Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston will miss his third straight game Sunday as he continues to deal with a right shoulder injury, but there may be some positive news on the injury front in the near future.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Winston had platelet rich plasma injections in his shoulder a couple of weeks ago and that he has shown improvement of late. He’s set for an MRI on Monday and there’s optimism that the results will push him closer to a return to the lineup.

The Buccaneers have won two straight games with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback and head into Sunday’s game against the Falcons with a chance to improve to 5-6 on the season if they can make it three in a row. Whether a win would factor into a decision to put Winston back in the lineup remains to be seen and the MRI results would obviously play a big role in any decision.

While Winston’s on-field status should be known sooner rather than later, the league’s investigation into his off-field actions will likely take longer to be completed. Winston has been accused of groping an Uber driver and the league has confirmed it is reviewing the matter.

  1. I’m on pins and needles over Winston’s status. He has carried this Bucs team to their rightful record. Can’t wait for next year’s prediction of possible Super Bowl to heat up here in a few months. Eat those Ws Jameis…nom nom nom

  2. Man up you sissy and go out and play the game. Lombardi would kick you butt off the team or have you do laps around Lambeau stadium you soft POS. No one cares if you are is about to drop off its football man football.

  3. Winston should have been pulled from the Cardinals game when he first got hurt. They left him in a bit and then he played in Buffalo (a game he won until the Defense gave Tyrod Taylor a TD in 46 second wit 2min left) and New Orleans. Never should have played injured.

    Winston had over 4k yards first two seasons, with a bad line and running game in 2016. This year the OL, DL and running game are pathetic.

    The GM Jason Licht has made horrible decisions like K- Aguayo, losing RB-McNichols, K-Nick Folk, drafting a TE when they have gapping holes on both Lines and no running game. They kept Drug Martin after his PEDs offense @ $7mill a year when his contract had an out clause for drug violations. This team has not been well served by the front office, period.

    Winston is good, but he can’t compnsate for missing 7-9 points a game in missed kicks (Folk), no running game and no QB pressure from the DLine. Stats speak for themselves. Let Winston heal up and when ready bring him back. He’s good, he’s very young and will get better on and off the field.

  4. Inject the Rapist Winston with every drug possible so he feels no pain.

    And then let nature take its toll as he ruins his shoulder in the process.
