PITTSBURGH (AP) Martavis Bryant's yearlong suspension is over.

The NFL conditionally reinstated the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver on Tuesday, clearing the way for the talented but enigmatic Bryant to return to the team to prepare for the 2017 season. The league suspended Bryant in March 2016 for a second violation of its substance abuse policy.

Bryant may work out at the team's training facility and attend meetings. He won't be allowed to participate in all preseason activities - including games and practices - until the league has confirmed that Bryant has set up "clinical resources" in Pittsburgh. The league will review Bryant's progress at the end of the preseason before making a determination on his availability going forward.

Joseph: Broncos QB 'open competition'

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) If comfort is any factor in the Denver Broncos' "50-50" quarterback competition, Trevor Siemian and Paxton Lynch were, appropriately, tied after Day 1.
