and could make his Toronto debut Wednesday."We'll see where he is," Casey said. "Right now, Patrick and our other guys, Amir [Johnson] is playing pretty well, JV [Jonas Valanciunas] is playing pretty solid, so he's going to have to bring a lot to the table because there's so many guys."Terrence Ross has become a starter since the trade, with the second-year swingman averaging 15.7 points in the three games."You just have to be more focused, you just have to be dialed in," he said. "It's a lot more that you have to deal with and it's a lot more that you have to go and prepare that you have to take on."Casey has lauded the newcomers for providing toughness to the club. All have began their Toronto careers as reserves with Patterson and Vasquez combining for 36 points in their first two games - both victories for the Raptors."For myself personally, I want to bring energy, toughness and new focus to this team and just keep sharing the ball," Patterson said.The Bobcats uncharacteristically shot well from long range Tuesday, making 8 of 17 three-pointers with Walker connecting four times. Charlotte is last in the league in that department at 29.7 percent.''It makes us tough to guard,'' Henderson said. ''You have to come out there and guard the three-point line with guys that can get to the basket, so it's a tough thing. If we're knocking down the 3-ball that opens up a lot for us.''Charlotte has dropped its last three visits to Toronto.
