The Buccaneers are reportedly switching quarterbacks again, giving Jameis Winston the nod against the 49ers this week.
The Buccaneers have confirmed that Jameis Winston will return to the starting lineup in Week 12. HC Dirk Koetter declined to reveal that earlier at his press conference because he hadn't yet spoken with Winston and Ryan Fitzpatrick.

At a press conference Monday afternoon Coach Dirk Koetter said he knew who he was going to go with, but would not publicly announce it until he had talked to both quarterbacks.
Winston last started on October 28 when he threw four interceptions against the Cincinnati Bengals.
In Sunday's game against the New York Giants, Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions. He also did not have a touchdown pass for the second consecutive week.
Winston replaced Fitz in the Giants game and brought the team back to make it close, throwing for 199 yards and two touchdowns.
When asked whether he would consider activating the third-string QB Ryan Griffin for any games this year, Koetter said he would consider it, but did not go into details.
The Bucs take on the San Francisco 49ers at Raymond James Stadium Sunday at 1:00.
