Safety Phillips to Sit with a Broken Left Thumb

The St. Petersburg Times today talks about safety Jermaine Phillips and his thumb injury suffered vs the Bills:

Bucs S Jermaine Phillips was being evaluated Monday after breaking his left thumb at Buffalo. It’s the latest in a long, frustrating series of broken bones for Phillips, who has had multiple surgeries on his arms and wrists. Last season, Phillips broke his forearm in midseason, then returned and broke the opposite arm several weeks later. He also had broken arms in 2004 and 2005. His injury history likely impacted his marketability as a free agent in the offseason, when he drew little interest and returned on a one-year deal. Though a broken thumb isn’t necessarily season ending, Phillips’ situation is not typical. “Jermaine’s broken his arms seven times and it’s a little different deal,” coach Raheem Morris said. ‘We have to see the doctors. It’s a broken thumb but I don’t know to what extent it is.”

    Start Josh Freeman. Were in a rookie year of coaching & then some. Sorry Leftwich, you throw like Romo with MORE interceptions. We have to turn things around. Everything else has changed why not give our team the next Matt Ryan or Mark Sanchez? What have we got to lose? Look at our schedule! Give Freeman a shot.
