TAMPA, Fla. -- Early indications are that Tampa Bay kicker Matt Bryant will play today.

Bryant is on the field loosening up right now. Bryant's infant son passed away Wednesday and there was some uncertainty about if Bryant would be available today.

The Bucs left the decision up to Bryant and he apparently decided to play. Tampa Bay has not signed another kicker.
