Bryant was limited in practice this week with an unspecified ankle injury. If he's able to give it a go, he'll likely enjoy another start at defensive tackle, as Marcell Dareus (hamstring) is considered doubtful to play.
Bryant is going to lose his starter's minutes as soon as Marcell Dareus is ready to return from a hamstring injury, though it doesn't appear as if Dareus is ready to roll for Week 6. Bryant has a modest nine tackles and zero sacks through five games so far, so he's mostly just a lane-clogger even though the Bills like his style of play.
Jerel Worthy might also get some time in certain packages, but Bryant did a nice job for the Bills last season when Kyle Williams was injured. While he's not ideal for the team's switch to a more dedicated 3-4 defense, he does have the ability to accrue tackles for an interior lineman if you can do without the sacks. Last season, Bryant logged 45 stops while playing only 58 percent of the defensive snaps.
With Kyle Williams expected to miss to miss the rest of the season with a knee injury, Corbin Bryant is in line for more playing time.
Bryant logged 45 defensive plays Monday against the Patriots - logging two total tackles - and stands to play even more this week in Kansas City with Alex Carrington being needed to sub in for an injured Mario Williams. Bryant is still looking for his first sack of the season and the true IDP plays on this line are Marcell Dareus and Jerry Hughes. But we'll at least keep an eye on Bryant should the Buffalo Bills remain down two of their defensive line starters, as the coaching staff seems happy with Bryant's play.
