Jameis Winston Played Through Multiple Injuries in 2019

Jameis Winston

Buccaneers quarterback Jameis Winston played through two significant injuries during the 2019-2020 season. He not only played with a broken thumb, but also a torn meniscus. The free agent had surgery to repair the meniscus injury.

The NFL’s Ian Rapoport reported the news via Twitter on Friday.

Winston had a very interesting season last year. He threw for 5,109 yards, which led the entire league. He also threw for 33 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. This was the first time in league history that a quarterback threw at least 30 of each. Fittingly, Winston’s last pass of the season was returned for a touchdown.

As Rapoport said in his tweet above, these injuries may add context to his up-and-down 2019 campaign. The meniscus tear especially explains why Winston only ran for one touchdown on the season. He is not the most mobile quarterback, but he did run for six in his rookie year.

The surgery repaired his meniscus, and the broken thumb will heal before the season begins. Head coach Bruce Arians has alluded to the fact that he knows what Tampa’s quarterback situation will be this year. Although, whether or not Winston is resigned will remain to be seen until free agency begins on March 18.
