In­jury likely to side­line Browns’ Bryant for sea­son

The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

CLEVE­LAND — Browns start­ing de­fen­sive end Des­mond Bryant will miss the up­com­ing sea­son with a chest in­jury.

Cleve­land’s leader in sacks last sea­son, the 30year-old Bryant un­der­went surgery on Tues­day to re­pair a torn pec­toral mus­cle. The Browns said Bryant sus­tained the in­jury dur­ing a work­out last week.

The team said Wed­nes­day that Bryant is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery, but “will un­likely be able to return dur­ing the 2016 sea­son.”

First-year coach Hue Jack­son says the team will miss Bryant, as he was hop­ing to be­come a leader on the team.

The Browns signed Bryant as a free agent in 2013 af­ter the for­mer Har­vard player spent four sea­sons with the Oak­land Raiders. He had six sacks in 14 games last sea­son and has recorded 14½ sacks dur­ing his three sea­sons with Cleve­land.
