At a time when it’s widely believed that Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston may miss only a couple of weeks with an injured shoulder, the team’s General Manager says fans should be bracing for something longer than that.
Via Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Jason Licht said on the team’s pre-game radio show that “[t]his may be an extended period of time” for Winston, adding that “there is no timeline on this.”
Winston initially injured the shoulder four weeks ago, and he aggravated it the following week. He injured it again last week in a loss to the Saints, exiting at halftime. Licht said, however, that a new injury did not occur last weekend, the story said. At 2-6 heading into this week, there may not be a rush to bring back Winston.
