Bryant connected with 14-of-18 field goal attempts in 2015 before a quadriceps injury ended his season.

EDGE Analysis

It was a disappointing year for Bryant, as he missed more kicks this year than he did in 2014 despite playing in six fewer games and attempting 14 fewer kicks. He's got one more year left on his contract, but it won't be surprising if the Falcons bring in a young kicker to push the 40-year-old veteran in camp.

Bryant (quad) will not play Sunday against the Panthers.

As a result, Shayne Graham will once again fill in for Bryant this weekend. Bryant last saw the field in Week 11, and his next chance to kick for the Falcons will be the team's Dec. 20 road contest versus the Jaguars.

Bryant (quad) was limited at practice Wednesday, the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Taking the practice field for the first time since Week 11, Bryant's reps were predictably capped as he continues his recovery from a strained quadriceps. The Falcons will watch his progress as the week unfolds, but Shayne Graham is hanging around in case Bryant is unable to suit up Sunday at Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Head coach Dan Quinn relayed the news, stating that the Falcons will monitor his progress throughout the week to determine if he's ready to handle game-day kicking duties. If Bryant is unable to appease the training staff, the team will again turn to Shayne Graham, who has hit both extra points and all five field goals over the past two contests.

With Bryant having strained his quad Wednesday during practice, the Falcons have signed Shayne Graham.

EDGE Analysis

The Falcons haven't ruled Bryant out for Sunday's game against the Vikings, but the fact that the team move so swiftly to add another kicker suggests that Bryant is in danger of missing the contest.
