Jameis Wearing A Soft Cast

December 10th, 2019


It seems Mr. Entertainment, America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston, visited a hand specialist yesterday to get a second opinion of his bum right thumb, and precautions have been put into motion.

Bucs sources told Jenna Laine of ESPN that the team is “optimistic” Jameis can finish the season with the injury.

Now last night Jameis was at Mike Evans’ charity bowling event and Joe received texts that Jameis was in some sort of cast for his right hand. Eduardo Encina of the Tampa Bay Times noted on Twitter, with photographic evidence, Jameis had what looks to be a soft cast on his right hand.

But he was able to pull a Pat Mahomes and bowl left-handed.

Though the reports seem to indicate this is not a major injury, it still bears monitoring as the Bucs prepare to travel to Detroit for their final road game of the season.

    Hope it heals up good.

  2. SB Says:

    I would say I wish he were wearing it yesterday if I wasn’t a fan since ’76.
    He knocked me out of one of my money leagues but he won MY BUCS a game!!!!
    I care more about my team than my FF team.
    I hope all of the Jameis haters get to see R4G
    People in the know here know that I am one of the only Gators fan that supported the Jameis drafting.
    He is what he is.
    We are still not sure what that is.
    However RG4 looms on the horizon maybe.

  3. TampaTown Says:

    I say only let him play if there’s no risk of further damage to his thumb from taking the snap and throwing the ball. Yes, there’s always a risk of any injury you trolls, not what I’m talking about.

    Sh!t I forgot the !

    Joe you’re killing the h8ters with all those flattering monikers lol

  6. SteelStudBuc Says:

    U see the Twitter comments on that tweet?!?
    Hes a punch line. Aside from 2 or 3 picks every game hes pretty good but damn… the public opinion on him is loud and clear.

  7. catcard202 Says:

    At this point in the story, a mindful GM / Coaching Staff that was secure in their future with the franchise and sold on giving their soon-to-be FA Franchise QB a new long-term deal; would set JW3 on the shelf until the thumb is 100% – even if that’s 2020.

  8. Rod Munch Says:

    If Winston can throw the ball, you know he’s gonna play. Really just depends on his grib. The worst thing he could do is go out there, not really be able to put any zip on the ball. I’d also really be worried if his agent is in his ear telling him to take a seat on the bench as literally millions of dollars could be lost if he plays poorly these last 3 games. BUT, millions more can be made if he finishes out the year with 2 or 3 more victories…

    Tough call.

    Your mom wears a soft cast.

  10. Sport Says:

    I’m fairly confident JW is back next year, not sure the contractual arrangement or $’s, but it is what it is. The dude is prolific, in both good and bad.

    The question I have is, who will back him up? Will he have genuine competition?
    Joes Boy Andy?
    Carr (Gruden will probably move on if they keep losing)?
    Luck (out of retirement to reunite with BA)?
    Draft a guy and let this coaching staff work with him?
    And holy he!!, what if Griff starts the last few and lights it up with a busted oline and no ME13?

    Ooooohhhh Boy!

    In BA I Trust!

    I see an excuse coming for interceptions, already

  12. 1sparkybuc Says:

    For me, “Lock Him Up” at this moment in time, fits in both sports and politics. Washington, San Francisco, and Baltimore have all won league championships with QBs we didn’t see fit to keep. Jameis Winston is far superior to two of them. Steve Young is in a class by himself. Continue to build the team around him, and Jameis will win a SB with the Bucs. Jameis would easily have won a SB with the ‘79 Bucs. Doug Williams couldn’t manage a single TD against the Rams in the NFCC game. No QB could ever win with the team Steve Young had to deal with. Jon Gruden would have never been hired because Tony Dungy would have never been fired, if he had Jameis as his QB. Through all these years on garbage teams, Jameis has never stopped trying. He has never laid down and quit. With a defense finally showing signs of getting good, it’s not the time to start all over with a rookie. This is Jameis’s team.

  13. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Isn’t that his groping hand? (I just couldn’t help it)

  14. Bucsfanman Says:

    I’d rather him play than RG4! I don’t get why there’s a group of fans out there who seem to think that the guy who’s ridden the pine his ENTIRE career is somehow a better option than Winston.
    It’s like the trade ‘player X’ for draft picks argument. He might be a permanent fixture on the bench for a reason. Don’t you think?!

  15. orlbucfan Says:

    Is Fameis naturally right or left handed? Serious question, no snark. BA is going to have to hog-tie him down if Arians makes him miss the Lions game. JW is already making millions$$$, he’d rather play ball.

  16. Doctor Stroud Says:

    The soft cast is clearly part of the entertainment. It keeps the opponents, pundits, and fan guessing.

  17. BucsFanSince1976 Says:

    Listen up Sparkolator- Doug Williams was the ish defore that phrase even existed. Were you even FREAKING BORN IN 1979??????????????

    Doug Williams left the NFC Championship with a torn bicep early in the 3rd quarter and was unable to return , not to mention that John McKays offensive mindset was Ricky Bell Toss sweeps on 1st and 2nd down and then let Doug throw , but only if necessary. DW was the best QB in the history of this franchise and was run out of town by a racist owner whose demise I celebrated.

    So Sparkapotamus , you just stay the phuck off Doug Williams , because you do not know enough about it to make any comment on it.

  18. Bucsfanman Says:

    ’76- I think it’s funny that people minimize Doug’s accomplishments. Here’s some fun trivia:

    Name one WR not named Jimmy Giles on that 1979 championship team.

  19. Hodad Says:

    You would think by now they’d know what they’re going to do with Jameis, and are three more prove it games going to make a difference? If we were in a playoff race I’d say play him, but being out of the playoffs now would be a good time to see what you have in Grif.

  20. Pewter power Says:

    Ok sop so he injured his hands in the game, missed a series and came back in that same game but people are wondering if he’ll play the next Sunday? It’s worth monitoring because media desperately needs something different to talk about. This dude will play the rest of the year.

  21. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Man these posters wanting to see “what we have with Griffin.” FFS he has been mostly a third string QB most of his career. If freaking Blaine Gabbert hadn’t been hurt he would be in street clothes on Sundays. I know what we have, a back up at best QB. If you think he is going to come in Sunday without Evans and no running game and put up a 40 spot you are a fool.

    I would bet my house that they have already made up their mind on Jameis and he will be back in 2020.

  22. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    Clueless Joe who doesn’t have a competitive bone in his body probably thinks they should shut down Jameis

  23. DooshLaRue Says:

    Don’t start RG4.
    If he plays well JayMiss’s delicate psyche will suffer irrefutable damage.

  24. Bucsfanman Says:

    I had to look it up myself! Point being, Doug WAS the offense!
    So, to flip 1sparky’s argument, Doug Williams could have easily taken these Buccaneers to the playoffs with these WRs.
    Look at what he did in one half of football with the “Skins!

  25. 813bucboi Says:

    what happened to mahommes this year?….

    didnt he have a calf injury….chiefs thought it was ok for him to play and he ended up injuring his knee cap…..

    at this point why play him with an injury?…..i understand “creating a winning culture” but at what cost?….

    i’d shut him down….would hate for him or any other starters get seriously injured at DET vs a player fighting to make the team next year….

    we should have the next man up mentality…..

    GO BUCS!!!!!

  26. Sharthappens Says:

    Early Xmas present for all Bucs fans. The retard is done for the year. Let’s all rally behind Griffin.

  27. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Shart you can have your 3rd stringer QB. When he is released after this season you can follow him to whatever team he lands with. It may be the XFL but that’s ok, he is your boy now.

  28. Cgmaster27 Says:

    @bucsfanman its the same dumb people who were part of the glennon mob that want rg out there. I hope he does so we can watch him bomb so they can stfu about him playing.

  29. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Doug Williams scored 73 tds in 67 games over a five year span. Just barely one td a game. His career completion percentage was 47.4. His QBR with the Bucs was 69.7. In his best season he threw 24 interceptions…1979. He was one of only two Buccaneer QBs to throw the ball out of bounds on 4th down to stop the clock, but the only one to do it with time running out at the end of the game. The Bucs a Defense for the Ages and a solid offense, but Doug had a million dollar arm and a ten cent head. He threw every pass like he was daring the receiver to catch it. McCay let him get away with it. If McCay had kicked his ass instead of kissing it, we might have won something. Jameis is superior to Doug in any comparison possible.

  30. Bucsfanman Says:

    1sparky- It’s tough to compare QBs from different eras. In 5 years as TBs QB Doug had ONE thousand yard WR in 1981 by Kevin House, the only NOTABLE WR on any of Doug’s rosters. The Culverhouses were notorious cheap-skates and blatantly racist. The Culverhouses were never going to put talent around Doug to help him succeed.

  31. 1sparkybuc Says:

    Jameis never has had a completion percentage of 37 in a single game. Doug had that for an entire season. No other QB anywhere has come even close to that.
