Tampa Bay QB Josh Freeman fractured the tip of his right thumb in Saturday night’s game vs. the Chiefs, and the team says he’ll be out for the rest of the preseason. As ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas writes, he’s expected to return by the season-opener.

For now, the Buccaneers only have two other quarterbacks on the roster – Josh Johnson and Rudy Carpenter. That most likely will change early this week.

Think Freeman not playing is a big deal? Yasinskas begs to differ. From his story:

(A)ny sort of setback could push that return date back. If that happens, the Bucs are in real trouble and the decision not to bring in a veteran backup in the offseason could turn out to be a huge error.

Johnson has some ability, but he’s nowhere near ready to be an NFL starter and I’m not sure he’s even a quality No. 2 quarterback. Carpenter’s a guy who was on the bubble because the Bucs have made some rumblings about going into the season with only two quarterbacks – that was before Freeman’s injury.

Now, the Bucs at least have to bring in another quarterback just to help get them through practices. There’s not a lot out there right now. But I think the Freeman injury exposes how thin the Bucs are at quarterback.
