Jameis Winston suffers hand injury against Colts
Jameis Winston began the second half of Sunday’s game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts on the sideline, but he apparently was not benched for struggling to protect the football once again.
The Bucs announced early in the second half that Winston was questionable to return with an injury to his throwing hand. Veteran backup Ryan Griffin took his place.
There was speculation that Winston was benched by head coach Bruce Arians, which would not have been shocking. Winston threw two interceptions in the first half, one of which the Colts returned for a touchdown. That brought his total to a whopping 22 interceptions on the season.
Tampa Bay already lost wide receiver Mike Evans earlier in the game when he came up lame on a long touchdown catch. Depending upon how serious both injuries are, the Bucs could be shorthanded going forward.
