Steelers Rookie WR Martavis Bryant Back Practicing Monday

After sitting out Sunday’s practice with an injured groin, Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver Martavis Bryant (groin) is back practicing again on Monday.

While Bryant’s injury appears to have been minor, you never like to see rookies miss practice time. The Steelers fourth-round draft pick is a virtual lock to make the roster this year and the team hopes at some point they can at least use him situationally in 2014. Because of his size, Bryant could develop into a good red zone target during his rookie season with an eye on becoming a full-time contributor in 2015..

According to Alex Kozora, rookie wide receiver C.J. Goodwin (shoulder) is sidelined on Monday after falling hard on his shoulder during Sunday’s practice. Also not practicing on Monday are center David Snow (foot), running back Le’Veon Bell (hamstring), safety Mike Mitchell (PUP- groin) and running back Alvester Alexander  (PUP- groin).
