Josh Freeman not throwing at Bucs practice, uncertain to play


Josh Freeman’s thumb is just fine a month after a strange accident at a shooting range. His shoulder is the bigger problem.

The Bucs quarterback didn’t throw for the second straight day of practice on Thursday, according to He hurt the shoulder on the Bucs’ final play from scrimmage against the Titans last Sunday when he lost a fumble.

Freeman has taken “mental reps” this week at practice, but he hasn’t been able to throw. Bucs coach Raheem Morris said that Freeman’s status may not be determined until Saturday or possibly gametime.

The Bucs need to beat Carolina to avoid falling into a tie for NFC South cellar at 4-8.  I’m starting to feel better about picking the Panthers to pull off the road upset.

    In addition, their entire D-line could be out as well. They’ll get shredded by Cam and Co.

    You know your team sucks when two players in your secondary are your leading tacklers.

    He’s not throwing at practice because he can’t find any members of the opposing team to throw to.

    Good chance for Josh Johnson to put something good on tape heading into free agency.

    The panthers are a heaping helping of “get right” for opposing offenses. No way he doesn’t play
