Koetter: Jameis Winston re-injured shoulder at Buffalo

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston‘s injury to his throwing shoulder continues to hamper him, in part because he re-injured it last Sunday in Buffalo.

Via JoeBucsFan.com, Bucs coach Dirk Koetter revealed on SiriusXM NFL Radio that a sack-fumble in the second quarter against the Bills resulted in the re-injury. Koetter also said Winston has a bruised deltoid muscle.

Winston initially suffered the injury during the Week Six game at Arizona.

Koetter connected the re-injury to the fact that Winston didn’t throw in practice until Friday. He’s officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Panthers, but Koetter said Winston will start. Koetter said that team doctors do not believe the limited practice schedule will last for the rest of the season.

Regardless, the question after the season potentially becomes whether Winston will need surgery to repair the shoulder. Which then would put a cloud over his availability for the 2018 offseason program, training camp, and possibly beyond — as it has with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

  1. I thought so. There was a throw he made in the 3rd I believe where he rolled out of it to avoid contact, just looked awkward. What’s funny is he still throws a better ball with a bum throwing shoulder than Tyrod fully healthy…

  2. Well it looks like the Bucs will have to add a quarterback to their long list of needs in the next draft. Fitzpatrick is not the guy but he will have to do! The rest of the schedule includes all of the division rivals and the way we have been playing so far it dose not look good!

  3. Bucs need to shut down Winston, have him have his surgery and reston fresh for 2018. Let Fitzpatrick play out the season. They don’t even look like a 8-8 team, might as well throw in the towel. Just look at the Colts and Luck.

  4. If the Bucs drop to 2-5, I’d consider shutting him down for the year.

    Just look at the Colts and Andrew Luck. You don’t want that situation.

  5. Hopefully they shut him down and when he gets back next year he has some competent people coaching and in the GM role for him. Pretty close to Grigson/Pagano incompetence in that organization.

  6. Koetter is in over his head. Mike smith can’t coach out of a paper bag. McCoy is wasting his best years. David continues to shine. Jameis continues to ball. Why do I invest so much time into this pathetic team?
