  • Bucs' QB Winston Out At Least 2 Weeks With Shoulder Injury

Winston gave a freakish pregame speech, then left the game with the shoulder injury, then instigated a fight with New Orleans' Marshon Lattimore.

Winston suffered a sprained AC joint in the shoulder of his right throwing arm three weeks ago against the Arizona Cardinals.

Winston's production has also dropped as the injury lingered. He's thrown 10 touchdowns but six interceptions, totaling 1,920 yards through the season's first half.

Bucs coach Dirk Koetter told reporters on Monday Winston is facing a spell out of action, with Ryan Fitzpatrick to replace him as the starter against the New York Jets this weekend.

Fitzpatrick, 34, completed 8 of 15 passes for 68 yards and a touchdown in relief of Winston on Sunday. "I'm not doing a good job right now".

The Buccaneers will activate Ryan Griffin from injured reserve to serve as Fitzpatrick's backup until Winston is ready to resume football activities. But if the Bucs keep losing, the smart move - especially in light of Andrew Luck's two-year shoulder pain landing him on IR this season for the Indianapolis Colts - might be to shut Winston down entirely for 2017.
