Jameis Winston exits the game against Buccaneers

Winston was unable to get out on his own and had to be assisted by Saints assistants

New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston suffered an apparente leg injury from being knocked off the jersey collar by linebacker Devin White, during the second period of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ visit to the Superdome.

Winston escaped overland to his left side before being hit by White, who illegally dropped the passer from the jersey collar. Winston was lying on the pitch for a few minutes. He tried to get up to walk, but they had to enter medical assistance for him to get him off the field of play.

The quarterback spent a few minutes in the medical store being evaluated, before being taken to the locker room for further testing. Trevor Sieman took control of the offense as quarterback in Winston’s absence, with Taysom Hill idle. White was penalized 15 yards for the illegal tackle.

A former first-round recruit for Tampa bay – Global No. 1 in 2015 – Winston is in his second season with the Saints, but first as a starting quarterback. Winston won the competition for the job over Hill during the offseason, following the retirement of Drew Brees.

Winston, who was awarded the Heisman Trophy in 2013 with Florida State, was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2015, his rookie season in the NFL. For the season, he reached the match against the Buccaneers with 89 completions of 151 attempts for 1,114 yards with 13 touchdowns against three interceptions, plus 28 carries for 126 yards and a rushing touchdown. He had six completions of 10 attempts for 56 yards with a touchdown without interceptions before getting hurt. He also had 40 yards on four carries.
