Bucs QB McCown active, but will not start

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) Tampa Bay quarterback Josh McCown is active Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, but will not start for the fourth straight game.

The 35-year-old opened the season as the starter, but has not played since injuring his right thumb at Atlanta on Sept. 18. He returned to practice this week following a bye and is active as Mike Glennon's backup.

Quarterback Mike Kafka, linebackers Brandon Magee and Johnathan Casillas, safety Keith Tandy, cornerback Brandon Dixon, and offensive linemen Kevin Pamphile and Kadeem Edwards are inactive for the Bucs.

Fullback Zach Line, linebackers Gerald Hodges and Brandon Watts, guards Vladimir Ducasse and David Yankey, tight end Kyle Rudolph and defensive end Scott Crichton are inactive for the Vikings.
