BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns defensive end Desmond Bryant has undergone a successful procedure to correct an irregular heartbeat.

Bryant's season ended with four games left because of a rapid heartbeat, a condition he has known about for several years and been treated for in the past. A Browns spokesman said Bryant had a cardiac ablation on Friday at the Cleveland Clinic. Bryant is expected to make a full recovery and resume his NFL career.

Bryant was one of Cleveland's biggest offseason acquisitions, signing a five-year, $34 million contract in March.

He finished with 3 1-2 sacks and 45 tackles in 12 games.

Bryant had been taking medication for the condition, which forced him to leave an Oct. 3 game against Buffalo. He experienced symptoms on Monday and the Browns announced on Wednesday that his season was over.
