  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Saves best game for playoffs

    Bryant caught four of six targets for 64 yards in Saturday's 45-14 wild-card playoff loss to Houston.

    Bryant had his best game of the season in the playoff loss, nearly equaling the receiving yards he had in 17 regular-season games. The tight end recorded 13 catches on 20 targets for 81 yards and three touchdowns in 2023. This was the season that starter David Njoku made an evolutionary leap, which rendered Bryant to career lows in catches, targets and yards while fighting for tight end scraps with Jordan Akins. Bryant enters the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, but his organizational and system knowledge could be useful to a team that is still in its competitive window.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Likely to start Week 18

    Bryant was spotted warming up as Cleveland's starting tight end ahead of Sunday's game against the Bengals, Zac Jackson of The Athletic reports.

    Though top tight end David Njoku is active for the contest, he and several other Browns starters are expected to be rested for all or most of the Week 18 contest while Cleveland is already locked in as the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs. Given that Njoku wasn't warming up with the first-team offense, he looks like he's being viewed as more of an emergency option Sunday while Bryant and Jordan Akins play nearly all the snaps at tight end. Through 16 games this season, Bryant has recorded 13 catches for 81 yards and three touchdowns on 20 targets.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Finds end zone in Week 13 loss

    Bryant caught all five of his targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 36-19 loss to the Rams.

    Joe Flacco leaned heavily on his tight ends in his first start of the season, but surprisingly it was Bryant who the veteran QB showed the most chemistry with and not David Njoku, who caught only two of six targets for 17 yards. Bryant set new season highs in catches, yards and targets Sunday and has found the end zone in back-to-back games. If Flacco gets another start in Week 14 against the Jaguars, the fourth-year TE will be an intriguing fantasy option.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Scores second TD

    Bryant caught his lone target for a two-yard touchdown in Sunday's 29-12 loss to Denver.

    Bryant lined up in the backfield and found his way to an open space at the goal line to haul in the first career TD pass for quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson (concussion). It was Bryant's second touchdown of the season and first since Week 1. He's firmly behind David Njoku in the pecking order at tight end and has just 10 targets through 11 games. Bryant's knowledge of the system, however, keeps him relevant, and the Browns have deployed him in unique ways -- he's been used as both a runner and wildcat quarterback, although he fumbled a snap while lined up under center in Sunday's loss.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Suiting up Sunday

    Bryant (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bears.

    Bryant was never able to put in a full practice this week while managing the hip issue, but the Browns saw enough from him to give him the green light for Sunday. He'll likely continue to share backup tight end duties with Jordan Akins, with both players having logged double-digit snaps on offense behind starter David Njoku in three of the Browns' first five games of the season.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Likely to play Sunday

    Bryant (hip) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Colts, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Bryant is officially listed as questionable for the contest after he sat out Wednesday's practice due to the hip injury before returning to the field as a limited participant Thursday and Friday. Assuming he's cleared in advance of Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff, Bryant should step back in as the Browns' No. 2 tight end behind starter David Njoku.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Questionable for Sunday

    Bryant (hip) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Indianapolis, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant was active for Week 6 versus San Francisco, but he'll go into the new weekend with a questionable tag. If he can't play in Week 7, Jordan Akins will probably see an uptick in snaps.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Gets in limited practice

    Bryant (hip) was a limited participant at practice Thursday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Bryant missed practice entirely Wednesday and took a positive step forward by managing limited participation Thursday. If he can practice in full Friday, he would likely avoid carrying an injury designation into the weekend.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Missing practice Wednesday

    Bryant (hip) will not participate at practice Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

    Bryant played 25 offensive snaps in Sunday's win versus San Francisco, and it's not clear when he picked up the injury. Cleveland's injury reports Thursday and Friday will provide more context regarding his potential availability for Week 7.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Limited run in loss

    Bryant caught his lone target for two yards and had one rushing attempt for two yards in Sunday's 28-3 loss to Baltimore.

    Bryant played a season-low 12 snaps, fewer than third-string tight end Jordan Akins, but usage patterns were skewed due to the blowout nature of the game and rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson being under center instead of Deshaun Watson (shoulder). Bryant should still be viewed as the top backup to starter David Njoku. Interestingly, the Browns dialed up a run for Bryant, the second straight week the tight end has been used a runner since Nick Chubb was lost to a season-ending knee injury. The Browns are off in Week 5.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Involved as runner

    Bryant was not targeted but had two carries for four yards in Sunday's 27-3 win over Tennessee.

    Cleveland's first game without running back Nick Chubb (knee) provided rushing opportunities for unlikely players, as Bryant and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin each saw carries. Bryant had 25 snaps, once again fitting in between David Njoku (52) and Jordan Akins (13) on the tight end depth chart.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: No catches in loss

    Bryant did not catch either of two targets in Monday's 26-22 loss to Pittsburgh.

    Bryant was involved in the Browns' ominous first play of the game. Quarterback Deshaun Watson's throw was catchable, if slightly off target, but Bryant couldn't secure the ball and it deflected into the hands of Steelers linebacker Alex Highsmith, who returned it for a touchdown. Bryant (27 snaps) once again had more run than Jordan Akins (nine) and is firmly established as the backup tight end to starter David Njoku, although Monday's performance could begin to change that. Bryant's been targeted twice in each of the first two games.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Finds end zone in opener

    Bryant caught both of his targets for five yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 24-3 win over the Bengals in Week 1.

    Bryant caught quarterback Deshaun Watson's only touchdown pass, a surprising result given the offseason additions to the wideout corps and the presumed focus on a downfield approach to the passing game. Bryant's 27 offensive snaps were second among Browns' tight ends behind David Njoku's 52 and ahead of Jordan Akins' 23. Speculation during the preseason focused on Akins' history with Watson in Houston, but it was Bryant, in his fourth season with Cleveland, who emerged with more targets and time on the field.

  • Browns' Harrison Bryant: Returns to practice

    Bryant (medical condition) returned to practice Tuesday, Mary Kay Cabot of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

    Bryant missed the last few weeks due to a non-football health issue, but it was encouraging to see him back in action Tuesday. The 2020 fourth-rounder will now have a week and a half to work with the team during practice before the Browns' regular-season opener against the Bengals on Sept. 10.
