Jameis Winston had meniscus trimmed this offseason

Jameis Winston remained in the Buccaneers lineup after injuring his right thumb last season and that wasn’t the only injury he dealt with in 2019.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Winston recently had surgery on his knee to trim his meniscus. Winston tore it at some point during the season.

It’s at least the second medical procedure of the offseason for Winston. He also had LASIK surgery on his eyes since the end of the regular season.

The medical procedures add to what was already an intriguing offseason for Winston. He’s set to become a free agent next month and the Buccaneers’ plan at quarterback is one of several questions involving the position with the start of the new league year drawing closer.

  1. I hope Winston figures it out one day just to piss everyone off. For him to do that he might have to depart from this clueless franchise. Worked out for Doug Williams and Steve Young.

  2. Seems to me that after 5 or 6 years a player, in particular a QB, are what they are and more playing time rarely sees them become elite. Winston, Bortles, Mariota, Carr and others all have some success but just don’t have it.

  3. Will the self proclaimed maven of football Bruce Arains drop down the total number of interceptions on Jameis?

  4. The meniscus repair won’t help him stop throwing picks. There isn’t any surgery for that.

  5. over 5000 yards and 30 TDs on a teams with a weak running game, horrible OL and 3/4 WR out last 3 games.

    Bucs need to resign him – or Franchise him

  6. Let’s keep in mind that in addition to his 30 ints he also had an additional 12 fumbles. Yeah that worth 30 million per season.

  7. This is a guy Ill draft in fantasy football next year. A LOT of people will be sleeping on him.

  8. I can see where it’s not an easy decision for the Bucs here. Winston as is – with all the turnovers MUST go – but same person with just a reasonable improvement? Must stay. It’s gotta be tough – now, I don’t expect that he will ever become “good” in the turnover area, but I can’t blame the Bucs for hoping it could happen, cause he’d be a terrific QB if he’d just lose the idiocy plays.

  9. This guy is what Lamar Jax will turn into. Not the sharpest knives in the drawer, for sure. Smart NFL defenses figure out these type QBs sooner rather than later.

    With half of those yards and TD’s coming in garbage time….

  11. A huge part of playing in the Arians offense. Not everyone can take those licks and still perform, and you’re going to take them.
