Florida State has suspended starting quarterback Jameis Winston for the first half of Saturday’s game against No. 22 Clemson a day after Winston shouted a sexually explicit phrase in the middle of the student union on Tuesday.
Coach Jimbo Fisher, who was asked about the incident on the ACC teleconference, said he spoke to Winston, and was still mulling punishment.
“We’re deciding. We’re talking and things (are) going on right now,” Fisher said of Winston’s status before the punishment was announced. “It’s not something that we want or are indicative of. And it’s not a good decision. It was something that had to be addressed.”
This is the first suspension of any kind for Winston.
