Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston has AC joint sprain

Making matters worse for Tampa Bay, starting quarterback Jameis Winston exited the game with a right shoulder injury.

"Yeah, of course. You don't want anybody to be hurt", Koetter said. You don't want your quarterback to be hurt.

Fresh off a Week 6 bye, the Bills will host the Buccaneers at New Era Field in hopes of bouncing back from a Week 5 loss to the Bengals. Everybody saw the clip of what happened to Aaron Rodgers. Rapoport adds it is an injury he may be able to play through, but the diagnosis throws his availability for this week against the Bills up into the air.

Koetter gave indication that Ryan Fitzpatrick will get all the first team reps in practice Wednesday for the Bucs, while Winston takes another day to rest his throwing arm. He has finished all but three, including Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals after he suffered a shoulder injury on the first series.

"The way I understand it, he will be cleared medically to play". I think it will be does Jameis feel like he can play at the level he needs to play at. "Obviously, the number-one thing in all of this is that Jameis's long-term health has to be the number-one thing".
