BREAKING: Jameis Winston To Miss "A Couple Of Weeks" With Injured Shoulder

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are considering shutting down quarterback Jameis Winston for a couple of weeks in order to allow him to fully heal from the shoulder injury he's dealing with, according to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.

Winston has been dealing with an AC joint sprain and a rear deltoid issue and missed the second half of their loss to the Saints on Sunday after re-aggravating the injury. He originally suffered the injury in a Week 6 loss to the Cardinals.

Tampa is expected to activate Ryan Griffin from injured reserve this week and would carry three quarterbacks on the roster. Ryan Fitzpatrick would be the team's starter without Winston, and Griffin would backup Fitzpatrick.

Winston has struggled for the 2-6 Bucs this year, passing for 1,920 yards with 10 touchdowns, six interceptions, and five fumbles.
