Bucs QB Jameis Winston (thumb) was limited in Wednesday's practice. QB Rya Griffin took all the 1st-team reps, according to insider Rick Stroud. Winston played through this injury last week and is still expected to play against the Lions on Sunday. But his status is worth monitoring over the next few days.
Bucs HC Dirk Koetter said QB Ryan Griffin could get some snaps in Sunday's finale against the Falcons. "The guy's been here for three years," Koetter said. "He's worked his tail off ... I think Ryan Griffin is a really good quarterback. He tears it up in practice everyday, but he's never had the chance to prove it in a real game." Griffin has never appeared in a regular season game but completed 68% of his passes with 4 TDs and 0 INTs this preseason. He's not a Week 17 fantasy option, but this news obviously adds risk to QB Jameis Winston's profile.
