Wide receiver Martavis Bryant watched the Pittsburgh Steelers’ last game from the sideline. On Sunday, Bryant will be on the field.
Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed on Tuesday that Bryant is in Pittsburgh’s Week 10 game plan.
“I’m comfortable with (his) trajectory,” Tomlin said on Tuesday as the Steelers prepare for the Indianapolis Colts, per Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.
Bryant was suspended in Week 8 for disciplinary reasons stemming from his public frustration over lack of opportunity on offense. He’s made it well know that he’s unhappy with his diminishing role on offense with the Steelers. To make matters worse, he’s seen rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster shine this year.
Tomlin and the Steelers are hopeful that Bryant is ready to let his play do the talking. The Steelers coach said Bryant’s had a “good attitude” since being in street clothes in Week 8.
Entering Week 10, Bryant is fifth on the team in receptions with 18. We know he would like to third behind Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Unfortunately for Bryant, there’s only one football in Pittsburgh. With the emergence of Smith-Schuster, along with primary options Brown and Bell, Bryant’s production level probably won’t increase much.
