Bryant (undisclosed) re-signed with the Lions on Tuesday, the Lions' official site reports. Originally drafted by the Browns in the seventh round, Bryant played 36 games with the team before joining the Lions via waivers during the 2016 season. He recorded five tackles, three sacks, and one forced fumble across five games with the club. He was ultimately placed on the IR due to an undisclosed injury. He figures to compete for a more solidified role providing depth at defensive end once training camp commences.
Bryant (undisclosed) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Bryant returned to the field Sunday against the Saints after serving a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy back in 2015. He played 27 snaps on defense but failed to record a single stat. He now heads to injured reserve, leaving the Lions with only five linebackers on the active roster.
Bryant (suspension) was activated to the Lions' active roster Saturday, The Detroit News reports. Bryant served a three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy back back in 2015. It's uncertain how much playing time he'll receive Sunday against the Lions.
Bryant will be suspended for three games as a result of violating the league's substance-abuse policy back in 2015, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports. The suspension is not a new infraction as Bryant won't be able to take the field again until Week 13, with the Lions bye week mixed in during that stretch. The reserve linebacker hasn't seen too much action on the defensive front this season, so his absence shouldn't have too much of an impact on the team.
Bryant was activated to the 53-man roster Saturday, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports. Bryant was released the Browns shortly after pleading to misdemeanor drug charges Wednesday. The Lions scooped him off waivers and will look for him to help out incase DeAndre Levy in unable to play in Week 5.
