Late on Saturday most fans of the Pittsburgh Steelers received some sort of update on their devices notifying them of Martavis Bryant being a late addition to the team’s injury report due to an illness.

He was officially labeled as “Questionable”, but as of Sunday morning, sources are suggesting Bryant will be in the lineup for the Steelers when they host the Jaguars at Heinz Field in Week 5.

Per ESPN:

“Despite being listed as questionable because of an illness, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant will play Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, a source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.”

This is good news for the Steelers, who are looking to improve their record to 4-1 by beating the 2-2 Jaguars, but will likely equate to another wide receiver, either Eli Rogers or Justin Hunter, heading to the inactive list.

As for the Jaguars injury report, it is also being reported the Jags will have Marquise Lee at their disposal in Week 5:

“Also listed as questionable due to a rib injury, Jaguars receiver Marqise Lee is slated to play Sunday against Pittsburgh, a source said.

Lee did some work Friday, after not having practiced since suffering the injury during Sunday's loss to the New York Jets.”
