Lions release defensive end Armonty Bryant

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have released defensive end Armonty Bryant.

The Lions announced the move Monday. Bryant was suspended the first four games of this season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. He was eligible to return after that, but he did not play in Sunday’s loss to Carolina .

Bryant was previously suspended for violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He was cut by Cleveland last year at the end of that suspension, and Detroit signed him. He played five games for the Lions and had three sacks.

Bryant re-signed with Detroit in March, but hasn’t appeared in a game since.
