Saints QB Winston likely to sit out Packers game


New Orleans Saints coach Dennis Allen said it’s unlikely starting quarterback Jameis Winston will play in Friday night’s preseason game against the Packers.

“No. I don’t think so,” Allen said when asked if there was any possibility of Winston playing.

Winston sprained his right foot during a practice session on Aug. 8 and has been considered day-to-day.

Winston traveled with the team to Green Bay, where the Saints are holding joint practices with the Packers. The veteran quarterback did some warm-up work before practice on Tuesday but did not participate. And he progressed to doing walk-through work at the start of practice Wednesday.

“Our plan was kind of go through a little bit of the same deal that we went through yesterday,” Allen said. “I haven’t gotten a full report, but it sounded like it was a little bit better today so we’ll see.”

Backup quarterback Andy Dalton has taken the first-team reps in his place and was the starter for the Saints’ preseason game against the Texans last Saturday.
