The Buccaneers are shutting down starting quarterback Jameis Winston for a few weeks due to an ongoing shoulder injury.



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.
