  • Hunter Bryant: Let go by Detroit

    The Lions waived Bryant (undisclosed) on Wednesday with a non-football injury designation.

    Bryant finished the 2021 campaign on the non-football injury list and has now been let go on the eve of the 2022 NFL Draft. He went undrafted out of Washington in 2020 and caught one pass for 44 yards during his rookie campaign before sitting out all of last season.

  • Hunter Bryant: Let go by Detroit

    The Lions waived Bryant (undisclosed) on Wednesday.

    Detroit frees up some roster space one day prior to the 2022 NFL Draft, waiving both Curtis Bolton and Bryant. The tight end spent the entire 2021 campaign on the reserve/non-football list, except for a stint on the COVID-19 list. Across five appearances in 2020, he was targeted three times.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Shifts to NFI list

    Bryant (undisclosed) shifted from the reserve/COVID-19 list to the reserve/non-football injury list Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Bryant has been on the non-football injury list since April 29 but landed on the reserve COVID-19 list Jan 5. He'll enter his third season as a pro in 2022 having recorded just one career reception on three targets.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Shifts to COVID list

    Bryant (undisclosed) was transferred to the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for the virus Wednesday, Aaron Wilson of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.

    Bryant has been on the NFI list all season but will now be on the COVID list until he clears the league protocols. He caught one pass for 44 yards in five games as a rookie last season but won't end up seeing the field in 2021.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Reverts to NFI list

    Bryant (undisclosed) has reverted to the Lions' reserve/Non-Football Injury list, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

    Bryant was just cut with a non-football injury designation, but he'll technically get to stick with Detroit while not counting against the team's 90-man roster. He appeared in five games as a rookie last season, recording one 44-yard catch while drawing three targets.

  • Hunter Bryant: Let go by Lions

    Detroit cut Bryant (undisclosed) with a non-football injury designation Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.

    Bryant saw minimal action with the Lions in 2020 as a depth tight end, hauling in one of three targets for 44 yards in five games. The Washington product has had a history of concussions that has kept him off the field, but his release appears to stem from a different injury concern. Assuming he can pass a physical at some point, Bryant should at least be able to get an invite to an NFL training camp this summer.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Minimal usage in season finale

    Bryant saw one target but did not catch a pass during Sunday's 37-35 loss to the Vikings.

    That makes three targets on the season for the undrafted rookie out of Washington whose rookie debut was delayed by a combination of hamstring and head injuries. Not seeing action until Week 13, Bryant at least showcased a bit of explosion in his limited playing time (7.0 offensive snaps per game) this year by catching one of them for a 44-yard gain in Week 15. However, with both T.J. Hockenson and Jesse James under contract through at least 2022, the majority of Bryant's value resides in dynasty formats for the time being.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Snags first career catch

    Bryant caught one of two targets for 44 yards during Sunday's 46-25 loss to the Titans.

    Lining up in the slot, the 6-foot-2 tight end (who's really more of a receiver) made a nice grab down the seam that marked his first catch as a pro. With Detroit out of playoff contention and none of the Lions' top four receivers under contract beyond this season, it'll be interesting to see if the Lions give the rookie an extended look during the final two games of the campaign.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Logs four snaps on offense

    Bryant logged four offensive snaps during Sunday's 31-24 loss to Green Bay.

    Bryant saw another handful of snaps after logging five in his professional debut last week against the Bears. While there's a chance interim head coach Darrell Bevell might experiment with the rookie down the stretch, Bryant will need to see a big jump in playing time to be worthy of fantasy attention.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Set to make season debut

    Bryant (concussion) practiced fully for the third straight day Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Bears.

    Bryant's absence from the injury report suggests he has cleared the concussion protocol and should make his season debut Sunday. His role will likely be limited primarily to special teams duties, however, as Bryant's unlikely to unseat T.J. Hockenson or Jesse James from the top two spots on Detroit's tight end depth chart.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Progressing through protocol

    Bryant (concussion) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice.

    Bryant was activated off injured reserve Wednesday after sitting out the first 11 games with a hamstring injury and, recently, a concussion. While he's been moved back to the active roster, his appearance on the injury report indicates that he may still be in the league's five-step concussion protocol. However, the undrafted rookie out of Washington is on track to make his NFL debut this Sunday against the Bears if this progress continues. He'll slot into a depth role at tight end behind T.J. Hockenson, Jesse James and Isaac Nauta.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Finally activated off IR

    Bryant (concussion/hamstring) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

    Bryant returned to practice Nov. 11 but it apparently took a few weeks for him to clear concussion protocol. Now ready for action, Bryant is nothing more than the third or fourth tight end on the depth chart, though he probably is the second-best pass catcher Detroit has at the position.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Returns to practice

    Bryant (concussion/hamstring) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from IR, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Bryant has yet to play this season, as he started the year with a hamstring injury and later was diagnosed with a concussion. It's unclear if he's still bothered by either injury, but the undrafted rookie out of Washington is eligible to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Football Team.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Misses another practice

    Bryant (concussion/hamstring) was held out of Detroit's practice session Thursday.

    The 22-year-old tight end was hampered by a hamstring issue for the first month of the season, and now he is navigating his way through concussion protocol as Detroit readies for a Week 6 matchup against the Jaguars. Bryant has yet to make an NFL appearance after registering 52 catches and 825 receiving yards last year during his final collegiate season at Washington.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Placed on IR

    Bryant (concussion/hamstring) was placed on IR on Friday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

    Bryant has been bothered by both a concussion and a hamstring injury, and the depth tight end will have to sit out for at least three weeks as a result. He can return Nov. 8 against Minnesota at the earliest, and Detroit may opt to bring in another tight end behind T.J. Hockenson and Jesse James in the meantime.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Enters concussion protocol

    Bryant didn't participate in Wednesday's practice due to a hamstring injury and a concussion.

    Bryant missed the first four games of the season with a hamstring injury, but the concussion is a near concern for the rookie tight end. He'll have two more days of practice to get onto the field before the Lions decide whether he carries a designation into Sunday's game versus the Jaguars.

  • Lions' Hunter Bryant: Sitting out Sunday

    Bryant (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game versus the Saints.

    The undrafted free agent out of Washington will remain sidelined through the Lions' Week 5 bye with hopes of returning against the Jaguars in Week 6. T.J. Hockenson and Jesse James are the only tight ends active for the Lions on Sunday.
