Raiders’ Desmond Bryant hospitalized with rapid heartbeat


Raiders defensive tackle Desmond Bryant was taken to the hospital during Sunday’s game because of a rapid heartbeat, but he is expected to be OK.

The team confirmed that Bryant was taken to Eden Medical Center at the start of the second half of Sunday’s loss to the Buccaneers after the team’s medical staff determined that he had an accelerated heartbeat.

The Raiders said Bryant is “resting comfortably” and that he was taken to the hospital strictly for precautionary reasons.

The 6-foot-6, 311-pound Bryant is in his fourth season in Oakland after signing with the Raiders as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard in 2009.

  1. I’m sure the rest of the Raiders D woke up late last night with similar symptoms because of their nightmares/flashbacks of watching Doug Martin running by them like they were middle schoolers playing a high school team.
