The NFL announced Wednesday that Panthers WR Ventell Bryant has been suspended without pay for the first two games of the 2021 regular season for violating the NFL’s Substances of Abuse policy.
Bryant will be able to participate in all preseason practices and games and is eligible to return to the Panthers’ active roster on Monday, Sept. 20, following the team’s Week 2 game against the Saints.
Bryant, 24, wound up going undrafted out of Temple back in 2019. He later signed a rookie contract with the Bengals but was waived a few months later.
From there, Bryant signed on with the Cowboys, but was waived in October of last year. He eventually caught on with the Panthers and returned to Carolina this past January on a futures contract.
In 2019, Bryant appeared in 12 games for the Cowboys and caught one pass for 15 yards receiving and a touchdown.
