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.
