Martavis Bryant Faces Year Long Suspension
Once again, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is facing suspension from the NFL. Bryant has reportedly violated the NFL's Substance Abuse Policy for the second time and faces a year-long suspension.
Bryant was suspended four games last season for violating the same substance abuse policy. The young wide receiver played 11 games following his suspension last season and totaled 50 receptions for 765 yards and six touchdowns.
The 24-year-old wide receiver is headed into his fourth season in the NFL. One of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger's top targets, should Bryant be suspended by the NFL, his absence would be a major blow to a team that has struggles with keeping players healthy over the past few seasons. Without Bryant, not only are the Steelers Super Bowl chances hurt, but so are their playoff chances. The Steelers may have to look for another weapon in the draft to replace Bryant, however, they may not know the wide receiver's fate by then.
Bryant plans to appeal his possible suspension and enter rehab.
