GLENDALE, Az. – Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston was pulled from Sunday’s against the Cardinals game after he suffered a right shoulder injury early in the first quarter. His return was listed as doubtful.

Winston took a hard hit while rolling out to his right in attempt to complete a third-down pass on the team’s first drive and came up from the ground exercising the shoulder.

He returned to the game after testing the shoulder on the sidelines but in his last series he threw the ball away twice before watching a pass for tight end Cameron Brate fall incomplete because of a drop.

The Bucs were trailing 24-0 at the time Winston was replaced by Ryan Fitzpatrick so it’s possible Winston was pulled more or less as a precautionary measure.

Winston was 5-for-10 for 61 yards when he was pulled in the second quarter.
