On Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers lost quarterback Ben Roethlisberger for an extended amount of time to a left knee injury but if it’s any consolation, they will likely get suspended wide receiver Martavis Bryant back for the Week 5 game against the San Diego Chargers.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Bryant has apparently returned to Pittsburgh to be with the team after spending the last three weeks in Houston undergoing counseling with John Lucas at his facility.
Rapoport went on to report that Bryant spent 9 hours a day in two different counseling sessions at the facility and that it helped him build structure while allowing him to also workout.
The Steelers can certainly use Bryant as a deep threat for back-up quarterback Michael Vick when he returns in Week 5. The second-year player was suspended for the first four games of the 2015 for violating the league’s substance abuse policy as a result of him testing positive for marijuana multiple times since he was drafted in the fourth-round of the 2014 NFL draft out of Clemson.
