    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Inactive against Panthers

    Ryan Griffin (coach's decision) has been listed among the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' inactive players for Sunday's matchup against Carolina, per the team's official Twitter account.The 30-year-old signal-caller will not put on a uniform Sunday, as it will instead be former first-round pick Blaine Gabbert who serves as a backup behind Tom Brady. Griffin attempted the first four regular-season passes of his career last year for Tampa Bay, but with Gabbert in the mix, he's been moved to the inactive list for Sunday's intradivisional clash.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Minimal role in '19

    Ryan Griffin completed two of four passes for 18 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions across two appearances during the 2019 season. He also netted minus-1 yard on four rushes.As has been the case his entire career, Griffin's role was negligible, but he at least finally had an opportunity to see regular-season action for the first time in seven pro seasons. Griffin only was called in to handle a series for Jameis Winston during a Week 14 win over the Colts when the latter suffered what ultimately was determined to be a thumb fracture. Griffin otherwise played four snaps (but did not attempt a pass) at the end of a Week 15 blowout win over the Lions. Coach Bruce Arians certainly didn't seem to have any sense of urgency to afford Griffin game reps ahead of a potential starting job battle in 2020, even as Winston threw multiple interceptions in six of his last eight games. Therefore, it appears likely the veteran slots into a clear backup role again in 2020, assuming Winston is brought back on the franchise tag. However, if the team reverses course on its previously stated plans to have the 2015 first overall pick back under center next season, Griffin could potentially have an opportunity to make a play for the vacancy.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Finally sees regular-season action

    Ryan Griffin came into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 38-35 win over the Colts on Sunday with 12:02 remaining in the third quarter for an injured Jameis Winston (thumb) and completed two of four passes for 18 yards.Griffin had an opportunity to make a regular-season pass attempt for the first time in an NFL career that dates back to 2013, subbing for Winston to start the second half while the latter was having his injured hand evaluated. Griffin's stint in the contest only lasted one drive, with his two completions going to O.J. Howard (five yards) and Dare Ogunbowale (13 yards). Winston is expected to play through what has been diagnosed as a broken thumb, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports, but Griffin will stand at the ready should he be called to fill in at any point over the last three games of the season.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Will remain No. 2 QB

    Ryan Griffin will continue to be Jameis Winston's backup quarterback after Blaine Gabbert (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were holding out hope that Gabbert could make a return, but he was unable to recover. Griffin will be Winston's backup quarterback for the remainder of the season. Whenever Winston is under center, there's always a chance he falters and his backup is called upon, although he's played well enough to avoid any speculation thus far.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Throws pair of picks

    Ryan Griffin completed nine of 11 passes for 92 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 17-15 preseason win over the Cowboys on Thursday.Slated for the No. 2 quarterback job to at least start the season, Griffin saw some solid first-half action Thursday and was atypically guilty of multiple turnovers, albeit with asterisks attached. The first of Griffin's two interceptions was returned for a pick-six by Donovan Olumba but came off a tipped pass, while the second occurred at the Cowboys' 16-yard line on a pass intended for Scotty Miller. However, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that coach Bruce Arians emphasized postgame that Miller and several other receivers made errors in their routes on that play. Griffin was actually very sharp otherwise before ceding duties to Vincent Testaverde, and given his play overall this preseason, he projects as a competent short-term option behind Jameis Winston to open the campaign.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Leads another game-winning march

    Ryan Griffin completed 11 of 17 passes for 121 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 13-12 preseason win over the Browns on Friday. He also netted zero yards on his sole rush and fumbled once but recovered.With Blaine Gabbert exiting early in the second half with a separation of his non-throwing shoulder, Griffin stepped in for another dose of extended preseason action. Ultimately, he delivered in the closing minutes yet again, helming a mammoth 16-play, 72-yard drive that culminated in Matt Gay's game-winning 21-yard field goal. Late in the third quarter, Griffin had also been responsible for the Buccaneers' only touchdown of the contest when he fired a 20-yard scoring throw to tight end Jordan Leggett. With Gabbert now out an undetermined period, Griffin's chances of securing the top backup job likely have gone up, and he also appears set to see another solid dose of playing time in Thursday's preseason finale against the Cowboys.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Another impressive performance

    Ryan Griffin completed 14 of 21 passes for 201 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 16-14 preseason win over the Dolphins on Friday.Griffin capped off a second straight strong preseason effort by helping set up Matt Gay's game-winning 48-yard field goal, notching a pair of completions to tight end Tanner Hudson to get the ball down to the Dolphins' 27-yard line. The veteran could hardly have made a better case for himself over the first two exhibitions, quickly demonstrating his grasp of coach Bruce Arians' offense. That's a particularly important development in Griffin's competition with Blaine Gabbert, considering the latter's one primary advantage coming into the offseason was prior experience in Arians' system. Griffin could potentially seal the backup job with a third straight productive effort when the Buccaneers face off with the Browns next Friday.

    Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Eclipses 300-yard mark in opener

    Ryan Griffin completed 26 of 43 passes for 330 yards with a touchdown and no interceptions in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' 30-28 preseason loss to the Steelers on Friday. He also lost a fumble.Griffin had no shortage of opportunity to showcase his skills, and he capitalized on the platform to demonstrate a solid grasp of coach Bruce Arians' offense. Game script worked in Griffin's favor as well, as the Buccaneers were in a trail position throughout the second half and continued throwing the ball until their final snap. Griffin particularly displayed excellent chemistry with undrafted rookie receiver Spencer Schnell and second-year tight end Tanner Hudson, with whom he connected for 14 of his completions, including several chunk plays down the stretch. Griffin's bid for the No. 2 role behind Jameis Winston certainly got off to a good start, but veteran Blaine Gabbert, who had a head start on Griffin with respect to familiarity with Arians' system, is likely to serve as formidable competition for the duration of preseason.
