The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are on track to begin the regular season without their starting quarterback.
The NFL is expected to suspend Jameis Winston several games for violating the league’s personal conduct policy, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday.
ESPN first reported the news.
I am supportive of the national movement to raise awareness and develop better responses to the concerns of parties who find themselves in these types of situations, but this accusation is false. While I am certain that I did not make any inappropriate contact, I don’t want to engage in a battle with the driver, and I regret if my demeanor or presence made her uncomfortable in any way.
The Buccaneers currently have four quarterbacks on the roster: Winston, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Ryan Griffin and Austin Allen.
Lindley returned to the field last year in the CFL with the Ottawa Redblacks, completing 40 of 81 passes for 391 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions. Lindley has been working with college quarterbacks in the run up to the NFL Draft over the last few years, including Carson Wentz, Jared Goff, Mitch Trubisky, C.J. Beathard and Luke Falk. Now he’ll put his coaching hat on full-time with the Aztecs.
Devin Mesoraco (R), 4 percent, New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (LHP Caleb Ferguson): Mesoraco has been scalding hot over the past week, batting.357/.471/.643. His.205 ISO is his best mark since his breakout 2014 season and ranks top-three among National League catchers (minimum 140 PAs). It’s hard to see the 30-year-old backstop being slowed down by Ferguson, who has allowed 10 runs in 10 2/3 big league innings.
Mitch Moreland (L), 46 percent, Boston Red Sox vs. Seattle Mariners (RHP Mike Leake): Moreland is flat-out mashing against right-handed pitching this season, putting up a.291/.365/.567 slash line. He’s been even more impressive at Fenway Park, where he’s batting.322/.392/.598. This is a tough draw for Leake, the owner of a 6.75 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in five career games against Boston.
