The New Orleans Saints are in the midst of a Week 8 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and they might have to continue this one without their quarterback, as Jameis Winston exited the game after getting brought down awkwardly by Devin White.

As Jeff Nowak notes in the tweet below, Winston “hobbled and eventually goes down”. He then was helped off the field and eventually a cart was brought out for him.

With Winston out of the lineup, Trevor Siemian steps in as the backup. Remember — Taysom Hill is still out with a concussion and Ian Book is inactive and has been throughout the season.

Jameis Winston left the Saints/Bucs game with an injury

This was Winston’s first game against the team that spent a No. 1 pick on him six years ago. It was a revenge game for the former Buc and hopefully, he’s okay and can return at some point.

Siemian is the only active quarterback on the roster at the moment with Hill out and Book inactive. If Winston is out for next week, perhaps we see Ian Book under center against the Falcons.

As of now, all we know is that Winston was carted off and some teammates went to check on him. We’ll continue to update this post as we get more information on the injury. Here’s to hoping that Jameis Winston is okay and able to return at some point this season.
