Jameis Winston Injury

Fox’s Jay Glazer says that Jameis Winston, quarterback for the New Orleans Saints, will start Sunday’s game despite playing with four fractures in his back. Winston is in “a lot of pain,” so Glazer says he’ll be wearing protective padding there. The veteran quarterback has been in agony “all week,” as reported by NOLA.com’s Jeff Duncan.

Winston was hit in the fourth quarter of the Saints’ Week 1 triumph over the Atlanta Falcons and was evaluated in the medical tent before returning to the Saints’ bench. He reported feeling hurt after the game. Winston said, “I don’t know where the agony is, but it’s here.” “Nothing but suffering. It hurt all over.”

The 28-year-old had been labeled as questionable for Sunday’s game due to a back issue, and he had been able to participate in limited practice all week. While “getting over some first game pain,” he told reporters on Wednesday (via Josh Alper of ProFootballTalk). Over the past two years, Winston’s career has been plagued by injury after injury.

The first overall pick in 2015 only played in seven games in 2021 before an ACL tear ended his season. His latest back condition comes on the heels of a foot injury he suffered during the 2022 preseason. Winston played well last week, completing 23 of 34 passes for 269 yards and two scores against the Falcons. Two of his carries for a total of nine yards.

Winston and the Saints will face a more formidable opponent in Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, despite New Orleans’s recent dominance over the Buccaneers, having won seven consecutive regular-season matchups. The Saints would take over exclusive possession of the first place in the NFC South if they beat the Buccaneers.

Winston was lauded by many. In addition to being dubbed “Famous Jameis,” he won the AP Player of the Year Award, the Davey O’Brien Award, the Manning Award, the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, and the ACC Offensive Player of the Year Award in 2013. Plus, he was recognized as a Consensus All-American.

McCarron, Jordan Lynch, and Johnny Manziel (the 2012 winner), and running backs Tre Mason and Andre Williams. He followed Manziel as the second first-year player to win the honor. He was also the youngest person to win the prize, at the age of 19 years and 342 days.

Winston ended his first season as a starter with an ACC record of 4,057 passing yards and a Division I Football Bowl Subdivision record of 40 passing touchdowns, all of which were rookie records.

For 13 games during his redshirt sophomore year, Winston was a starter. Due to suspension, he sat out of one game. The 2015 Rose Bowl matchup between the Seminoles (13-0) and the Oregon Ducks (12-2) was the College Football Playoff’s semi-final

Winston suffered his sole defeat as a starting quarterback for his collegiate team in this game, which Oregon won 59-20. This season, Winston threw for 3,907 yards and 25 touchdowns, both of which topped the league. In 2014, he came in at No. 6 on the Heisman Trophy ballot.

Winston elected to forego his final two years of college eligibility and enter the 2015 NFL Draft at the end of the season. When his career was over, he had a 26-1 record as a starter and had thrown for 7,964 yards, 65 touchdowns, and 28 interceptions on 562 of 851 attempts.
