Draft Scout Armonty Bryant News
07/18/17 - DL Armonty Bryant of the Detroit Lions was suspended for the first four games of the 2017 season for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The ban is the third for Bryant in one year. He was suspended four games with the Browns last season and, upon being claimed off waivers by the Lions, drew a three-game suspension for off-field conduct. Bryant pleaded guilty to attempted drug possession to resolve a 2015 case, prompting the league ruling. Bryant played in five games with the Lions in 2016 and had three sacks.
12/07/16 - CB Quandre Diggs and DE Armonty Bryant landed on injured reserve this week with pectoral and knee injuries, respectively. Diggs played as the Lions' nickel cornerback, but lost playing time recently as the team opted to use more three-safety sets in its nickel defense. Bryant was playing in his first game since returning from a three-game suspension. The Lions signed CB Asa Jackson off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad to take Diggs' place.
12/06/16 - DE Armonty Bryant was placed on injured reserve by the Detroit Lions on Tuesday. Bryant, who is dealing with a knee injury, had five tackles and three sacks in five games this season.
11/01/16 - DE Armonty Bryant has been suspended three games by the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy. Bryant served a four-game suspension for a similar offense earlier this season when he was employed by the Cleveland Browns. He was released by the Browns when the suspension ended.
10/08/16 - DE Armonty Bryant was activated from the exempt list on Saturday by the Detroit Lions. Bryant, 26, signed with Detroit earlier in the week after being released by Cleveland on Monday, the same day his four-game suspension for performance-enhancing drugs ended.
A seventh-round draft choice from East Central in Oklahoma in 2013, Bryant appeared in 31 games and totaled 71 tackles, 8.5 sacks, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
