Josh Freeman Injury Update: Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Resumes Throwing In Thursday's Practice

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman resumed throwing during Thursday's practice, reports Joe Smith of the St. Pete Times, indicating there's a chance he could suit up for the Bucs' game against the Jacksonville Jaguars this Sunday. Freeman sat out Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers after spraining a joint in his right (throwing) shoulder the week prior against the Tennessee Titans. Starting in place of Freeman, Josh Johnson completed 16-of-27 passes for 229 yards, one touchdown, and one interception.

Freeman "threw some slant passes with velocity and some deeper throws," writes Smith, "and it didn't look like he was in discomfort." However, the team still lists him as questionable for Sunday's game, and all four of Tampa Bay's quarterbacks took practice reps on Thursday.

Freeman has completed a career-best 61.8 percent of his passes this season, his third overall. However, he has thrown just 12 touchdowns and 16 interceptions to date, just one year after tossing 25 touchdowns to six picks. If he's able to line up under center Sunday, he'll attempt to lead the Bucs to just their second win since Oct. 16, when they upset the New Orleans Saints behind Freeman's 303 passing yards and two touchdowns.
