Jameis Winston Injured, X-Ray “Negative”

September 13th, 2019

Late in the nail-biting win against the Panthers last night, Jameis Winston was seen limping on television.

America’s Quarterback shook it off, but that doesn’t mean whatever happened was insignificant.

Jameis was taken after the game by golf cart with what looked like a member of the Bucs medical staff to inside the Panthers’ stadium. Jameis emerged about five minutes later.

Joe later learned Jameis was injured and had an X-ray that was read as “negative,” as in good news. Joe’s source would not reveal the injury. The only thing Joe was able to learn was that the leg issue was not an ankle injury.

Great news (for now) for Bucs fans. And the extra three days rest the Bucs now have after playing on short rest certainly can only help Jameis.

    @Joe – Where is the Jameis hate you’ve been pumping? Give the warrior his due praise! FAMOUS JAMEIS

  2. Rod Munch Says:

    Yes, great news he’s OK. Now let’s get Evans back to 100%, and replace Perriman with Bobo who can at least catch the ball.

    Serious question…

    Did anyone see the footage of Winston on the sidelines where he turns his head to look at something and SQUINTS to see it? Almost like his vision is bad and he needs distance contacts?

    Not making a joke or anything, I’m being serious. Go to Twitter and to (at) beyoncesknee username. That person posted video of Jameis looking and squinting to be able to see something.

    This is concerning. If the guy is near-sighted and the Bucs don’t have him wearing corrective vision, that’s ridiculous and would truly be making things harder for him.

    Great win
    We need this Jameis
    Defense I think is top 10

    ButtBandit – To answer without insults – yeah I saw it too, but I don’t think it’s a big deal. You can have a slight issue and still squint at times. I always had great vision, never wore glasses, always test 20/20 on the eye charts but will still squint, in particular at night time as I’d get that bloom effect and it would make it hard to read stuff at a distance. But it’s really lighted text that would give me mildly difficult time, I could still read it, but would just have to squint a bit. Assuming it’s a similar issue it wouldn’t affect anything on the field unless he’s trying to read the eyes of a safety that is 30 yards down the field, which isn’t what a QB does. Anywho I’m guessing a lot of people saw that and will have him doing an eye test to be safe.

    BucsBandit ,

    He’s been doing that since he was a freshman in college. He used to wear glasses off the field. I’ve always said he should get LASIK done.

  8. Bird Says:


    Contacts for 25 years. They work too

  9. LoveBucs Says:

    @Rod Munch – Agree about Bobo — he CATCHES the ball and is slippery. Bobo had so-so night as returner…. He will break one or more returns this year for key field position or TD. Jameis trusts Bobo, too. Perriman has to CATCH the dang ball…..hoping Perriman delivers big next week.

  10. DCBucsfan Says:

    @ROD you got a point as far as involving Bobo in the mix.. they have too mix it up!

    Negative X-Ray doesnt mean anything, because essentially it only shows bones(Also known as hard tissue). You need an MRI to show ligament, cartilage or tendon issues, which is the usual culprit of sports injures. A negative X-ray isnt a vote of reinsurance

  12. adam from ny Says:

    jameis has been squinting for years now…he is at his best when excited, super animated, and his eyes bulge out of the sockets…that’s when he is on and loving football


  13. adam from ny Says:


    it seems we have a defense !

  14. Bird Says:

    We are good

    Joe just did an X-ray on Jameis balls
    “They are plump “

  15. DCBucsfan Says:

    you guys are terrible.. lol
    can you just embrace the win? Now I did see a rare site winner post game Winston with the broadcasters and his “eyes” seemed fine..

  16. Adrnagy Says:

    Suddenly everyone is ok with the Bucs and Jameis …. don’t be taking Winston’s jerseys out of the trash. You fools. Football is a team sport.

  17. Clean House Says:

    Jameis has been squinting like that since Tallahassee

  18. Sport Says:

    An Identify is brewing and I like it! Lets hope JW sees it too!

    Go Bucs!

    In BA I Trust!in

  19. FireJasonLicht Says:

    Bobo Is BooBoo. He needs to be cut would much rather see Watson out there.

  20. Stanglassman Says:

    SM Bunting got X-rays too. Glad to hear his x/rays were negative too. Guess they thought that guy hanging in him running down the field on the kickoff broke his leg.

    Bucball- They know what they’re looking for and what medical gadget to use.

    I would feel left out if I didn’t add Jameis has been squinting a long time. LASIK Lol. Use to wear glasses. You guys are funny.

    Well better keep them far away from Tom Brady.
    Brady likes his balls deflated

  22. BucsBandit Says:

    Thanks for the respectful reply, Rod.

    If he’s squinting for any vision purpose it sure seems like he might be helped with contacts or a prescription clear helmet shield (no idea if they even make those). Sure would be crazy if one of the reasons he holds the ball too long is because it takes him a bit to fully focus; doubt that’s the issue but would be amazing if it were and it could be improved with clearer vision.

  23. Rashad Says:

    Jaboo was throwing darts. My only complaint was 3rd and three throw to mike Evans. Give him a ball to catch and the game was over. But other than that Jameis was humming.

  24. Pok Says:

    With a dude who leads the league in interceptions since being drafted, the armchair doctors dismissing his vision issues as “old news” sound pretty silly. But again, JBF comment section so there is that. Remind me to pay good money for your medical advice. Dude needs a vision exam, because this is a game of inches. If you can’t tell if it’s a pair of shoes or a couple of pigeons at 20 yards you will end up leading the nfl in interceptions.

  25. Old School Athlete Says:

    I saw the squint too, but overall, I got the idea that Jameis was seeing the field much better last night. I didn’t see the panicking and mindless heaving of the ball. Maybe improved protection had something to do with it.
    Overall, a big improvement over week one! I thought it was a great win and I will admit I didn’t expect it. Now another winnable game coming up!

    Earth to BBonzai: whew are you?? Our Bucs won. Fair and square.

  27. 813bucboi Says:

    We have competent coaches, a run game and defense…Winston just has to manage the game….


  28. Jason S. Mclaurin Says:

    Jameis has always been squinting it was one of his nicknames when he played at FSU. I believe his ankle is hurt again. Winston hurt his ankle his final season at FSU and it has lead to his bad play on the field for 5 years now. I thought when he was suspended last season he would’ve got it scoped but instead he bought into the pressure to return and stunk again so bad he was benched. He’s good as a game manager these days and I think he will improve within this offense. Leftwich doing a great job with him and really keeping a good handle on Winston on the field

  29. July Joe Says:

    TEAM wins mean NOTHING in evaluating QBs. Jameis has been ELITE in various metrics for the past 2 years … but there was no run game and no defense.
    Last night he was a “game manager” but the run game was “decent” and the defense was magnificent … and the TEAM won.

    This isn’t rocket science.

    As for JW himself … he played better last night than Mr. $134million JARED GOFF played against the Panthers in Week 1 … and Goff got MORE HELP from his run game … way more help!

    Most “fans” are dumb … that’s just a fact.

  30. #1 BUCFAN Says:

    I hope the Bucs org. reads this stuff and will get his vision tested. He squinted in collage to see the play being called.

    I think they as required starting to get the BA offense and defence figured out.
