In the loss to the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston re-injured his shoulder. He had previously injured his shoulder in Week 6 against the Arizona Cardinals. In the game he sprained his AC joint in his throwing arm.

In the game against the Saints, he threw 7-for-13 for 67 yards before being sidelined with an injury.

Back-up quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick filled in for Winston after he went down. In Week 6, Fitzpatrick threw for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. In the game against the Saints, he didn’t have the same production. He only threw for 68 yards and a touchdown while running for 30 yards on three tries.

It’s unclear if Winston will miss extended time. He was seen on the sideline after his injury. He instigated a fight with Saints’ rookie Marshon Lattimore, who was blindsided by wide receiver Mike Evans as the two where talking back and forth.

There was a sideline scuffle, where punches were thrown on both sides. Winston was in the wrong for leaving the bench and pointing at Lattimore. Evans reacted after Lattimore pushed Winston.

The Bucs ultimately lost the game 30-10, falling to 2-6 on the season.
