Martavis Bryant has minor procedure on elbow

Tribune Review - [Full Article]

Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant underwent a minor procedure on his right elbow Sunday that will likely keep him out of next week's Hall of Fame Game against the Vikings.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he wouldn't classify the Bryant's ailment as an injury.

“He had a bump or something on his elbow and it graduated to that. We just exercised a little caution and got it removed.” Tomlin said he doesn't expect Bryant to miss much time.

Fantasy Impact: 

This story comes after Ben Roethlisberger's comments that he expected WR Markus Wheaton to start on the outside in two-receiver sets, this season, not Bryant. It's a shock to many and some speculated it was because of Bryant's elbow. It doesn't look like Bryant is going to miss much time here. He's also proved to be the more talented receiver after putting up solid fantasy numbers in a limited number of snaps in 2014. This is something to watch through camp and in the preseason. We have Bryant ranked 18th among our WRs this year.
