Dennis Allen: Jameis Winston left practice early after he “tweaked his foot a little bit”

USA TODAY Sports

There may be an injury concern developing in New Orleans.

Quarterback Jameis Winston left practice early on Monday with a foot injury.

“Jameis went in today, he kind of tweaked his foot a little bit. He went in for some evaluation,” Allen said in his press conference. “I don’t have any update on that. But it was kind of [when he was] rolling out, I think it was in the 7-on-7 period, he kind of felt it tweak a little bit. So we wanted to go in and get him evaluated.”

There was some question as to whether it was a foot injury or ankle injury, but, via Luke Johnson of the New Orleans Advocate, the Saints clarified that it was indeed a foot injury.

Winston is already returning from tearing his ACL midway through the 2021 season. By most accounts, Winston has had a strong camp, avoiding costly turnovers. Last season, Winston completed 59 percent of his passes for 1,170 yards with 14 touchdowns and three interceptions. The Saints were 5-2 in games Winston started.

New Orleans also has Andy Dalton and Ian Book at quarterback on its roster. But if Winston’s foot injury keeps him out for a while, the Saints could perhaps become a potential landing spot for San Francisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo.

  1. Give Andy Dalton a small chance and the Saints may just be a team worth watching and a greater chance of winning!

  2. When this guy isn’t throwing interceptions he is in the tub…story of his career so far.

  3. Meanwhile, Jimmy Garroppolo has his bags packed and waiting by the front door.
    He just doesn’t know where to confirm his flight destination.

    ———————————-
    Have you watched him play the last 4-5 years? He’s not great.

  5. Winston has a cannon for an arm. He’s been a turnover machine his whole career. I’m not really sure what to make of the saints this year. Garroppolo would be an upgrade if healthy, but he’s kind of in qb purgatory, where he’s pretty good, but unreliable and as a gm you’ll have to replace him sooner rather than later
