Tampa Bay Buccaneers: QB Jim Miller, who is recovering from offseason rotator cuff surgery, still isn't ready to fully participate in practice but he has started throwing again. After making some light tosses while the Bucs were in Japan last week, Miller threw extensively on the side for the first time during Wednesday morning's workout and experienced no pain. "I'm just working my way back into it right now, but there was no elbow pain so it went well," Miller told the Tampa Tribune. "The big thing now is to get the strength back. If I can do that then I can take a hit on it." Miller remains hopeful that he'll be ready to play by the last preseason game.
