Fittipaldo relayed in a series of tweets a statement from GM Kevin Colbert.
“We are disappointed in Martavis’ actions that has led to his four game suspension. It is a disappointment to our entire organization as well as our fans, but we will continue to support Martavis during his suspension. It is very unfortunate his actions have put our team in this situation to begin the year, but we are confident he will learn from this mistake and return in excellent shape in Week 5.”
Bryant, suspended for violating the league’s substance abused policy, will return on October 12th when the Pittsburgh Steelers travel to take on the San Diego Chargers.
Darrius Heyward-Bey is expected to become the #3 WR in Bryant’s absence.
