Jameis Winston To Miss "A Couple Of Weeks" With Injured Shoulder

Jameis Winston To Miss

Ryan Fitzpatrick would be the team's starter without Winston, and Griffin would backup Fitzpatrick. Winston gave a freakish pregame speech, then left the game with the shoulder injury, then instigated a fight with New Orleans' Marshon Lattimore.

Winston required X-rays and an MRI after Sunday's loss to the Saints for the AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder along with a rear deltoid issue, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

This will be the first time in 40 career National Football League games that Winston will miss a start. In the game against Arizona, Fitzpatrick went 22-for-32 for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions while replacing Winston.

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

Winston completed 7-of-13 passes for 63 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions. Tampa Bay's bye week was supposed to land in Week 11, but Hurricaine Irma pushed it up to Week 1, when the Dolphins game was rescheduled. Still, Koetter felt he had to rest his franchise QB until the joint healed better with more rest. "I'm not doing a good job right now".

"Jameis had an MRI today and as a result of that MRI he's going to be out for the next couple weeks and we'll be activating Ryan Griffin to the 53-man roster this week at some point", said Koetter.
