Martavis Bryant reportedly close to being reinstated by NFL

Martavis Bryant cleared to practice, play in preseason

Martavis Bryant cleared to practice, play in preseason

For most of the AFC championship game, the Pittsburgh Steelers were without most of their optimal skill-position corps.

Bryant apparently has met all the conditions and is just waiting on paperwork and official word from the NFL. There's belief that this is a major step toward Bryant being able to play in Week 1.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant may be on the field at training camp very soon.

It appears Bryant is going to end up being reinstated, however, which means the Steelers could be getting close to seeing their offense at full force in the preseason.

According to general manager Kevin Colbert, in a statement posted on the team's website, Bryant "will continue to be evaluated as to his readiness to participate in regular season activities under the terms of his conditional reinstatement".

The Steelers are not big on investing in outside free agents, preferring instead to build through the draft and retain their core performers.

Bryant averaged 37 catches, 660 yards and seven touchdowns in his first two professional seasons.

The Steelers were hoping to have him on the field on Wednesday, but there have been hold ups in his reinstatement.
