Report: Steelers WR Martavis Bryant facing year-long suspension

Suspended for the first four games of last season, it appears that Pittsburgh Steelers third-year wide receiver Martavis Bryant could miss all of the 2016 NFL season.

Per Dejan Kovacevic of DKPittsburghSports.com, Bryant is facing a season-long suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

While he and his agent have filed an appeal, it's likely that Bryant will miss the entire 2016 season.

In 21 games through two seasons, Bryant has racked up 76 catches for 1,314 yards (17.29 Y/A) and 14 touchdowns in addition to 49 rushing yards and another score.

With Bryant suspended, Antonio Brown may see even more targets, but the biggest beneficiaries will be Markus Wheaton, Sammie Coates and Ladarius Green, who signed a four-year deal with the Steelers in free agency.
