The Pittsburgh Steelers will resume their training camp practices Tuesday at Saint Vincent College in Latrobe and it appears as though wide receiver Martavis Bryant will be back on the field as well.
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Bryant, who has been sidelined following him needing a procedure on his elbow to clean up an infection, said Tuesday he will return to practice today. While he missed the Sunday night preseason opener against the Minnesota Vikings, Bryant was reportedly able to go through warm-ups with the team in Canton, Oh.
Martavis Bryant says he will return to practice today. Warmed up in canton before game.

If all goes well this week in practice, Bryant should be able to make his 2015 preseason debut Friday night against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Steelers sat their top four wide receivers against the Vikings Sunday night as Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Darrius Heyward-Bey were also held out.
In related news, safety Robert Golden told the media Tuesday that he’s getting better everyday after suffering a sprained knee in practice last week, according to Chris Bradford of the Beaver County Times. By the sound of things, he might be able to return to practice soon. However, being as the Steelers only have two practices this week, it will be surprising if he plays against the Jaguars.
The Steelers have been banged up at the safety position as well as Shamarko Thomas, Mike Mitchell and Ross Ventrone all sat out against the Vikings with minor injuries.
Golden says he feared for worst but has been getting better daily. His return is coach's decision #steelers
