Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman addressed a situation from just about a month ago, in which he suffered a cut on his right throwing thumb while shooting a pistol at a local shooting range.

“In retrospect, it was not the best decision,” Freeman said Wed.. “Gotta learn a lot from it. No more shooting guns in season.”

Freeman first suffered a twisted thumb in an October loss to the Chicago Bears in London. The firing-range incident came shortly after that as the Buccaneers went thru their bye week. Baseball lines

“With a tiny spare time during the bye week, I love to use the gun range,” Freeman said. “It’s a little bit of an escape. I grew up shooting firearms with my father and I’ve always enjoyed shooting firearms as a recreational thing.”

Freeman asserted he had fired that very same pistol “countless times” without any issues. But he revealed something went wrong with the recoil that day.

“It’s always been a little bit of a hobby,” Freeman asserted. “I always practice in safety. It was just a little bit of a freak incident.”

Freeman did not miss any practice time and has played in every game since the accident. Freeman said the cut on his thumb hasn’t influenced his throwing. Baseball betting lines

“Really not at all,” Freeman said. “The scratch on the thumb was purely cosmetic. The main thing that influenced me was the twist. Game in, game out, kept getting hit and it kept flaring back up. Though it was typically the sprain.”

While Freeman’s thumb injury was cleared up, coach Raheem Morris asserted Wednesday that his quarterback is also dealing with a right shoulder injury.

“Well, he hurt his shoulder at the end of ( Sunday’s loss at Tennessee ) on that bobbled sneak,” Morris said. “He kind of got tackled and sort of hurt his shoulder. It is sore. Right now he is day to day.

“We were hoping he would be a full go today, but he was limited. We will have the chance to hopefully appraise him tomorrow and the day after that and get him going, to work out if he will be able to get the chance to play.’ ‘

If not, the Bucs would need to turn to backup Josh Johnson, who lasted started a game in 2009.
