Bucs know QB plan for Week 4, but they're not telling

Due to Jameis Winston's three-game suspension and Ryan Fitzpatrick's record-setting start to the season, the Buccaneers are entering Week 4 with a quarterback dilemma. In Weeks 1 and 2, Fitzpatrick led the National Football League with 819 passing yards, throwing eight touchdowns and tacking on a ninth score with his legs, leading the Bucs to wins over the New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles. Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions, helping the Steelers to a 30-10 lead at halftime. Both guys know what we're going to do. I hope everyone can appreciate that it doesn't do us any good to tell our opponents what we're going to do. That will work itself out as the week goes on. He's told Winston and Fitzpatrick his plan, but he's not going to tell us.

"I know there's a lot of interest in the quarterback thing", Koetter said.

"It's possible. It's possible, " Koetter said". "I think that will be my mindset going forward". "He'll be great in our locker room and. whatever role that he ends up in, I know Jameis will embrace that role and give it everything's he got".

But he struggled against a Steelers defense that was hellbent on pressuring the 35-year-old signal caller and preventing big plays downfield. "We can't turn the ball over". "I have fun playing with these guys, and I'm here just ready to do whatever it takes to help the team win", Fitzpatrick said. He'll be joined by teammates Wednesday, which will mark the first time he's practiced with them in 28 days.

Koetter admitted Bucs players may be split over which quarterback should be starting.

The players practiced every day for 2½ hours at Plant High School, the University of South Florida and a local park. They even put on pads and had mock games on Saturdays. "He made us all better".
