The reports coming out of Tampa Bay suggest Josh Freeman’s broken right thumb isn’t going to be an issue.
Freeman went through his first practice Tuesday since breaking the thumb several weeks ago, and he had no issues while taking his normal amount of snaps, according to The St. Petersburg Times. The team’s official site also noted the normally mundane quarterback-center exchanges also went off without a hitch.
“He looked good out there,” coach Raheem Morris said. “He looked great being back with his football team. He went through a whole practice today, and we look forward to him progressing throughout the week and getting better and better and just getting back into what he was doing before he went out.”
Freeman’s thumb is the No. 1 topic around the Bucs right now, but it looks like it can slide to the back burner.
