NFL draft prospect Jameis Winston will be throwing at the Combine despite his reported shoulder issue…
Quarterback Jameis Winston, who led Florida State to a national championship while winning the Heisman Trophy in 2013, is reportedly suffering an injury ahead of the NFL Scouting Combine.

Winston is having issues with his throwing shoulder, which presents an obstacle for a quarterback who is widely expected to be selected first overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
This will give Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota a leg up on Winston in the Combine. Winston still plans to throw at the Combine however, and is looking to battle through the pain.
CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora confirmed this on Twitter.
