Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden will be speaking to the media in about an hour and he may provide an update on the status of kicker Matt Bryant for Sunday's game against Green Bay.

Obviously, Bryant has the option of sitting out after the death of his three-month-old son, Matthew Tryson, on Wednesday. That's going to be up to Bryant and it's a very personal and delicate situation.

The Bucs do have to be prepared for any possibility. We're hearing that one possible fill-in candidate is Shane Andrus. He has spent time with the Colts and Giants the last two preseasons.
