Ankle injury not expected to keep Bucs' Jameis Winston out of opener
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said Monday rookie quarterback Jameis Winston is dealing with a sprained right ankle, according to The Tampa Tribune

While the injury is not expected to keep Winston from starting the season opener against the Titans, Koetter admitted the ankle injury is having a negative impact on his play. 

“It’s affecting him a little bit,” Koetter said. “If you’ve ever had (a sprained ankle) and had to move around and cut and plant, it can be painful. But it’s easily something he can get through. He’ll be ready to go. He’ll be full-speed by Tennessee. It’s not anything he can’t play on.”

by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

The Lions have reportedly made a deal with the Buccaneers to acquire tight end Timothy Wright, in exchange for rookie kicker Kyle Brindza according to NFL Insider Ian Rapoport and confirmed by both teams. 

Wright had re-joined the Bucs after a season in New England in which he caught 26 passes and six touchdowns. Now, he will join a crowded tight end field in Detroit, where Joseph Fauria, Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew are in the mix.

Bucs WR Mike Evans (hamstring) targeting Week 1 return
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans, who sustained a hamstring injury in the second preseason game against the Bengals, is targeting a Week 1 return.

Evans said if it were the regular season, he would play this week. However, he said resting is the way to go to make sure he is 100 percent by the Sept. 13 opener against the Titans.

"I think it’s smart," Evans said of sitting the final two preseason games, per ESPN.com. "There’s nothing to risk. I’ve already proved myself and I’m just trying to get back for Week 1."

One benefit of playing the last two games would be to get more work with rookie quarterback Jameis Winston. However, Evans said building rapport is not an issue.

"I’ve had enough," Evans said. "We’ll be ready for Week 1. We’re both professionals."

Evans had a pretty strong rookie campaign, totaling 68 catches for 1,051 yards and 12 touchdowns. However, he is expecting better things in 2015 because of Winston's arrival and his new role in coordinator Dirk Koetter's offense.

"I’m just so much more comfortable with this offense," Evans said. "There are a lot of plays to be made in this offense. I’m playing the X this year. I like it more and I’ll get more opportunities."
