Garcia returns to practice

TAMPA - Guess who was back at practice Friday at One Buc Place?
That’s right, for the first time since he hurt his back in the game against Washington last week, Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia was back working out.
The media was whisked away from the practice field before the good stuff started, but we were allowed to watch the warm-up and stretching period and Garcia particpated fully in that. Two days after he said his back was too sore to bend over or even attempt to throw a ball he was bending over back and forth and sideways and jogging with the rest of the team.
I did not see him throw a ball (Like I said, we were whisked away before the good stuff started), but this was a sign that Garcia is indeed making some progress and feeling better and may actually play Sunday at New Orleans.
The Bucs have been giving Luke McCown the majority of the snaps in practice this week and he will likely start should Garcia be unable to go. However, if Garcia can practice he can probalby play, so it’s starting to look like he’ll be ready to go come Sunday. Unless, of course, he suffers a set back.
