Tampa, Fla.-(Newsradio 970 WFLA)-Jameis Winston's shoulder injury may not be severe enough to keep him out of the game at Buffalo this coming Sunday. Winston hurt his throwing shoulder in a rough tackle during the Buccaneer's 38 to 33 loss at Arizona.

Preliminary x-rays came up negative.  A new MRI shows Winston suffered an AC joint sprain. Word is that injury is something Jameis may be able to play through.  That could mean that Winston may be ready to start Sunday in Buffalo.

Backup quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick replaced Winston in Arizona and ended up with 290 yards and three touchdowns.
