Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant conditionally reinstated

Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant conditionally reinstated

Bryant (suspension) likely will be reinstated for practice and preseason games within the next couple days, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has officially been cleared by the National Football League to participate in all preseason games and practices, the team announced Wednesday. But it's not completely what the team and Bryant were hoping for.

The Steelers are now holding their final open training camp practice prior to traveling to NY for the 2017 preseason opener and that means they won't be back on the fields of Saint Vincent College until Sunday.

Bryant missed the entire 2016 season after violating the league's substance abuse policy, but was conditionally reinstated back in April. He was a true game-breaker in parts of two seasons with the Steelers. Recently, he has been working out on an auxiliary field during those sessions.

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said Wednesday that he has "no idea" when Bryant will be cleared.

On Friday for the annual night practice at Latrobe's Memorial Stadium, Bryant donned full pads and appeared as if he meant to practice before Colbert stopped him as he was walking to the field.
