Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant has officially been cleared by the NFL to participate in all preseason games and practices, the team announced Wednesday.
Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert released the following statement, via Pittsburgh’s team website.
“Martavis Bryant has been informed by the NFL that he is now permitted to participate in all preseason activities, including practices and games. He will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular-season activities under the terms of his conditional reinstatement.”
Bryant was conditionally reinstated in April following a year-long suspension and is now one step closer to full reinstatement. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that Bryant must continue to attend mandatory counseling sessions to gain full reinstatement ahead of the 2017 season.
The 6-foot-5, 200-pound receiver recorded 76 receptions for 1,314 yards and scored 14 touchdowns in his first two seasons in the NFL.
