For the first time in over a month, Bucs HC Josh McCown practiced Monday. But coach Lovie Smith wasn’t about to say if the quarterback would step back into the starting job.
McCown suffered a sprained right thumb in the Week 3 loss to Atlanta and Mike Glennon has been starting since. There are no official injury reports on Mondays and Smith wasn’t about to break tradition.
“Wednesday I can talk a little bit more,’’ Smith said. “Monday is kind of an extra day. As we talked about (at the start of the season) on Monday practices I’m not going to talk about injuries. That part hasn’t changed. But Wednesday we’ll talk a little bit more.’’
Smith couldn’t have talked less about his quarterback situation. He gave a quick answer when asked how McCown looked.
“He was able to practice and get reps in today,’’ Smith said. “So he’s making progress.’’
The author said Glennon should be the starter in Week 8, but also added that nothing would be surprising.
