Koetter: QB Jameis Winston re-injured shoulder but will play

Jameis Winston re-injured his throwing shoulder against the Bills last week, head coach Dirk Koetter told Sirius XM radio. Koetter also said Winston will start this week against the Panthers.

Koetter mentioned Winston, who bruised the AC joint in his throwing shoulder against Arizona two weeks ago and had to leave the game, re-injured the same shoulder in the first half at Buffalo last Sunday.

“He played very well, especially in the second half against Buffalo,” Koetter said. “We did have that one sack-fumble in the first half and he kind of re-injured it.”

Koetter added Jameis also has a bruised deltoid muscle in his throwing shoulder. Koetter said this is why Jameis only threw in Friday’s practice this week.

Fantasy Impact: 

Tampa Bay will try to manage Winston's injury, but if it already knocked him out of one game this season, there is always a risk he could get hit and knocked out of another game. Injuries are part of the game though, and Winston has four straight 300-yard performances in games he's finished. He's a QB1 option again in Week 8.
