Jameis Winston is close to returning


by

The Buccaneers should fight for a wild card spot and their star quarterback Jameis Winston could help them. 
 
NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported that Winston has received platelet-rich plasma treatments in his injured shoulder and could be returning soon.
 
"I'm told a couple weeks ago he had PRP injections — platelet-rich plasma treatment — in other words, blood spinning," Rapoport said. "[It is] something that is used often, especially by high-profile athletes, during rehab to quicken the recovery. It takes about two weeks to take hold for Winston. He does have an MRI on Monday and the team is holding out hope before saying anything. They want to find out the actual terms and what happens during the MRI, but I am told he feels great, looks great, and his return is coming."
 
Winston suffered the shoulder injury in Week 6 and aggravated it in Week 9. He had an MRI that revealed no structural damage. The problem is that the injury is to his throwing shoulder and it could be causing issues with pain management.
 
It seems the Buccaneers won't shut Winston down for the season. Along with the injury, the quarterback is under NFL investigation after a woman claimed he sexually assaulted her, but no disciplinary action is expected for him until next season.
