Coach Dirk Koetter announced that Jameis Winston will be under center for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers when they take on the Green Bay Packers in Week 13.

Winston last played in Week 9. Since then, he’s been sidelined with a shoulder injury. He began throwing again this week.

Tampa actually played reasonably well in Winston’s absence, going 2-1. The Bucs sit at 4-7 on the season.

Prior to his injury, Winston had completed 61.4 percent of his passes for 1,920 yards with 10 touchdowns, six interceptions, and an 87.3 passer rating.
