Bucs head coach Raheem Morris said that the team will extend the competition for the starting quarterback position one more week. The plan is for Byron Leftwich to get the start against Miami on Thursday night and to play one and a half quarter versus the Dolphins. Luke McCown will replace him midway through the second quarter and play a quarter and a half, too.
