Bucs may be without Winston versus Bills

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, woefully deficient away from home this season, already were facing a stiff challenge heading into Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field. Now they might be forced to play without quarterback Jameis Winston.

The Buccaneers (2-3) lost Winston to a sprained shoulder joint in a 38-33 loss against the Arizona Cardinals, when they fell behind 31-0 early in the third quarter. Bucs coach Dirk Koetter has not ruled out Winston as Sunday's starter, but the third-year player has been limited at practice, leaving most of the work for veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, who has made 116 NFL starts.

The Bills (3-2), whose hold on first place in the AFC East slipped away during their bye week, said they are preparing for both quarterbacks.
