Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Out 'weeks' with injured shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dirk Koetter said Griffin (shoulder) will miss "weeks" recovering, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Fortunately, Griffin won't require surgery. However, his absence opens the door for Ryan Fitzpatrick to solidify himself as the backup to Jameis Winston, with Sefo Liufau set to operate as the No. 3 signal caller for the remainder of the preseason.

Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Injures shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin left Friday's preseason matchup against the the Bengals after injuring his shoulder, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Griffin had taken a handful of tough hits before leaving the game. The 27-year-old had completed four passes on nine attempts for 57 yards prior to departing. Ryan Fitzpatrick figures to remain under center the rest of the way. The two are competing for the backup quarterback role, and were both expected to see plenty of action Friday. Griffin was thought to have held a slight edge in the competition heading into the evening. Consider him day-to-day until more information is made available.

Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Slated to see extended playing time Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is slated to see plenty of work in Friday's preseason opener against the Bengals, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "Griff is throwing the ball great, number one," said head coach Dirk Koetter. "He's really throwing it smooth right now. In this first game, the 'ones' aren't going to play a ton and so we're going to give Fitz and Griff reps both with the 'twos' and 'threes.'"

Griffin and veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick have been battling for the No. 2 job behind starter Jameis Winston in camp, and that competition is likely to go throughout the duration of preseason. With the starters not expected to go long in Friday's contest, both Griffin and Fitzpatrick are likely to put in a quarter-plus of work at a minimum. Griffin is getting more reps in this year's training camp as opposed to the prior two, considering that he's a legitimate contender for the primary backup job for the first time.

Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: In heated battle for backup job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin remains in a hotly-contested battle with Ryan Fitzpatrick for the No. 2 quarterback job, Jenna Laine of reports.

The gap in experience between Griffin and Fitzpatrick couldn't be wider, with the latter having logged 126 games over 11 seasons and the former never having thrown a pass in NFL regular-season game. However, Griffin has reportedly been holding his own and even outperforming Fitzpatrick at times as they both split time with the second and third teams. Head coach Dirk Koetter has previously stated that it would be unlikely for the team to keep three quarterbacks -- especially since Griffin is still practice squad-eligible -- but preseason action could potentially change that outlook.

Buccaneers' Ryan Griffin: Inks RFA deal with Bucs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin signed Monday with the Buccaneers to the one-year, $1.8 million restricted free agent contract he was tendered, Adam Caplan of ESPN reports.

Griffin has never seen the field in his four seasons as a backup quarterback, but the Buccaneers appear comfortable with him as their replacement option for Jameis Winston following Mike Glennon's departure for Chicago in the offseason. Barring an injury to Winston, Griffin will likely be held off the field for the majority of 2017 as well.
