Injury Martavis Bryant's status for Week 5 in doubt     -- Sat Oct 10 7:00 am --

Teaked knee may keep Steelers WR on sidelines
Steelers WR Martavis Bryant tweaked knee in practice Monday, per source. Contrary to other reports, this is why he'll likely be inactive. (Ross Jones on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Bryant's four-game suspension is over but it sounds like the Steelers may keep inactive for Monday's game against the Chargers. If Bryant sits, Markus Wheaton would maintain his role as the No.2 wide receiver.
Martavis Bryant facing four-game suspension     -- Thu Aug 27 2:40 pm --

Suspension under appeal
Steelers WR Martavis Bryant is facing 4-game suspension for violating Substance Abuse Policy, per league sources. Suspension under appeal. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Markus Wheaton has been running with the first team this preseason and know we know why. Bryant's early 5th-round ADP will certainly take a tumble in the coming days while Wheaton's 10-round ADP will be on the rise. The Steelers will be without Le'Veon Bell and Bryant to start the season.
Injury M. Bryant expected to miss Hall of Fame game     -- Sun Aug 2 7:40 pm --

Elbow infection will cause Steelers WR to miss a week to 10 days
Martavis Bryant had a procedure Sunday for an infection on his elbow that will likely cause the second-year wide receiver to miss the Hall of Fame preseason opener Sunday night against the Minnesota Vikings. Bryant is expected to be out about a week to 10 days after an ingrown hair became infected, causing his elbow to swell. Coach Mike Tomlin said Bryant “should be back to us sooner than later.” (Pittsburgh Post Gazette)

FF Today's Take: This situation shouldn't be a long-term issue. Bryant has been the second receiver taken in fantasy drafts but a recent quote from QB Ben Roethlisberger suggests Bryant has competition for snaps in two wide receiver sets from Markus Wheaton. Bryant's ADP is likely to slide in the coming week.
