View Full Profile could be active for the first time Sunday against the Browns. Bryant has not been active for any of the first five games with the Steelers (only 45 players dress).
LB Ryan Shazier (knee) and S Shamarko Thomas (hamstring) are doubtful for the game and it could make Bryant get on the field in some red zone situations. The Steelers have struggled some in the red zone forcing the ball to Antonio Brown so the activation of Bryant makes sense.
The fifth receiver that gets to dress from week to week is Darrius Heyward-Bey because of his contribution on special teams.
Bryant was drafted by the Steelers in the 4th round (118th overall).
For his college career, Bryant had 61 receptions for 1,354 yards with 13 receiving touchdowns and 291 yards on 14 kickoff returns. In the NFL preseason, he had six catches for 68 yards and a touchdown.
