Winston to miss at least 2 weeks
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are shutting down quarterback Jameis Winston for at least 2 weeks in hopes the condition of his injured throwing shoulder improves.
The third-year quarterback sat out the second half of Sunday’s 30-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints after being sacked late in the second quarter and landing on the shoulder he initially hurt at Arizona on Oct. 15.
The first overall pick in the 2015 draft has made 40 consecutive starts to begin his NFL career. That streak will end Sunday, when the Bucs (2-6) will try to end a five-game skid with Ryan Fitzpatrick replacing Winston against the Jets.
