Here's the story:

ESPN.com news services
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bucs coach Jon Gruden informed Brad Johnson that Chris Simms will take over as the starting quarterback for the immediate future.

Simms was inactive Sunday against the Broncos behind Johnson and Brian Griese and there was some speculation that Gruden could go with Griese. After meeting with Johnson Monday, Gruden needed the night to think about whether or not to make a change.

Johnson was replaced by Simms a couple weeks ago after 15 plays. In four games, Johnson completed 63.1 percent of his passes for 647 yards and three touchdowns and three interceptions. His quarterback rating was 79.5, but the offense as a whole was going nowhere.

Simms gives the Bucs more mobility in the pocket, but it may be tough for him to turn around an offense in transition. He's completed 21 of 33 passes for 175 yards, a 5.3 yard per attempt average that more than a yard lower than Johnson's. He was sacked four times and doesn't have a touchdown pass.

Interesting, to say the least. I have found a conflicting report from this afternoon. Unless that ESPN report is from tonight we'll have to wait a little longer until this clears up.

From RotoWire:

While Bucs head coach Jon Gruden is deciding whether to give Brian Griese the start at quarterback over Brad Johnson for Sunday's game at New Orleans, Simms is evidently not being considered as a possible starter this week, the St. Petersburg Times reports.

According to the report, Gruden met with Johnson on Monday to seek his advice on who should start next week. With the Bucs preparing to play consecutive road games against the Saints and Rams, if Gruden decides to make an immediate change, the veteran Griese will get the nod over Simms for now. However, if Gruden decides to keep Johnson at the helm for now, Simms might get the call in Week 7, when the Bucs follow those two road games with home games against the Bears and Chiefs. Griese was activated for last week's game against Denver and saw no action; Simms, the inactive third quarterback, came on to attempt a hail Mary pass on the game's final play. With all of the turmoil surrounding the Bucs' quarterback situation right now, Simms may well be the starter by the end of the season, but his time still appears at least two weeks away.
