AP – Jameis Winston and Sam Darnold got hurt running the ball and kicker Chris Boswell was injured throwing it.
Winston was carted to the locker room with a “significant” left knee injury when Buccaneers linebacker Devin White pulled him down on a scramble in the second quarter of New Orleans’ 36-27 win over Tampa Bay.
Winston was taken to the medical tent before a cart took him away.
