Ryan Fitzpatrick to start Week 10 for Buccaneers

Coincidentally, the Jets' starter will be former Bucs quarterback Josh McCown.

Winston originally injured the shoulder last month, but aggravated the injury in a loss to the Saints on Sunday.

Winston initially sustained an AC joint sprain in his right shoulder in a 38-33 loss at the Arizona Cardinals on October 15.

Fitzpatrick will make his first start of the season against the team he started 27 games for from 2015-17. The AC joint sprain has caused Winston to miss practice time ever since, typically preventing him from throwing most days leading up to games.

Winston completed 7-of-13 passes for 63 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.

Before this week, Winston had only thrown one day a week because of the injury. Fitzpatrick stepped in for Winston against the Cardinals, throwing three touchdowns and two interceptions. Evans will be subject to league discipline for the event, but Winston defended his reaction after Lattimore pushed him.

Winston had X-rays on his shoulder following Sunday's loss and no new damage was detected. That's my job. I have to do that.

"Jameis had an MRI today and as a result of that MRI he's going to be out for the next couple weeks and we'll be activating Ryan Griffin to the 53-man roster this week at some point", said Koetter.

Winston injured the shoulder in Arizona on October 15th.
