The New Orleans Saints received quite a scare this week when Jameis Winston suffered an injury that will keep him out of the team’s first preseason game.

Winston is dealing with a sprained right foot.

The first question this time of year when it comes to injuries is whether or not it will affect the player when the regular season starts.

Fortunately for the Saints, it sounds like Winston should be fine by the time the season kicks off in September.

WWL-TV’s Nick Underhill appeared on Pat McAfee’s show on Wednesday and he noted that Winston’s injury is truly a “day-to-day” injury that shouldn’t be a big deal.

Underhill also noted that Winston is getting the ball out quicker and making great decisions.

“That was the big issue with him last year — kind of the quick game,” said Underhill. “It looks like he’s focused on that and it is working a little bit better.”

It sounds like the injury for Winston is just a blip during training camp. It’s obviously not ideal for the starting quarterback to miss time during training camp, but it’s something that happens quite a bit this time of year (the Cincinnati Bengals, for example, are currently without Joe Burrow as he recovers from an appendectomy).

As long as Winston doesn’t suffer any setbacks, he should be good to go when the season starts next month.
