New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston’s knee injury is serious.

The Saints beat the Buccaneers during their Sunday matchup, but the Florida State Heisman winner went down with a knee injury. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

After the game, head coach Sean Payton told the media it was a “significant” injury and Ian Rapoport reported it’s “a potentially season-ending situation for the starter.”

Jane Slater further reported that it’s believed Winston suffered an ACL injury, which would almost certainly put an end to his season.

This is a really unfortunate break for Winston and the Saints. He was finally a starting QB in the league again, he was playing well and now it sounds like his season is likely done.

It’s a cruel reminder that football is a violent sport and injuries are simply part of the game.

If this is the end of the season for Winston, hopefully, he’s able to make a full recovery and return in 2022.

He worked hard to win the starting job in New Orleans after sitting behind Drew Brees last season and it’s clear he still has a lot of football left in him.

Hopefully, we see Winston back out there throwing passes sooner than later.
