Matt Bryant’s three-month old son, Matthew (Tyson) Bryant, was found dead this morning at the Bryants’ home Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times reports. According to Chucky, the boy “just didn’t wake up.”

Bryant will not play for the Bucs on Sunday. Chucky, naturally, wouldn’t comment today on who will replace Bryant.

“This puts things in real perspective,” Gruden said. “We’ll deal with it from a football standpoint. We’re just worried about Matt’s personal standpoint. He and Melissa. They’re great friends.”
