Josh Johnson Promoted to Starting QB for NFL's Buccaneers

Message

Josh Johnson became the first University of San Diego football player to be selected in the NFL Draft when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers picked him in the fifth round in 2008. This Sunday, Oct. 4, the record-setting college quarterback will make his mark again when he makes his first-ever NFL start against the Washington Redskins.


The decision to start Johnson was announced by Tampa Bay head coach Raheem Morris at today’s press conference. Johnson, who has had limited playing time in preseason games each of the last two seasons, made his regular-season debut late in Sunday’s 24-0 loss to the New York Giants. In relief of veteran Byron Leftwich, he played one fourth-quarter drive, completing four of 10 passes for 36 yards. He also had one 15-yard run. (Full Story on Inside USD)
