Luke McCown is Recovering from Knee Surgery.
The Associated Press reports Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Luke McCown (knee) is recovering from knee surgery and is looking forward to competing for one of the team's backup quarterback positions. Doug Williams, a personnel executive with the team, said McCown would be placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list, prohibiting him from practicing with the team early in the season but allowing him to participate in team meetings. The team will consult with doctors midseason and if he is cleared, he could return to the active roster, according to Williams.
