Steelers Activate Martavis Bryant, Release Ventrone

As expected, the Steelers have activated WR Martavis Bryant to the 53 man roster this afternoon.

The Steelers had a roster exemption for Bryant who just finished his suspension for violating the NFL’s drug policy. The team had until 4:00 this afternoon to make a move on the 2nd year star receiver, and they took all the time they were given. Bryant only practiced with the team last Monday after coming back from Texas, and was ultimately kept out of the game in San Diego due to a minor knee injury.

To make room for the roster move, S Ross Ventrone has been released. Ventrone injured his hamstring during last night’s win over the Chargers. I imagine the special teams standout will back with the Steelers at some point in the not-too-distant future.
