The decision comes the day after a 30-10 loss in New Orleans to the Saints in which Winston re-injured himself in the third quarter.
Prior to the injury, he was 7-13 with 67 yards. Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick played the remainder of the game.
QB Ryan Griffin will also be activated.
Winston initially sustained the injury nearly a month ago.
The Bucs have a 2-6 record this season and will take on the New York Jets this week.
