After practice on Friday, former Buccaneers starting quarterback Josh McCown spoke to members of the media regarding the progress of his throwing thumb he injured during Week 3 against Atlanta.
“It’s coming along well,” McCown said. “From the first day, it’s just been a day-to-day thing. Everyday is feels a little bit better, so it’s good to actually get a little bit more work in this week and get a better feel for it.”
Whether or not he’s still facing limitations remains unknown. The journeyman signal caller stuck to his head coach’s theme of withholding any further information on the injury.
“Well I mean right now if there are (limitations), I don’t want to discuss them,” McCown said. “I’ll just leave it at that. I don’t really want to get into where we are with the injury. But it’s coming along good.”
Smith has yet to name a backup quarterback this week, let alone a starter. All signs naturally point to Glennon under center, but we won’t know for sure until Sunday. With that being the case, Josh McCown didn’t confirm his status but said he would feel confident entering the game if at any point needed.
“We’ll see,” he said of being active for Sunday. “That’s his (Lovie Smith) call and I’ll leave those questions and answers up to him.
“If I were to play at anytime, I would feel confident playing, Whether that’s this Sunday or a couple of Sunday’s from now, anytime you go on the field you better feel confident playing. That’s my point.”
