Lovie Noncommittal on Starting QB

Mike Glennon led the Bucs to their first win of the 2014 season, but it wasn't enough for head coach Lovie Smith to name him the starter for the rest of the season.

Mike Glennon led the Bucs to their first win of the 2014 season, but it wasn't enough for head coach Lovie Smith to name him the starter for the rest of the season.

At his press conference on Monday, Lovie Smith was noncommittal as to which quarterback would be the starter once Josh McCown recovered from his thumb injury.

Josh McCown has struggled as the starting quarterback for the Bucs this season. In slightly less than 2 1/2 games played, McCown has thrown for 420 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. For comparison, Mike Glennon has more yards (423), more touchdowns (3), and less interceptions (1) in the game and a half that he has played in.

"He made good decisions throughout the game," Lovie Smith said of Glennon's game against the Steelers.

Josh McCown was slated to test his injured thumb on Monday to see if he could play through the pain. If he chooses surgery, McCown would be out at least six weeks.
