  • Rapoport Report: Reinstatement Of Martavis Bryant Could Be Days Away

Two weeks into training camp, Martavis Bryant finally has been cleared to join his teammates for practices and games. But the fourth-year pro has still not been fully reinstated by the league.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have now inched a step closer to getting star receiver Martavis Bryant back for the regular season. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reports Bryant must continue to attend mandatory counseling sessions in order to be eligible for the regular season.

Suspended for the entire 2016 campaign after violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, Bryant has reportedly been cleared to return for preseason activities. He was conditionally reinstated in the spring, but had missed the team's first 11 practices at St. Vincent College in Latrobe.

In equities, Randgold Resources and Fresnillo, precious metals miners, gained 1.9% and 2%, respectively in London. Priceline Group slumped 6.5 percent after issuing a profit forecast that was weaker than analysts were expecting.


Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert said in a statement on July 27 the National Football League informed the team Bryant was "still in the process of being fully reinstated" and unable to participate in practice or preseason games.

Fantasy Impact This is outstanding news for the Steelers and, more so, Bryant. He particularly emerged as a weapon for Ben Roethlisberger in 2015, posting 50 receptions, 765 yards and 6 touchdowns despite missing the first four games.
