LATROBE, Pa. — Martavis Bryant can practice with and play for the Pittsburgh Steelers, according to a statement from Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert released Wednesday night.
Bryant was conditionally reinstated by the NFL from a yearlong marijuana suspension in April. He practiced with the Steelers at organized team activities (OTAs) and minicamp in May and June.
On the opening day of Steelers camp, July 27, the team announced it had been informed by the NFL that the conditions of Bryant’s reinstatement barred him from practicing and playing in the preseason.
Bryant has worked on routes and conditioning with team staff, Sammie Coates and by himself in camp.
The Steelers completed their last open practice before Friday’s preseason opener against the New York Giants two hours before Wednesday night’s statement was released.
