Bucs QB Jameis Winston responds to groping allegation

21 November 2017

"The medical staff evaluated Jameis sometime earlier (Monday), and they determined that hes not ready to resume throwing yet, so Jameis will be out this week and re-evaluated next Monday", coach Dirk Koetter said.

The Bucs have said they dont want Winston to return to the lineup until he is completely healthy.

Winston, who missed the past two games, has been battling a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder since Week 6.

Fitzpatrick, who struggled in his debut as the starter two weeks ago in a 15-10 win over the New York Jets, played better against Miami Sunday.

Since the victim made the accusation, Winston's representative Russ Spielman released a statement denying all allegations: "We categorically deny this allegation".

The Uber driver told BuzzFeed News that she picked up Winston in Scottsdale, Ariz., at around 2 a.m. local time on March 13, 2016.

A letter sent by the NFL's special counsel for investigations Lisa Friel to the alleged victim read: "The League has been informed that you may have been the victim of such a violation perpetrated by Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Jameis Winston".

While waiting in line at the drive-thru of Los Betos Mexican Food, Kate said "he reached over and just grabbed my crotch".

The men placed Winston in the front passenger seat - Kate said he was the only passenger.

Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby says he witnessed the events from almost two years ago that resulted in James Winston being...

Darby said in his statement, "The accusations are just not true". At Florida State, Winston showed an uncanny ability to compartmentalize his off-field issues and focus on the game.

And to be clear, no one else was in the auto besides Mr. Winston and if anyone is "confused", it isn't the Uber driver. When asked by USA TODAY Sports, the National Football League declined comment on whether Darby would be investigated. Darby denied any kind of misconduct by anyone in the vehicle. Darby, who was Winston's teammate at Florida State, had previously witnessed that encounter.

So what would it take to have Winston and Darby placed on the commissioner's exempt list, as Greg Hardy and Josh Brown were when accused of violence against women? Winston later was cleared of violating the school's social conduct code and reached a settlement with the student in 2016.
