View Full Profile is working with substance abuse couselor and former NBA coach John Lucas according to a report by the Houston Chronicle.
Bryant is currently serving a four-game suspension for a positive drug test for marijuana. If Bryant fails another test, he could receive a 10-game NFL suspension.
His current suspension is up in two weeks which means he could play as soon as Oct.12 at San Diego.
Steelers' head coach Mike Tomlin did not say very much about Bryant on Tuesday except for the following: "Rest assured we are doing what is appropriate under the circumstance."
Bryant had 26 catches for 549 yards and eight touchdowns in his rookie season (9 games). The eight touchdowns were tied for fourth-most among NFL rookies, and he was only the eighth Steeler's rookie to reach 500 yards.
At Clemson, Bryant had 61 receptions for 1,354 yards and 13 touchdowns along with a 17-yard carry and 291 yards on 14 kickoff returns in 1,020 snaps over 37 games (13 starts) in his career ... first in school history in yards per reception (22.2) and tied for 10th in receiving touchdowns.
Steelers actually should be applauded for getting Martavis Bryant help, as in treatment. That is why he has not been at their facility.— Ed Bouchette (@EdBouchette) September 22, 2015
Tomlin: Martavis Bryant not with the team and "that's all I'm going to say on it.''— Ed Bouchette (@EdBouchette) September 22, 2015
