Winston has been in the limelight this season due to several injuries, entering training camp after recovering from a ruptured ACL last year, spraining his foot during pre-season and then injuring his back in the first week. The ankle problem was featured in this week’s injury report.

“Sure, he’s a competitor, he’s a warrior, he’s tough,” Allen said. “Yeah, he’s fighting through some things. That’s part of playing football.”

Winston refused to publicly reveal his back injury, though he said it would heal and not be something he had to deal with all season.

He maintained a positive overall attitude although at one point in the game on Sunday he looked visibly upset on the sideline after looking at the tablet with quarterback coach Ronald Curry and reserve quarterback. Andy Dalton.

Winston got off the bench and started walking before another assistant called him. He got back to Curry but walked away again and was seen talking to the offensive line soon after.

“I was trying to keep my poise,” said Winston. “Maybe it was a reaction to something I saw on screens or something.” “I don’t think it escalated from there. Appearances can be very deceiving.”

Winston has completed 63.5% of his passes this season for 858 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 5 interceptions. He was fired 11 times.

“This team, this organization has been here before, so we’re going to find a way to persevere, to run,” said Winston. “Look at ourselves, evaluate ourselves, and find a way to improve.”
