Josh Freeman leaves Bucs game with thumb injury

Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman is only in his second year, but there are few players around the league that mean more to their franchise.

That’s why the Bucs are going to be extra careful with any injury Freeman suffers.  Freeman hit his thumb on Chiefs defensive end Tamba Hali’s helmet on a follow throw Saturday night, and left the game after one series.

He had his thumb taped while sitting on the bench and watched a few series, before jogging to the locker room for a further evaluation.   Freeman has thrown only nine passes in his two preseason outings. 

Josh Johnson is in the game at quarterback for Tampa.

    Kind of ironic — Freeman goes out and Leftwich comes in, but with different teams.

    Leftwich sucks. Steelers will lose every game he plays. I hope Freeman is OK. Big problems without him,.

    Apparently his thumb is fractured and will be out until the opener.

    You’re an effing idiot and you wouldn’t know a bust if it fell on your head. The guy has incredibly talent that is only surpassed by his work ethic. You truly have no clue about football and have just proven yourself a total idiot.
