will undergo an elbow procedure to address an elbow infection according to mutiple reports.

Bryant landed on his elbow hard trying for a diving catch during Friday night's practice and had a thick wrap with ice on it afterwards.

He is expected to miss 7-10 days of training camp for the Steelers and likely miss the preseason hall-of-fame opener against the Minnesota Vikings. Bryant did not practice on Saturday.

"He should be back to us sooner rather than later," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said to ESPN. "But it will be a couple of days. Making sure that's behind him. ... He had a bump or something on his elbow and it kind of graduated to [surgery]. We just exercised a little caution and got it removed."

He had 26 catches for 549 yards (21.1 YPC) and eight touchdowns in his rookie season (9 games, started 3). The eight scores were tied for fourth-most among NFL rookies and he was only the eighth Steeler's rookie to reach 500 yards.

Markus Wheaton will get more snaps while Bryant is out of action.
