Saints’ Jameis Winston (torn ACL) out for season

New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston sustained a torn ACL and is done for the season, coach Sean Payton announced Monday.

An MRI confirmed the expected worst for Winston, who also endured damage to his MCL as well.

Winston was injured on a scramble in the second quarter when he was tackled awkwardly by Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Devin White, who was penalized for a horse-collar tackle.

Winston had to be helped to the sideline after being unable to walk off by himself. He was then carted back to the locker room.

Trevor Siemian replaced Winston for the Saints (5-2), who held on for a 36-27 win over the Bucs.

Taysom Hill, New Orleans’ No. 2 quarterback, was unavailable on Sunday as he remains in concussion protocol after being injured three weeks ago.

“He’s progressing well. He’s on schedule,” Payton said of Hill.

Winston completed 6 of 10 passes for 56 yards and rushed four times for 40 yards before exiting. Siemian closed out the win by completing 16 of 29 passes for 159 yards and a touchdown.

Winston spent his first five NFL seasons with Tampa Bay. He is in his second campaign with the Saints.
