Report: Martavis Bryant Facing 4 Game Suspension

According to Adam Schefter, Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is facing a four game suspension for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy. He will appeal the suspension.

In 10 games last season Bryant caught 26 passes gaining 549 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2014, he averaged 21.1 yards per catch. The Steelers planned to utilize the ’14 4th round pick a lot more this season. The team is already starting the season without Le’Veon Bell and Maurkice Pouncey. Bell and Bryant accounted for 19 of the team’s touchdowns last season.

To draw a four game suspension, a player would have to fail 3 drug tests, or, have failed two tests and been deemed to not be following the corrective measures set forth by the league under the substance abuse policy.
