Jameis Winston Exits Game With Shoulder Injury, Replaced By Ryan Fitzpatrick

The altercation started because Jameis Winston, who had left the game due to an injury, poked Marshon Lattimore in the back of the helmet, which led to Lattimore giving Winston a bit of a push.

Koetter made the announcement after doctors examined the results of an MRI on Winston's right shoulder.

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

It will be the first missed start for Winston, who started all 40 games since the Buccaneers used the first pick of the 2015 National Football League draft on him.

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

Winston has struggled for the 2-6 Bucs this year, passing for 1,920 yards with 10 touchdowns, six interceptions, and five fumbles.

Winston's production has also dropped as the injury lingered. Ryan Fitzpatrick, who replaced Winston in the Saints game, will take over at quarterback for the next few weeks.

On Sunday, Winston completed 7-of-13 for 63 yards with no touchdowns or no interceptions.

The third quarterback on the Bucs roster, Ryan Griffin, is eligible to come off the team's injured reserve list.
