The Oakland Raiders may have to wait to see the debut of Martavis Bryant.

The talented but troubled wideout who was acquired in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers in April may be facing another suspension related to the league's substance abuse policy, according to a report by Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Team officials would not comment but did confirm they are waiting to hear from the league on the matter.

Bryant was previously suspended for the first four games of the 2015 season and all of 2016 because of substance abuse violations. The Raiders gave up a third-round pick (79th overall) during the draft to acquire the receiver out of Clemson.

Bryant registered 50 catches for 603 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games last season. His best year came in 2015 when he hauled in 50 passes for 765 yards with six touchdowns over 11 games.
