Bryant, who did not record a tackle in Sunday's loss to Baltimore, finished the season with 49 tackles (25 solo), five sacks and a forced fumble.

Bryant played in each of the Browns' final 15 games, despite dealing with his fair share of bumps and bruises, and was one of the few steady contributors on the Browns' defensive line. His run-stuffing ability doesn't get recognized on the stat sheets, however, making him unlikely to produce steady numbers for IDP owners.

Bryant's presence will help bolster a thin Cleveland defensive line in the regular season finale. He logged just two combined tackles in Week 16, but with 49 total tackles and five sacks so far this season, Bryant has certainly shown flashes of being a capable IDP option at times.

Bryant (thigh) had four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Bryant now has two sacks in his past three games, giving him a total of five on the season. He now has 47 combined tackles on the year, but isn't a major factor as an IDP outside of deeper formats.

Bryant had six tackles (three solo) and two sacks in Thursday's victory over the Bengals.

Bryant has some injury concerns to start the season, but has played a more consistent snap count of late, and is tied for second on the team in sacks (3). He's likely the Browns most productive defensive lineman to own at this point, though Paul Krueger and his six sacks continue to lead the pass rushing attack.

Bryant (wrist) is active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Bryant suited up for the Browns' Week 3 contest despite the minor wrist ailment, so it's not overly surprising to see him in action once again following the bye week. He'll likely draw the starting nod at defensive end, although the Browns run a relatively deep D-line rotation.

Bryant missed Cleveland's season opener while still recovering from wrist surgery, but will make his 2014 debut Sunday versus New Orleans. The defensive end's availability boosts the Browns' chances of putting pressure on Saints' quarterback Drew Brees.

Bryant (wrist) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Steelers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Bryant's status for the opener had been looking grim all along following preseason wrist surgery, leaving him with a "doubtful" tag heading into Sunday. As expected, he won't suit up, leaving extra reps for Phil Taylor, Armonty Bryant and Billy Winn on the defensive line.

Bryant (wrist) is listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's season opener against the Steelers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Bryant underwent mid-August wrist surgery, which has all along left his status for the opener in question. Fortunately, the Browns are deep on the defensive line, and will turn to the likes of Armonty Bryant, Billy Winn and Ishmaa'ily Kitchen to help fill the void.

Bryant underwent wrist surgery Wednesday, leaving his status for the season opener in question, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Bryant remains without an exact timetable for return, but the Browns did say he won't be placed on injured reserve, so an early-season return seems likely. If he's unable to suit up for the Week 1 matchup against the Steelers, look for Phil Taylor to get the start, with Armonty Bryant to see increased work on the defensive line.
