Hold Your Breath Bucs Fans: Josh Freeman Hurt

August 21st, 2010

Bucs fans right now are praying with their rosaries, lighting candles, looking for rabbits’ feet, hunting for four-leaf clovers and trying any good luck charm they can come up with.

Josh Freeman has injured the thumb on his throwing hand.

In the only series he played, Freeman hit a helmet of a Chiefs defender on a follow through and it was the last the Bucs saw of him for the game.

The Buccaneers Radio Network announced they could see Freeman wincing after his thumb hit the helmet. Dave Moore on the Buccaneers Radio Network noted Freeman was “in a good bit of pain.”

If Freeman cannot go against Cleveland, this will be terrible news for the Bucs.

The good thing is, if there is such a thing, Josh Johnson looked the best he has ever looked as he played the remainder of the first half.

[UPDATE:  Per Buccaneers Radio Network, Freeman has a fractured tip of his right thumb. Bucs “optimistic” he can practice this week.]

    Josh Freeman broken thumb=end of Raheem era in Tampa Bay, Johnson can’t carry this team!

  8. Pete Dutcher Says:

    I have to say, concerning the backups…I think Rudy Carpenter is better than Josh Johnson. I know a lot of people willl not agree, but Carpenter is no less accurate than Johnson and he’s got a much better pocket presense.

    Josh Johnson another Garcia pocket collapses run for his life..

  10. TJ Says:

    think it is really starting to come a reality that Ward is on the fringe of being cut

  11. Pete Dutcher Says:

    I agree. I think tonight was his last chance. They might keep him till the final cuts, hoping to trade him though.

    Well I am sure glad that I didn’t waste a PENNY of my own and hand them over to the Glazers.

    Than you live streaming internet! Thank you for unblocking that supposed blackout!

  13. Jorge Says:

    yes pete i agree

  14. Tye Says:

    I have to admit, I myself thought Rudy Carpenter showed more promise and ability….. When the pocket collapses Josh lowers his eyes and forgets about down field….. He wouldn’t last long doing that against a quality Defense!
