Bryant Cleared To Practice, Play In Preseason; Full Reinstatement Pending
The Steelers and Martavis Bryant have 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.

As reminded readers, the reinstatement of Bryant, which occurred in April, authorized Bryant to participate in the offseason program and conditioned training camp and preseason participation on Bryant making appropriate clinical arrangements in Pittsburgh for ongoing drug treatment.

PFT's Mike Florio further noted, the league didn’t reinstate him before the start of camp, and no one seemed to have any details about what should have been a simple he-did-or-he-didn’t proposition.

Bryant last played in the 2015 postseason, with a minimum suspension of one year being imposed not long after the team’s season ended. Now we'll await word on his full reinstatement.
