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.

Jags’ Ramsey had to be restrained

Bengals receiver A.J. Green and Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey were thrown off the field for fighting during Sunday’s game, but the fight almost continued after that.

After they were escorted off the field, Ramsey was reportedly looking for Green and had to be restrained from going into the Bengals’ locker room to re-start the fight.


Morris on Hall of Fame ballot

Former stars Steve Garvey, Jack Morris and Tommy John and longtime players’ union chief Marvin Miller are among the 10 names on the ballot for a Hall of Fame election next month.

The candidates were announced Monday. Results will be released on Dec. 10 at the baseball winter meetings in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.

Don Mattingly, Dale Murphy, Dave Parker, Ted Simmons, Luis Tiant and Alan Trammell also are eligible on the Modern Baseball Era ballot, which recognizes those whose biggest contributions came from 1970-87.


Iowa’s Nicholas Baer breaks finger

Iowa forward Nicholas Baer, the Big Ten’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, could miss up to a month after breaking his left pinky finger.

The Hawkeyes announced on Monday that Baer suffered the injury in practice over the weekend. Baer won’t need surgery, but he’ll have to sit for 3-to-4 weeks.

Baer averaged team highs in rebounding (5.8), steals (1.4) and blocked shots (1.3) per game in 2016-17.


Tourney organizers apologize for draw

Female models provocatively revealed the letters A or B when they were picked by the male tennis players. One model pulled up her dress to reveal an A on her thigh.

The draw ceremony for the Next Gen Finals was supposed to highlight Milan’s status in the fashion industry.

Instead, the ATP was accused of being sexist.

Two-time Grand Slam champion Amelie Mauresmo tweeted, “Disgrace,” and Andy Murray’s mother, Judy, added, “Awful.”

A day after the ceremony, the ATP and tournament sponsor Red Bull apologized on Monday.
