There is no specific timeline for the reinstatement of Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Martavis Bryant, an NFL spokesperson told Chris Bradford of The Beaver County Times.

The statement refutes a report from the newspaper suggesting Bryant’s reinstatement from a one-year ban for multiple drug violations is imminent.

The NFL’s statement doesn’t necessarily mean Bryant’s return isn’t imminent. Assuming Bryant has kept his nose clean since being suspended, he almost certainly will be reinstated before the season begins.
