Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Bucs QB Josh McCown will throw the ball to see how well he can sling it and if the pain from his torn ligament is tolerable. If it isn’t, McCown will head for surgery that would keep him out of the lineup for six weeks.
There’s been no public discussion of the quarterback plans moving forward in Tampa, but Lovie Smith may have given a hint while discussing how one win can change things after a rough start to the season.
“I definitely believe in momentum,” Smith said, via ESPN.com. “Sometimes nothing good happens until you just keep going. Once you get that momentum, you find a way to win. You have to experience it first. We didn’t know how to win.”
With Mike Glennon under center the last game and a quarter, the Bucs offense has shown some life. Glennon led the team to a game-winning TD in Pittsburgh in Week 4. We'll keep an eye on McCown's status, but it's hard to imagine the Bucs going back to him any time in the immediate future.
