Jameis Winston reportedly is moving with a “visible limp”

Chris Simms examines how Jameis Winston's game developed under Sean Payton and what he expects from the veteran quarterback under new Saints head coach Dennis Allen.

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 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.)

There’s another possible path. The Saints, who tried to trade for Deshaun Watson in March, jump into the eventual bidding for Baker Mayfield or Jimmy Garoppolo.
