News broke of Bryant’s 4 game suspension last week. The 2nd year receiver was suspended after reportedly testing positive for marijuana multiple times. Kevin Colbert made a statement regarding his suspension today.
“We are disappointed in Martavis’ actions that has led to his four game suspension. It is a disappointment to our entire organization as well as our fans, but we will continue to support Martavis during his suspension.
“It is very unfortunate his actions have put our team in this situation to begin the year, but we are confident he will learn from his mistake and return in excellent shape in week 5.”
