Mike Tomlin rained down his punishment on a disgruntled Martavis Bryant, as he said he would, when they met Tuesday following the receiver's social media rant this past weekend.

There will be no fine forthcoming for Bryant, but the receiver said Wednesday that Tomlin told him he will not play this Sunday in Detroit.

"I'm not playing Sunday, which is fine," said Bryant, who also called off sick from work Monday for the fourth time in the past month. "I'm not tripping or nothing. It is what it is."
