Bryant has been diagnosed as suffering from posterior cruciate knee ligament damage which will see him sidelined for four weeks at the very least.
Meanwhile, striker Nathan Ellington (pictured) is hoping to make his return to first team action in time for the FA Cup second round tie with Aldershot Town.
Club physio Phil Kite told the club's official website: "Scan results last week showed there was still some swelling around the knee which is causing Nathan pain whenever he tries to strike the ball.
"It isn't affecting his running or other training though and, if he doesn't feature at the weekend, there is a strong possibility he'll be back in the squad to play Aldershot."
