 Latest Buccaneers Player Notes
Oct 19 2018 - Jameis Winston
  QB Jameis Winston will be playing in front of the home fans for the first time since the 2017 regular-season finale and told the Tampa Bay Times that he cannot wait to take the field at Raymond James Stadium. "I'm psyched to get back out there in Ray Jay," Winston said. "It's been a long time for me being in Ray Jay. We've got to bring home a win for them. Last time we were there it was Monday Night Football, and since then it's been like a month since we've been as a team in Ray Jay. It's definitely going to be exciting to be out there and get that whole atmosphere with the fans." The Buccaneers (2-3) need every edge they can get. They have lost three in a row following a 2-0 start to the season and played their last two on the road -- sandwiched around their bye week.

  QB Ryan Fitzpatrick has accepted his role with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers despite becoming the first quarterback in the NFL to throw for over 400 yards in three straight games. Jameis Winston was named the starting quarterback of the Buccaneers on Monday, thus relegating Fitzpatrick to a backup role. While Fitzpatrick didn't love the idea of ceding his starting job to Winston, he also knew what was at stake entering the season with Winston set to serve a three-game suspension. "What I said to my dad after how Week 1 went, and Week 2 and Week 3, was basically... 'I'm either gonna win the NFL MVP this year or I'll be back at the bench at some point.' That's just the reality of the situation," the 35-year-old Fitzpatrick said, per ESPN. "I wish I could still be out there but that's the way that it goes and I'll accept my role."

Winston had been suspended for the first three games for violating the NFL's policy on personal conduct, and Ryan Fitzpatrick started the first four games, including Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears. Winston replaced Koetter in the second half Sunday with the Bucs' trailing 38-3. The Bucs have a bye this week, so the team has two weeks to rest and prepare for the Falcons.


Oct 1 2018 - O.J. Howard
  TE O.J. Howard is expected to be sidelined two-to-four weeks with a sprained MCL, multiple media outlets reported on Monday. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the severity of the injury that Howard sustained to his left knee in the first half of the Buccaneers' 48-10 drubbing by the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

"It was different than throwing against nobody, but I belie\ve the guys that helped me prepare for this did a great job and I've just got to get back the feeling a little bit and be better."
