According to CBS Sports, Oakland Raiders wide-receiver Martavis Bryant has been suspended by the NFL indefinitely for violating terms of reinstatement under the Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.

The NFL made the announcement Friday, CBS Sports reports.

Bryant was drafted in the 4th round by the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2014. However, Bryant would struggle with substance abuse during his time.

Bryant was suspended the first four games of the 2015 season, and he would go on to sit all the entire 2016 campaign. 

Bryant was reinstated in 2017, but the Steelers ultimately traded him to Oakland for a third-round pick in the 2018 NFL draft.
