Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Dirk Koetter announced the team will shut down quarterback Jameis Winston for a 'several weeks' due to his shoulder issues.

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times first reported word of the Buccaneers' plans.

Winston is dealing with an "AC joint sprain and a rear deltoid issue" and had both X-rays and an MRI on his shoulder after Sunday's 30-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Winston didn't play in the second half after reaggravating the injury, which also knocked him out of action in the team's Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.

Winston said after the game that doctors made the decision to sit him down, per Tom Pelissero of NFL Network
