Patience leads Green to right call
Tampa's QB shuffle: The Bucs worked out Tommy Maddox, Shaun King and four young quarterbacks Tuesday but didn't make a quick decision about signing one, giving themselves a little more time to check out the trade market. Chris Simms is a question mark for the rest of the season after having his spleen removed, so the Bucs still have to do something until Luke McCown is ready to go coming off major knee surgery. McCown is on the physically unable to perform list and won't begin practice until Week 6.
Finger trap: Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn practiced Tuesday despite cutting his thumb on Monday. Wednesday will be the key day to see if Terrell Owens can make a quick comeback from his ring finger surgery. Owens had a lot of swelling around the back of his hand, so it might be a push for him to be ready for Sunday's game. He plans to be able to play against Philadelphia the following week, but Bill Parcells will watch to see what Owens can do Wednesday.
