Injury Notes: Winston, Rams, Cowboys, Pack

Here is the latest from the injury front at the midweek point, beginning with another NFC South quarterback encountering injury trouble.

  • Jameis Winston is now battling a foot injury. The Buccaneers quarterback, who is in a contract year, appears on the team’s first Week 3 injury report with this issue. Winston joins Drew Brees and Cam Newton as injured NFC South quarterbacks, but his malady doesn’t appear to be nearly as severe. Winston practiced fully on Wednesday and appears in line to face the Giants.
  • Austin Blythe needed a cart to leave the field Sunday at Los Angeles Coliseum, but the Rams‘ starting right guard looks to have dodged significant trouble. The fourth-year blocker said (via ESPN.com’s Lindsey Thiry, on Twitter) he suffered a low ankle sprain. Blythe is not certain how much time he will miss, but considering how he left the field, this may have been the best possible outcome. If he cannot return for Sunday’s game in Cleveland, 2018 sixth-rounder Jamil Demby would be in line to start.
  • Cowboys defensive tackle Antwaun Woods suffered an MCL sprain in Week 2, per Todd Archer of ESPN.com. Second-round pick Trysten Hill stands to be called to action if Woods is out against the Dolphins on Sunday. Hill has yet to be active this season. Woods started 15 games as Dallas’ nose tackle last season and has reprised that role this year.
  • Darnell Savage left Sunday’s Packers-Vikings game in a walking boot, but the rookie safety looks to have received good news. Savage shed the walking boot, per The Athletic’s Matt Schneiderman (on Twitter), and has been diagnosed with a shin injury. It looks like he will be good to go for Week 3’s game against the Broncos.

    Buccaneers should trade Winston and cash in on his value now so thy don’t have to pay him. Then tank this year in order to get good picks, if you get the chance to take Tua take him but otherwise wait for Lawrence. Winston is not the future

      • Begamin

        He might be a great starting QB but at least he is a starting QB. Teams like Jacksonville (and maybe Pittsburg, depending on how Rudolph plays) would probably be willing to trade something for him

        • Begamin

          he’s no longer a college athlete, let the man get paid… so make it lobster

    • Tazza

      Most starting QBs in this league have good value, take into account Winston was a former number 1 pick and is still only 25 he has decent value.
      Not to say it’ll happen but if he was to end up on the broncos he could learn and succeed Flacco and stop them from potentially having to rebuild.
      It all depends of what someone is willing to give you. But if I was the bucks I’d happily take a first round for him

    Winston is a value? They would be lucky to get a half pack of Winston cigs for him.
