The Ryan Fitzpatrick reunion will have to wait. Jameis Winston will start Sunday for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, coach Dirk Koetter said Friday.
Winston had not thrown all week in practice after suffering a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
"Jameis threw the ball well today," Koetter said. "He'll be our starter. Jameis is our starter. He'll be out there."

And Winston wanted to make sure there were no doubts in the mind of the local media. He whizzed a pass at a bunch of reporters and cameramen, hitting a tripod.
So Winston, seeing every single media member with their camera phones out, decided to show us up close & personal that his shoulder is fine. pic.twitter.com/FF5rmg0xnd
