In the three games since, though cleared medically, he has taken further hits, aggravating the injury, initially diagnosed as a sprained AC joint. Tampa Bay's bye week was supposed to land in Week 11, but Hurricaine Irma pushed it up to Week 1, when the Dolphins game was rescheduled. Quarterback Drew Brees played brilliantly, completing 22 of 27 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns for a stellar 131.9 passer rating, and rookie running back Alvin Kamara accounted for two touchdowns and 152 yards from scrimmage on 17 touches.

"We're too talented to be 2-6", Evans said.

This team is just getting better and better. The duo combined for three catches for 38 yards.

Evans was not ejected for the hit, and Lattimore was happy that he wasn't.

I realize Winston is only 23-years-old, is gutting it out on a bum shoulder, and while I give him credit for trying to play through it - even though I was disappointed with recent actions - trust me, nobody has been a bigger supporter of his than me.

New Orleans widened its lead to 9-0 when rookie cornerback Justin Hardee exploded through the middle of the Bucs' punt blocking team to easily block Bryan Anger's punt at the Tampa Bay 20.


As quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick gets ready to make his first start as a Buccaneer. "We have to try".

After a 384 yard, three touchdown passing game against the Buffalo Bills, Winston threw for 210 yards and no touchdowns at home against the Carolina Panthers. He was standing on the sideline in the third quarter when he walked up and poked New Orleans Saints defender Marshon Lattimore in the back of the head.

Winston, who had pointed a finger against Lattimore's helmet, said he told Lattimore to go to his sideline.

"I just let my emotions get the best of me", he said. I was willing to look past many of his mistakes at FSU, and I applaud him for staying out of trouble since he has put on a Bucs uniform. "I saw (Lattimore) pick a fight with my quarterback".

Winston had X-rays on his shoulder following Sunday's loss and no new damage was detected. "I hate losing. Do you hate losing?"

Saints left tackle Terron Armstead took himself out of the game with a chest injury late in the first half, but said after the game that he was hurt on his first play and tried to play through it. "It's something that we are going to have to handle internally, but we are going to handle it".
