NFL clears Martavis Bryant for preseason participation

by - Staff Writer -

Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert announced Wednesday night the NFL has cleared former Clemson receiver Martavis Bryant for preseason action, including practices and games.

Bryant is coming off of a year-long suspension for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy.

The T.L. Hanna product was conditionally reinstated in April to the point where he could participate in meetings, conditioning, and other work at the Steelers training facility, but he couldn't participate in preseason camp or games.

Colbert's full statement was the following:

"Martavis Bryant has been informed by the NFL that he is now permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games," the statement read. "He will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular-season activities under the terms of his conditional reinstatement."

Bryant was a fourth-round draft pick in 2014. In and around two suspensions, he's totaled 76 catches for 1,314 yards and 14 touchdowns.
