TAMPA , Fla. (AP) throwing shoulder in practice and will start Sunday’s game against the Buffalo Bills. Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter made the announcement Friday after the third-year quarterback worked with the first-team offense for the first time since spraining his right shoulder during last week’s 38-33 loss at Arizona. Winston was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday, taking ”mental reps” while backup Ryan Fitzpatrick prepared to face the Bills. ”Jameis threw the ball well today,” Koetter said following the team’s hour-long practice at One Buccaneer Place. ”Jameis is our starter. He will be out there.” Winston has made 37 consecutive starts after entering the NFL as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 draft. Fitzpatrick, a 13-year veteran with 116 career starts for six other teams Gary Jennings Jr. Jersey , replaced him against the Cardinals and threw for 290 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions to help the Bucs (2-3) rally from a 31-0 deficit. Winston said Thursday there have been other occasions during ”my whole football career” when he’s played through AC joint injuries, ”so I’m used to the pain.” He declined to elaborate or compare the latest injury to the others. ”Every one is different. I can’t tell you about my injuries eight years ago,” Winston said. ”I can just tell you about this one.” Winston also said he wasn’t concerned about a lack of practice time potentially impacting his preparation for the Bills. ”Like I’ve said , this game (has) such a mental part. I’ve been throwing the football practically my whole life, so I know I can throw,” Winston said. ”I just think that it’s about recovery right now. ”It’s about being consistent in my reads and progressions. That’s the most important thing.” — Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley was strapped to a backboard and carted off the field after taking a shot to the top of his head in the third quarter of Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos.Conley was trying to wrestle Broncos running back Royce Freeman to the ground when teammate Jonathan Abram hit Freeman out-of-bounds. In the collision, Abram spun around and his left thigh careened into the top of Conley’s head.Conley remained stationary on the ground as he was tended to by medical staff. They removed the facemask from his helmet and immobilized him to protect against any further injury before loading him onto a cart and taking him from the field. Conley did raise a thumb in the air as the cart began its departure from the playing surface.The concern over such a collision would be related to any possible neck or spinal cord damage. Hopefully the safety measures prove to be precautionary only and Conley comes away from the collision healthy.
