Mike Glennon likely to get the start at QB For the Bucs, in addition to McCoy, Mike Glennon is likely to start for QB Josh McCown (thumb), rookie TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins (ankle) was limited in practice while RB Doug Martin (knee) was a full go, along with WR Vincent Jackson (wrist) (Tampa Bay Tribune) FF Today's Take: Martin has gotten off to a rocky start with 9 total rushing yards after three weeks. Backup Bobby Rainey put the ball on the ground twice in Week 3 so the coaching staff shouldn't hesitate to give Martin a chance to regain the starting running back job in...

Saints vs. Buccaneers 2014: Can Tampa Bay stun the NFL again?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers look like they might have some positive momentum as they head to Louisiana to play the New Orleans Saints. Here's all our coverage of the game. Quarterback Josh McCown is unlikely to be healthy for Sunday's game, according to Rick Stroud. A report on Sunday suggested that McCown would be out six-plus weeks if he couldn't throw on Monday, but it appears that things are not quite that bleak for the veteran signal caller. Even if McCown is healthy, it's not clear he'd start over Mike Glennon. While Lovie Smith has historically been reluctant to change quarterbacks,...

Lovie Smith does not regret starting Josh McCown over Mike Glennon

The Bucs' head coach did not commit to his "future" quarterback on a Monday after his comeback victory over Pittsburgh. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers came from behind to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday, with Mike Glennon moving the ball down the field on a crucial final drive. But that's not enough to get Lovie Smith to name him the long-term starter for the Buccaneers. During a Monday press conference at One Buccaneer Place, Lovie Smith was asked to name a starting quarterback when Josh McCown returns to health, but declined to do so. He said that "Josh isn't back yet" and noted that...

Josh McCown could miss six weeks with torn thumb ligament

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers could see Mike Glennon starting for a significant number of games this year. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have to be without Josh McCown for the long term. According to ESPN, the quarterback has torn a ligament in his thumb and would miss at least six weeks if he were to undergo surgery on his thumb. He will attempt to throw on Monday, but if the pain is not manageable he will need to have that surgery. Lovie Smith has stood behind his quarterback, but McCown has struggled so far this year, throwing mind-boggling interceptions in every game and leading a very...
