TAMPA, Fla. Josh Freemans spiral continues. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers declared the quarterback inactive before their game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium. On Friday, coach Greg Schiano alluded the move was possible, when he declined to confirm that the five-year veteran was the teams No. 2 quarterback after rookie Mike Glennon was named the starter Wednesday. "Ninety minutes before, I'm going to name our actives and inactives," Schiano said Friday, when asked about Freemans status. "That's how we're going to go." Freemans absence caps a tumultuous week for the former No. 17 overall pick. He was benched after he began 43-of-94 passing with 571 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions in three starts. Originally, he was named the teams No. 2 quarterback, but Schianos tone changed after Freeman was part of an unauthorized interview with ESPN on Thursday in which the player suggested a trade would be the best option for him. Meanwhile, wide receivers Vincent Jackson (ribs) and Mike Williams (hamstring) are active after missing practices Wednesday and Thursday. Both were listed as questionable after limited participation Friday. You can follow Andrew Astleford on Twitter @aastleford or email him at aastleford@gmail.com.
