Jameis Winston Injury is on his way back from a major ACL and MCL tear. The Saints are hoping that his return will mean the beginning of a more dynamic offense. Thankfully, the injury is not considered too serious, and it doesn’t look to be a career-threatening setback. If the team is lucky, some other key players will return soon, including defensive end Marcus Davenport. The Saints open their preseason on the road against the Texans this Saturday.
Winston tore his ACL in Week 8
Saints quarterback Jameis Winston tore his ACL in Week 8 against the Buccaneers and will miss the rest of the season, league sources reported on Sunday. It was a disappointing end to Winston’s promising season. He led the Saints to a 5-2 record before the injury. The Saints finished 9-8, good for second in the NFC South. Winston completed 95 of 161 passes for 1,170 yards and one touchdown.
Winston signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Saints in the offseason. He will become a free agent at the end of the season. But he’s already missed two preseason games with a foot injury. Despite missing so much time, Winston still found a way to return to the field. Winston has said he is lucky to be in the NFL and that it’s a gift to be able to play.
Thomas tweaked his foot at practice
New Orleans Saints quarterback James Winston has tweaked his foot in practice and will likely be out for at least one game. The injury isn’t considered a major one, according to Nick Underhill, who tweeted on Monday that Winston isn’t worried. Winston will be a huge part of the Saints’ offense this season, and any reps he can get will be valuable. Last season, Winston had an impressive 59 percent completion percentage and 14 touchdowns with only three interceptions.
Winston left practice early Monday after tweaking his foot during 7-on-7 drills. While Winston may be out for one or two weeks, he has about a month to get back to practice before the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons. However, he is still expected to play in a few preseason games. Despite the injury, the Saints have made some moves to improve their passing game. The Saints also signed veteran receiver Jarvis Landry, who was a free agent after last season. Meanwhile, star wide receiver Michael Thomas has been working his way back from an ankle injury.
Winston is out for Sunday’s game against the Vikings

Winston has been dealing with back and ankle injuries since suffering an ACL tear in 2021. The quarterback has struggled in the past two starts, so the absence of Winston will certainly impact the Saints.
