Martavis Bryant suspended indefinitely for violating substance abuse policy
Martavis Bryant’s NFL career is hanging in the balance after being suspended once again for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
Bryant was hit with an indefinite suspension for violating the terms of reinstatement regarding his previous suspension.
#Raiders WR Martavis Bryant was finally suspended — again. He is back on the suspended list indefinitely for violating the terms of his reinstatement. More violations of the Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

This is Bryant’s third suspension. He played 2018 with the Oakland Raiders on appeal, but that appeal has fallen short. The 26-year-old is facing perhaps a year on the sidelines, if not longer, as a result of this violation. With it being his third substance abuse suspension since entering the NFL in 2014, the chances of leniency are pretty much out the window.
