Steelers' Martavis Bryant facing year-long suspension
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant is facing a year-long suspension for violating the NFL substance-abuse policy for multiple new violations following a previous suspension from the league, according to league sources. He's currently planning to appeal the suspension. Bryant missed several scheduled drug tests, which is the same as a positive drug test. This is a huge blow to Bryant and the Steelers. He's one of the top young receivers in the game. During a previous four-game suspension stemming from a positive drug test for marijuana, Bryant spent time in Houston working with noted counselor and former NBA coach and player John Lucas, according to sources with knowledge of the situation not authorized to speak publicly.
