Bryant (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Mike Rodak of ESPN.com reports.
After being held out of Sunday's win over the Jaguars, the Bills decided to place the defensive tackle on IR, effectively ending his season. They also promoted defensive tackle DeAndre Coleman from the practice squad Tuesday. Additionally, expect Adolphus Washington and Jerel Worthy to see increased defensive snaps the remainder of the season. Bryant recorded 11 tackles in eight games with the Bills this season.
Bryant (shoulder) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.
Bryant won't suit up on Sunday despite being able to practice on a limited basis throughout the week. Adolphus Washington and Leger Douzable figure to see additional reps at defensive end with Bryant sidelined.
Odd, as you'd think such a practice schedule would have the veteran ready for at least a limited play count. Bryant's absence would have been more of an issue earlier this season, but with Marcell Dareus back and near 100 percent, Bryant's been reduced to more of a depth role anyhow.
Bryant (shoulder) was listed as a limited participant for Thursday's practice.
Bryant missed Sunday's win over the Bengals, but it appears he might he fit to play this week against Jacksonville. With Marcell Dareus back at full speed, Bryant might become more of a depth player the rest of the way, but he certainly has the ability to fill that role capably. This is the healthiest the Buffalo defense has looked in quite some time.
Bryant (shoulder) didn't practice for a third straight day Friday and has been ruled out for Sunday's game in Cincinnati.
The Bills will seemingly get Marcell Dareus back to take on much of the role Bryant's been playing, so this may not be as big of a loss for the defense as it would have been earlier in the season.
