The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't caught many breaks this season.

So it stands to reason that they won't get any against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-8) this Sunday.

Tampa Bay quarterback Josh Freeman, who missed last week's game against the Carolina Panthers with a sore throwing shoulder, is expected to be back against the Jaguars (3-9). 

"We're planning to warm it up and try to throw a little bit (Wednesday) afternoon and gage just where we're at, but ultimately the goal is to play on Sunday,'' Freeman told Tampa Bay Online.

Freeman has regressed this season but his strong arm and mobility still make him tough to defend. And against Jacksonville's depleted secondary, Freeman can get back on track.

The Bucs might be without cornerback Aqib Talib, who was limited with a hamstring strain against the Panthers.
