Abstract: Let $ G$ be a finite group with a cyclic Sylow $ p$-subgroup for some prime $ p \geq 13$. Assume that $ G$ is not of type $ {L_2}(p)$, and that $ G$ has a faithful indecomposable modular representation of degree $ d \leq p$. Some known lower bounds for $ d$ are improved, in case the center of the group is trivial, as a consequence of results on the degrees $ \pmod p$ of irreducible Brauer characters in the principal $ p$-block.
