Bryant could be reinstated to National Football League in near future

Steelers WR Martavis Bryant cleared for all preseason activities

Martavis Bryant cleared to participate in all preseason activites

The Steelers very much need to have Martavis Bryant on the field during the 2017 season.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has been cleared by the National Football League to begin practicing with the team and will be eligible to participate in all preseason games, including Friday's opener against the New York Giants.

The NFL on Wednesday informed all parties that Bryant can resume full activities with the Steelers immediately after satisfying the terms of his conditional reinstatement from four months ago.

There's a sense of patriotism among those who cite the island's history of Guam residents serving in the US military. Many across the island say they feel assured and protected by the military. "And not a lot of Americans know that".

Speaking to reporters Wednesday (via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette), Tomlin said he has "no idea" when Bryant will be cleared to practice by the NFL. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports Bryant must continue to attend mandatory counseling sessions in order to be eligible for the regular season.

Due to multiple violations of the NFL substance abuse policy Bryant has twice been suspended by the league. He particularly emerged as a weapon for Ben Roethlisberger in 2015, posting 50 receptions, 765 yards and 6 touchdowns despite missing the first four games.

Bryant figures to slot alongside Antonio Brown and give Pittsburgh perhaps the best 1-2 wide receiver punch in the AFC this year.
