Lions' Austin Bryant: Returns to lineup for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (thigh) will suit up for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

The second-year man out of Clemson had been held out three consecutive games entering Week 14, however, now Detroit gets another reinforcement along its defensive line with the activation of Bryant. A pectoral injury kept him sidelined through Week 8, but an appearance against the division-rival Packers will mark Bryant's third of the 2020 campaign.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Inactive as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant won't suit up in Sunday's game against the Bears due to a thigh injury.

Bryant was deemed doubtful for the contest Friday after logging a trio of limited practice sessions, so this news isn't surprising. Bryant will miss his second straight contest with the thigh issue, and he's only appeared in two games so far this campaign. With Da'Shawn Hand (groin) also sidelined, Romeo Okwara Everson Griffen and Frank Herron are the only healthy defensive ends on the roster Sunday.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Downgrades to doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryan (thigh) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game versus the Bears, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Initially considered questionable after a trio of limited practice sessions, Bryant is now expected to miss a second straight game. He's struggled to stay healthy this year, but he's handled a major role when active. Bryant played at least 47 percent of the snaps on defense in both games he has played, recording three total tackles. Romeo Okwara and Everson Griffen are the only healthy defensive ends for Sunday.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Unavailable for Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (thigh) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Texans, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

With Da'Shawn Hand (groin) also ruled out, the Lions will enter Thursday's game with Romeo Okwara and Everson Griffen as their only healthy defensive ends. Bryant managed to practice in a limited fashion all week, so he stands a good chance to return Week 13 against Chicago.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Downgrades to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (thigh) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Carolina.

Bryant entered the weekend as questionable, but he won't travel with the team and has downgraded to out. He played 71 total snaps over the past two weeks, and the Lions will be shorthanded at defensive end without both Bryant and Da'Shawn Hand (groin) unavailable. As a result, they elevated Frank Herron to add depth behind Romeo Okwara and Everson Griffen.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Lifted from PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions activated Bryant (pectoral) off the reserve/PUP list Saturday, Chris Burke of The Athletic reports.

Bryant has yet to play this season, but he has three weeks of practice under his belt and has proved to be healthy enough to return to action. The 23-year-old defensive end averaged 32.3 defensive snaps per game over four contests in 2019, and he could have a similar role moving forward because Trey Flowers (ankle) is on IR. However, Da'Shawn Hand and Romeo Okwara are the starters for the time being.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (pectoral) returned to practice Wednesday, indicating the beginning of his 21-day window to be activated from the reserve/PUP list, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Bryant didn't participate in training camp, and this was his first time on the practice field this season. The 2019 fourth-round pick has been dealing with a pectoral injury, but it appears he could make a return to the lineup soon. Trey Flowers (ankle) and Da'Shawn Hand are the Lions' starting defensive ends, but once he's healthy, Bryant will battle for leftover reps with Romeo Okwara.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Placed on PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (undisclosed) was placed on the reserve/PUP list Saturday.

Bryant spent almost the entirety of training camp on the active/PUP list and now he will begin the regular season in the same position. The defensive end has a chance to be activated once he is fully recovered from his undisclosed injury.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Heads to PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions placed Bryant (undisclosed) on the active/PUP list Sunday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

A 2019 fourth-round pick, Bryant was limited to just four games as a rookie due to shoulder and hip injuries. The details of his current issue remain undisclosed, but Bryant will need to gain full medical clearance before returning to practice.

Lions' Austin Bryant: All set to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (hip) did not earn an injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

Bryant has played in just one game to date, but it appears as if the defensive lineman will make his return to the rotation in Week 15.

December 8, 2019 11:44 AM
Lions' Austin Bryant: Inactive as expected
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (hip) won't play in Sunday's game against the Vikings.

Bryant was carrying a doubtful tag coming into Week 14, so his absence from the lineup isn't quite a surprise. It will be the second straight game missed for the rookie out of Clemson, and in his stead, only Trey Flowers and Romeo Okwara are healthy for the game at the defensive end position.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (arm) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Bryant has missed all but one game on the season, and this would mark his second straight absence. He practiced Wednesday before surfacing on the injury report Thursday and wasn't able to return. With Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) already ruled out, the Lions could be thin at defensive end Sunday.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Lifted from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions activated Bryant (arm) from injured reserve Tuesday.

Bryant has been practicing for three weeks, so he should be ready to make his NFL debut Sunday against the Redskins. The rookie fourth-rounder out of Clemson could be immediately thrust into a sizable workload since Trey Flowers (concussion) and Da'Shawn Hand (ankle) starting the week on the injury report.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Designated to return from IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (arm) was officially designated to return from injured reserve and practiced Wednesday, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Bryant has been sidelined by the arm injury since late July but could be nearing his NFL debut. The rookie fourth-round pick would likely provide some depth on the defensive line for the Lions.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (arm) did not play in Friday's preseason game against the Bills.

The fourth-round rookie is presumably still hampered by the arm injury he sustained during the opening days of training camp. It's not clear if Bryant will be available for Week 1, but there hasn't been any mention of a possible stint on the PUP or IR lists.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Day-to-day with arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (arm) is considered day-to-day, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bryant was just activated July 23 from the Lions' NFI list after recovering from a torn right pectoral -- the same side on which he sustained the arm injury Sunday. When healthy, the 22-year-old is expected to add depth to Detroit's defensive front behind Trey Flowers (shoulder) and Da'Shawn Hand (arm).

Lions' Austin Bryant: Leaves practice early
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant left Sunday's practice early with an apparent arm injury, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Bryant was activated Tuesday off Detroit's non-football injury list after recovering from a torn pectoral. Birkett reports that the apparent injury is on Bryant's right arm - the same side on which he tore his pectoral last season. It's unclear how serious the injury is. When healthy, Bryant is expected to add depth to Detroit's defensive front behind Trey Flowers (shoulder) and Da'Shawn Hand (arm).

Lions' Austin Bryant: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lions activated Bryant (pectoral) off their Non-Football Injury list Tuesday, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Bryant had surgery Jan. 17 to repair a torn pectoral and seems to be fully recovered from the injury. The fourth-round pick in April's draft was a lesser-known Clemson lineman but still racked up at least 8.0 sacks in his final two seasons for the Tigers. Now that he's healthy, he has enough power and polish to his game to add useful depth on Detroit's edge.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (pectoral) was placed on the Lions' Non-Football Injury list Friday.

Bryant was contained to rehab work during June's minicamp and it's unclear if he'll be ready during training camp. The 22-year-old had surgery Jan. 17 to repair a torn pectoral. The Lions begin training camp Wednesday.

Lions' Austin Bryant: Spends offseason workouts doing rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bryant (pectoral) was contained to rehab work during June's minicamp, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

Bryant presumably spent OTAs doing rehab as well, as he works his way back from Jan. 17 surgery to repair a torn pectoral. There's no telling if he'll be full-go in time for the start of training camp next month.
