Freeman did some light tossing on Friday and is regarded as being a game-time decision, head coach Raheem Morris said on Friday.
"Obviously, he’ll be a game-time decision and we’ll take it right up until the last moment of truth out there, so we’ll see,’’ Morris said according to the St. Petersburg Times. "He went out and threw the ball around a little bit. Still limited. We’ll have an opportunity to see more tomorrow and the next day after that.
"Progress? Obviously, he threw the ball. The first couple days he didn’t throw it as much. He threw it a little yesterday, he threw it more today.''
If Freeman is unable to start against the Carolina Panthers, fourth-year quarterback Josh Freeman would make his fifth NFL start and his first since the 2009 season.
