During Week Eight of the 2021 season, Saints quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a torn ACL. He has been cleared to participate in the team’s 2022 Organized Team Activities, and so he is.
But there’s a catch. There’s a limp. A visible one, via Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.football. Underhill noticed the limp during last week’s OTA sessions.
There’s clearly a balance to be struck between getting ready for 2022 and protecting against re-injury or further injury or a new injury as he compensates for the knee. And if Winston has a setback, the next man up is Andy Dalton and then Ian Book. (Taysom Hill has exited the quarterback room for 2022.)
