The Pittsburgh Steelers second year WR Martavis Bryant left Organized Team Activities (OTAs) Thursday on a cart after reportedly becoming ill after taking a supplement. Per Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, the wide out seemed fine.

Meanwhile, Dejan Kovacevic of DKonPittsburghSports.com states Bryant's injury looked much worse than what is being reported from camp. Kovacevic cites Bryant falling hard and seeming to grasp his shoulder throughout the process.

This is not to insinuate the Steelers are trying to cover up a possible injury, but crazier things have happened on every team across the NFL landscape. If Bryant is in fact injured, and not just ill from taking a supplement, fans will know next week when the Steelers report to Mandatory Minicamp on Tuesday.

The Steelers will practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and then have off until they report to training camp July 25th at St. Vincent College in Latrobe, PA.
