Cleveland Browns defensive end Desmond Bryant is out for the remainder of the 2013 NFL season due to an irregular heartbeat that will require surgery.

Cleveland Browns defensive end Desmond Bryant is out for the rest of the regular season after being diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. 

According to Tom Reed of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, the condition has lingered for two years. More specifically, "It's the second time this season and the third time in the past two years he's been diagnosed with a rapid heartbeat," Reed writes. 

Bryant "began experiencing symptoms" on Dec. 2 and is scheduled to undergo minor heart surgery within the week. He is expected to make a full recovery, per a Browns spokesman whom Reed cites in his Dec. 4 report. 

With the diagnosis, the team placed Bryant on its reserve/non-football illness list. 

He was taken to a local hospital on Oct. 3 after the irregular heartbeat condition resurfaced at halftime against the Buffalo Bills. NFL.com's Marc Sessler reported on Dec. 4 that the Cleveland defensive lineman experienced "shortness of breath" during that game. 

He was eventually discharged a day after. 

Bryant, who signed a five-year, $34 million contract with the Browns last March, spoke with the Associated Press in the aftermath of the October incident. 

"It's a pretty scary feeling. Your heart won't calm down. Fortunately, we've got a great team staff on hand and they've got me doing the right things I need and I'm now back to normal.

"We're doing some things to prevent it from happening again. I need to try to cut out anything that my start this up, as well as taking some medication to help prevent it." 

Sessler points out the Browns have called up receiver Brian Tyms from the practice squad to take Bryant's roster spot. 

Prior to him getting placed on the Browns' reserve list, Bryant had started all 12 games. During that span, he amassed 45 tackles and 3.5 sacks. He spent his first four NFL seasons with the Oakland Raiders, who signed him in 2009 as an undrafted free agent out of Harvard University.
