Just going off Sean Payton’s comments, it appears that Jameis Winston won’t be playing in any more games during the 2021 season.
The New Orleans Saints starting quarterback was knocked out of his team’s huge win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday with a knee injury which head coach Sean Payton briefly addressed after the game.
“I think it’s significant,” Payton said at his postgame press conference.
The injury occured when Winston scrambled to the left 3 yards. Bucs linebacker Devin White tackled Winston with a horse-collar. He would be helped to the sidelines and eventually carted-off the sidelines into the Saints’ locker room.
He also mentioned Jameis felt something “pop” during the injury. Payton also stated that he cried when Winston came to the locker room.
Hopefully the initial diagnosis turns out to be not as severe as feared, but fans should prepare for the worst while hoping for the best.
