Bryant (chest) has been placed on the injured reserve list and will sit out the entire season, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. Entering his eighth NFL season and fourth with the Browns, Bryant was a lock to start at defensive end after a 2015 campaign which saw him record a career-high and team-leading six sacks. The torn pectoral muscle he suffered earlier this month was originally thought to keep him out 4-to-6 months, making November the soonest possible return date. Rather than push his recovery in the hopes of a return the team decided it best to shut him down for the season. Carl Nassib appears first in line to replace Bryant, but John Hughes and Dylan Wynn could see some extra snaps as well.
Bryant is likely done for the season with a torn pectoral muscle, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Bryant's timetable for return is set at 4-to-6 months. Bryant led the Browns with six sacks, along with 24 solo tackles and nine assisted tackles. While Bryant is out, rookie Carl Nassib may be next in line to start at left defensive end.
Bryant had two solo tackles and one assisted tackle, including a sack and a stuff in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. Bryant has 15 total tackles on the season, along with two sacks and four stuffs. He may not be taking the league by storm, but he is a reliable and solid player on a struggling Browns team.
Bryant (shoulder) is active Sunday against the Broncos. Bryant was able to log 29 snaps Week 5 against Baltimore after sitting out back-to-back weeks, so he was fully expected to play in Week 6's home matchup against Denver. He should see plenty of work as a defensive end, but there are likely much safer IDP options out there.
Bryant (shoulder) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Ravens. Bryant has sat out back-to-back weeks, but will return to the field Sunday in what will presumably be a starting defensive end role. The seven-year pro has logged just four combined tackles so far this season.
