Desmond Bryant cleared to play for Cleveland Browns

Desmond Bryant is all systems go.

The Cleveland Browns defensive end tweeted Friday that he's been cleared to return to football activities after his 2013 campaign was cut short by a heart condition:

Bryant, 28, was placed on the reserve/non-football illness list with an irregular heartbeat in December before undergoing a cardiac ablation procedure to correct the issue.

That operation ended a solid first year in Cleveland for Bryant, who started in 12 games and racked up 45 tackles and 3.5 sacks after signing a five-year, $34 million pact with the team last March.

Bryant has struggled with an irregular heartbeat before, raising concerns about his future in the league. His return ensures that the NFL's ninth-ranked defense will keep intact a strong front that also includes Phil Taylor and Ahtyba Rubin.
