Buccaneers shut down QB Winston for 'couple weeks'

Bucs have few sacks Saints don't allow them

Bucs have few sacks Saints don't allow them

Koetter made the announcement after doctors examined the results of an MRI on Winston's right shoulder. The top overall pick of the 2015 draft then aggravated the injury in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

"Right now, they're saying at least two weeks".

Winston initially sustained an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder in a 38-33 loss at the Arizona Cardinals on October 15. Fitzpatrick stepped in for Winston against the Cardinals, throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who replaced Winston in the Saints game, will take over at quarterback for the next few weeks. 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.

Defensive end William Gholston, meanwhile, suffered a neck injury in the third quarter and didn't return.

1 killed, 2 injured in Chicago shooting
Kendra Nance, 26, who lives in the neighborhood, was walking at Broadway and Lawrence when she heard four shots. The second man and the boy were also shot while the attacker was aiming at him, according to Buslik.

Before this week, Winston had only thrown one day a week because of the injury.

This will be the first time in 40 career National Football League games that Winston will miss a start.

Tampa is expected to activate Ryan Griffin from injured reserve this week and would carry three quarterbacks on the roster.
