Desmond Bryant to NFI list with irregular heartbeat


Browns defensive tackle Desmond Bryant said in October, when he was checked a second time for an irregular heartbeat, that he thought it was a “one-time thing.”

It apparently wasn’t, and now has ended his season.

The Browns have placed Bryant on the non-football injury list because of a similar problem, according to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports.


Bryant was hospitalized earlier this year after he fell ill during a game against the Bills. At the time, he said doctors discussed performing an ablation in the future, but didn’t think it would be necessary then.

He went through a similar problem when he was with the Raiders, thinking then it wasn’t a serious problem either.

Bryant has played well for the Browns, starting all 12 games, with 3.5 sacks.

    I have this same issue – not a big deal – it’s not enough of a problem to keep him from playing – ablation???? He’s too young for that.
    Thousands of people walk around with this problem and have normal lives – let the guy play! Not a big deal at all

    I experienced a few months of an irregular heartbeat about 10 years ago when going through a real estate deal. A month later I had a stroke. Ya never know………

    Had an ablation done back in May and has been great thus far. Beats aspending the rest of your life on blood thinners because your stroke risk goes up x5.
