Matt Bryant’s Infant Son Passes Away

Matt Bryant’s infant son passed away this morning.  The Bucs were notified after their practice today.

“We had a terrible tragedy this morning,” said Gruden. “We lost a key member of our family. Matt Bryant and Melissa lost their youngest son. I don’t have a lot of details but…it’s hard. Our prayers go out to the Bryants.
Not much can be said when something like this occurs.  Losing a child is something that I can not even contemplate.  Prayers from Pewter Plank and I know that I can say the same for every member of Fan-Sided Blogs.

    This is terrible news.  So sad.  I have my own 15 month old son I worry about things happening to all the time.  So it certainly hits home hard when such a young life ends.  I don’t know what happened, but my prayers are with the Bryant and Buc family.

    I don’t know how to begin.  We have two sons of our own and our youngest is 3 months old.  Being a mother, I know how much love you can have for your children and how they change your outlook on life in an instant.  My little family’s thoughts and prayers are with you all in this time of need.

    Matt - Moose and I were stunned and saddened to hear about the loss of your son.  Just know that we’re thinking of you and you are all in our prayers.  We know you’re in everyone’s hearts and prayers throughout the Golden Triangle!!!  We love you. – Sara

    There’s nothing ANYONE can say about such a thing, but having a 3-month old son myself, I can empathize. Our older daughter (nearly two) had a bout w/retinoblastoma (cancer of the eye), and I’ve never experienced so frightening in all my life. She survived, but my wife and I will NEVER be the same. Life is fragile and precious and temporary in the best-case scenario. Your story touched my wife and I immensely… you are not alone.
