There was a minor addition to the Detroit Lions’ reserve/COVID-19 list on Wednesday, one that probably elicits the “oh yeah, I wondered what happened to that guy” reaction.
The Lions placed tight end Hunter Byrant on the COVID list on injured reserve. Bryant has been on Detroit’s IR all season, reverting there after Detroit waived him from the non-football injury list this past spring. No other team claimed the former collegiate All-American at Washington.
Bryant suffered two significant knee injuries before coming to the Lions as an undrafted free agent in 2020, and the NFI designation also involved a knee issue. It’s interesting that Bryant is still around the team despite having no chance of playing for the Lions in 2021. He caught one pass in five games in 2020.
