Chris Simms may get his chance after all.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers starting quarterback Brian Griese suffered a right hip strain in Sunday's loss to the Carolina Panthers and is listed as questionable for Sunday's season-finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden said he is waiting to make a decision.

"We'll see the significance of the injury,'' Gruden said. "Obviously, if he's hurt and he can't play, Chris would be the guy who would go. But I don't want to speculate any further. We'll see how Brian feels in the next couple of days.'' Offensive lineman Derrick Deese sprained his left foot and is questionable for Sunday. Center Sean Mahan has a left quad sprain and is probable.
