Josh Freeman out for preseason

It's news that traveled pretty fast during the Bucs/Chiefs preseason game.  Josh Freeman, hurt early in the first quarter left the game, went to the locker room and came back out after halftime with a heavy wrap on his throwing hand.  He hurt it on a 3rd down pass where, in the course of throwing, hit his hand on a player's helmet.  It happens all the time and is a freak accident.  First described as a sprain, the news got a bit worse, thought not season threatening.  He has fractured the tip of his thumb on his throwing (right) hand and is out for the remainder of the preseason.  He is expected to be ready for the Week 1 opener against Cleveland. 

Some nervous moments when it happened.  Now lets hope it mends quickly and correctly.
