Glennon will start, Freeman will sit vs. Redskins
Quarterback Mike Glennon has come off the bench in each quarter and finished a game with a winning touchdown drive this preseason.
On Thursday night, the Bucs' rookie will make his first start.
Glennon will not only take the first snap against the Washington Redskins, he is expected to take the majority of them during the game, coach Greg Schiano said. Starting quarterback Josh Freeman will not play but veteran Dan Orlovsky will.
"The plan is, Mike’s going to play a lot,'' Schiano said. "Is he the starter? Proabably. We want Mike to keep getting repetitions. Dan is a multi-year vet who has had a lot of repitions. They’ll both play.''
