Browns DL Desmond Bryant says that he’s still holding out hope of returning at some point in 2016.
“Absolutely, I’m hopeful that I can [come back this season],” Bryant said, via Mark Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “The timetable for rehab is 4-6 months, so it’s possible. I’ll do everything I can to get back as soon as I can.”
Bryant explained that his time away from the team could prove to be a positive for him, as it will allow him to focus on other aspects of the game.
“These times away from football, as an athlete, I just try to focus on everything I can as if I were playing, and trying to elevate everything to the next level,” Bryant said. “I’m used to overcoming. When I get back, I’ll be good as new.”
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald admitted that he’s at least thought about the possibility of retiring, but he still has “a lot of good football left in me.”
“I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t think about it,” Fitzgerald said on Wednesday’s NFL Total Access. “Just trying to prepare for the next phase in your life, but I have a lot of good football left in me. How long I will play, I don’t know. I feel great. I can still play at a high level. I just have to take it one year at a time and I got a really fantastic team I’m a part of.”
