Jameis Winston (shoulder) expected to play again for Buccaneers this season

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter thinks quarterback Jameis Winston (shoulder) will return this season.

What It Means:

"From what I know, I do," Koetter said. "I know Jameis is planning on playing again and there's been no discussion between [general manager Jason Licht], myself of him not playing again. That would all be something that would have to come up in the future." Winston is out at least one more week, and it sounds like it could be longer than that. Ryan Fitzpatrick will start again in Week 12 versus the Miami Dolphins.

In eight games this season, Winston has completed 159-of-259 (61.4 percent) passes for 1,920 yards with 10 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. His 0.12 Passing Net Expected Points per drop back ranks 14th out of 32 quarterbacks with at least 200 drop backs on the year.
