Desmond Bryant tore his pectoral in July, and will not play during the 2016 season.


At 6'6" and 310 pounds Desmond Bryant is a powerful and athletic big man who is a great fit as a 3-4 end. As a pass rusher he is on par with the better players the league at the position. Unfortunately we will not see him on the field this season as Bryant suffered a torn pectoral muscle while lifting weights in July. (July 13)
