That's the type of report that you never want to see.
Bryant, 27, is a fifth-year veteran out of Harvard University, spending his first four years with the Oakland Raiders. In that time, he'd missed just one game, earning a relatively clean bill of health and becoming one of the better and more versatile defensive lineman in the NFL.
Bryant has been healthy throughout his career and signed a five-year, $34 million contract with the Browns in March of 2013, per Dan Hanzus of NFL.com. He left a game against the Bills that also saw Brian Hoyer and EJ Manuel suffer injuries.
Prior to his departure, Bryant had recorded two tackles and two quarterback hits against the Bills. Check back with Bleacher Report for updates on Bryant's health status.
