    Buc on the Move

    Wonder if Jameis Will be ruled out, or simply not start and be held in reserve if he can’t go Sunday?

    Are we really going to roll into a game with Fitzpatrick at the helm and Humphries as the backup? If it is just a matter of playing through pain, my guess is Jameis gets the start.

    1. 1.1


      For strategic reason alone I would be shocked if he’s ruled out. Plus is Griffin even cleared all the way?

      At any rate you want to keep the Bills uncertain about who going to start.

      I think Winston will start if he’s not doing well they will pull him. This isn’t the kind of pain that easy to deal with because it goes from nothing to intense depending on if he puts pressure on the injured area. On some throws there may be no pain at all on other it’s sharp and intense. Just going by the replay and how he landed it likely will hurt as he extends back and right as he releases. It all comes down to his pain tolerance and how much pain he feels, at very least it will be a detraction for him.

      Honestly the QB position isn’t my biggest concern going into this game. Fitz show he’s good enough, the defense on the otherhand is on the fast track to worst in league. We are nearly there vs the pass and we were scorched last week vs the run. This is a statistically better team that we are facing and I don’t feel good about our chances. We have under performed this whole season so far.

    This is a really tough call to make. I’d say after his performance last week, let’s roll with Fitz and have Jameis ready to go on the sideline just in case. I’d hate to see Jameis go out there and get injured further and be sidelined for a longer period.

    Fitz showed against Arizona that he is a capable backup. Let Jameis rest up and be back at 100% hopefully in a week.

    He should give it a rest and time to heal.
