Saints coach Dennis Allen said earlier in the day that Jameis Winston was limited in Wednesday’s practice. Winston injured his back in the season opener.

But the practice report revealed Winston also has an ankle injury.

Winston downplayed his injuries after practice, saying “a lot of guys are playing with something.”

Winston has four fractures in his back, and whether he’s really “feeling good” as he insists or not, the quarterback is making no excuses.

“I’m feeling. . . . My main goal is to find a way to get better every day, whatever it is with my body, whether it’s conceptionally, as a leader,” Winston said, via video from the team. “Like I’m trying to find a way to get better every single day. That doesn’t stop no matter the circumstances.”

Cornerback Paulson Adebo (ankle), running back Alvin Kamara (rib), right tackle Ryan Ramczyk (elbow), receiver Tre'Quan Smith (shoulder), tight end Taysom Hill (rib), safety Marcus Maye (rib), fullback Adam Prentice (shoulder) and receiver Deonte Harty (foot) also were limited.

  1. Panthers just need to stop the run game against the Saints.
    Bake, don’t screw this one up, on Offense.

  2. Was great seeing the return of Jameis on Sunday. Saints fans are surely going to enjoy the roller coaster ups and downs you get with him when you ask him to be more than a game manager. Sean Payton knew what he had in Jameis.

  3. Since Winston came into the league in 2014, after every game that he plays sub par he says he is trying to get bette, that he needs to get better yada yada yada. But he never gets better. There is no question he wants to do well. But he is not a starting caliber quarterback. At best he will win half of your games for you.

  4. Playing a QB so banged up tells me Someone KNOWS if Dalton (more accurate) gets a chance, Winston will never start again…

    Payton looking SMART!

  5. Panther’s lose 10 in a row this week. It does not matter who is QB for the Saints, they have an all around better team.
