Martavis Bryant was back working with the first-team offense Monday when the Steelers resumed practice after a four-day break on their bye.
The issue is whether the embattled wide receiver will be in that same spot Sunday when the Steelers open the second half of their season at the Indianapolis Colts.
After being benched against the Detroit Lions on Oct. 29 because of his controversial social media posts, Bryant is looking for a chance to rejoin his teammates on the field. He has been given no indication the benching will extend past that one game.
“I'm pretty sure I'm going to be out there,” Bryant said. “It's a long week. It's only Monday. I'll come back in here Wednesday, get the game plan and go from there.”

It appears Bryant is looking to make a fresh start, but that remains to be seen. He'll remain risky for fantasy lineups until he shows more. Smith-Schuster still appears to be a safer play.
