Wide receiver Martavis Bryant might be looking at the equivalent of a redshirt in his first NFL season.
Bryant left the Steelers’ final preseason game early Thursday night with an A/C sprain in his shoulder, and the injury is expected to sideline the fourth-round pick for an extended period.
Depending on the severity of the injury, which is a separated shoulder, the Steelers could place Bryant on the short-term injured reserve list after he makes the 53-man roster.
Bryant was battling for snaps behind Antonio Brown, Markus Wheaton and Lance Moore.

Lance Moore takes over as the Steelers’ slot receiver from Jerricho Cotchery. That meant 46 receptions for 602 yards and 10 scores in 2013.
Moore doesn’t have the size of Cotchery, so he’s unlikely to get to 10 touchdowns. Antonio Brown is also the clear-cut No. 1 target in the Pittsburgh offense and there are plenty of other options.
Moore is going undrafted in many leagues, but he could wind up challenging Markus Wheaton and/or Heath Miller for receptions in Pittsburgh behind Antonio Brown. Just two seasons ago he had 65 catches for 1,041 yards and six scores in New Orleans. He could be a nice guy to stash away as a No. 5 receiver.
