Bryant will kick today



It's official: Matt Bryant will kick for the Bucs today, one day after several members of the organization attended the funeral for his 3-month old son, Matthew Tryson.

There was never much doubt in Bryant's mind that he wanted to be with his teammates today. He told them early in the week he planned to play today against the Green Bay Packers. Consequently, the Bucs did not sign a place-kicker.

No doubt Bryant will be playing with a heavy heart after an emotional week. On Wednesday, Bryant's wife, Melissa, discovered that Tryson wasn't breathing when she went to wake the kids up for school.
