Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is facing 4-game suspension for violating Substance Abuse Policy, per league sources. Suspension under appeal.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 27, 2015
If Bryant can't get the suspension overturned, the Steelers would be without one of their promising young players. If Bryant is out for four games, third-year pro Markus Wheaton and rookie Sammie Coates would be tasked with stepping up. The Steelers do have star WR Antonio Brown.
Pittsburgh is already without Le'Veon Bell for the first two games of the season.
More on this as the situation develops.
