Jameis Winston had meniscus trimmed this offseason

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians talks about the inconsistencies of Jameis Winston, Shaq Barrett's free agency and how the defense could reach new levels in 2020.

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.
