Winston has four fractures in his back from his L1 to L4 vertebrae, Glazer reported.
“Playing in a lot of pain,” Glazer tweeted, saying that the Saints quarterback would have extra padding to protect his injured back.
The Saints (1-0) are playing host to the Bucs (1-0), whom have they beaten four consecutive times. Winston completed 23 of 34 passes for 269 yards and two touchdowns last Sunday in New Orleans’ 27-26 victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
