Browns' Armonty Bryant diagnosed with torn ACL

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

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.
