The Cleveland Browns have received bad news on defensive end Armonty Bryant.

Take a look at how the NFL has evolved from its humble roots, and the efforts being made to ensure it continues to grow.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Bryant was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Monday, per a source who has spoken with the player. Bryant suffered the injury during Sunday's 31-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

It's a tough blow for a Browns defense that received a significant contribution from Bryant in the early part of the season. Bryant played well after stepping into a bigger role when Phil Taylor went out with his own knee injury. Jabaal Sheard could see a larger role with Bryant down.

Bryant wasn't the only notable Browns player to suffer a serious injury on Sunday. The team will also be forced to move forward without starting center Alex Mack, who suffered a broken lower leg in the win.
