According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, Bryant applied for reinstatement last week. He is currently suspended for multiple violations of the league's policy against substances of abuse.
Applying for reinstatement is just the first step, of course. The league does not have a definite timetable for solving these cases and it could be a while before we see Ben Roethlisberger's favorite No. 2 wide receiver hit the field. Bryant last played in a game on Jan. 3, 2016. The 25-year-old former fourth-round pick out of Clemson has yet to play more than 11 games in a season. This would have been his third year in the NFL.
