The Sports Xchange

The Pittsburgh Steelers activated wide receiver Martavis Bryant and added him to the 53-man roster on Tuesday after he served a four-game suspension for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.

To make room on the roster, the Steelers waived safety Ross Ventrone.

As a rookie in 2014, Anderson led the NFL with a 21.1 yards-per-catch average. He had 26 receptions for 549 yards and eight touchdowns in 10 games.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that the 6-foot-4 Anderson injured a knee in his first practice after returning on Oct. 5.
