Cleveland Browns defensive lineman Armonty Bryant was indicted on two felony drug possession charges on Wednesday.

Reports say the 25-year-old NFL pro faces charges for possession of Adderall and Oxycodone, while Brown De'Ante Saunders was indicted for improperly handling a weapon in a motor vehicle.

The charges stem from a traffic stop on Christmas morning on a Cleveland area interstate. Saunders was pulled over for speeding at around 2:15 a.m., after which troopers searched the car and found a Glock handgun and 22-round magazine. Three pills -- two Oxycodones and one Adderall -- also were found in the car.

After the arrest, Bryant was made inactive for the final two games of the Browns season, while Saunders was released from the practice squad soon after.

An arraignment is scheduled for both on Feb. 24. And, Bryant could also face discipline by the NFL for violations of the personal conduct and substance-abuse policies.
