Bills vs Saints: Jameis Winston suffers “significant” injury in Week 8

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills only play two teams with current winning records for the rest of the regular season. Those two teams faced off today in the NFC South, and a bad injury is going to impact the seasons of all three teams.

The Bills (5-2) will face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-2) on December 12. Before that, they battle the New Orleans Saints (5-2) on Thanksgiving.

It appears the Saints will be without their starting quarterback, Jameis Winston, in that contest. Winston injured his knee “significantly” during the game between the two on Sunday, and they knew it right away. Saints head coach Sean Payton shared the news with Bucs coach Bruce Arians at the final handshake and further confirmed the information during his postgame press conference.

Here is video of the play:

With Winston sidelined, the Saints could stick with Trevor Siemian, who finished the team’s win over Tom Brady’s Bucs team on Sunday. Taysom Hill remains in the concussion protocol after a hit a few weeks ago, and he could be a factor in who will play quarterback against Buffalo on November 25.
