Jameis Winston is done for the year.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that tests confirmed that the Saints QB does, in fact, have a torn ACL along with some MCL damage, which means he will miss the remainder of the 2021 season.
This past Sunday, Winston was tackled awkwardly before being helped off of the field and was later carted to the locker room. Saints HC Sean Payton told reporters after Sunday’s game that Winston has a “significant” knee injury and is currently on crutches. He also stated he cried when he saw him in the locker room.
Trevor Siemian replaced Winston as the Saints’ starting quarterback with Taysom Hill out for Week 8 with a concussion.
In 2021, Winston has appeared in eight games for the Saints and thrown for 1,114 yards to go with 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.
