Florida State suspends Winston for entire game
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Florida State interim President Garnett S. Stokes and athletics director Stan Wilcox have announced that quarterback Jameis Winston will be suspended for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday.
Winston was originally suspended for just the first half after making "offensive and vulgar" comments about female anatomy on campus Tuesday. Stokes and Wilcox announced the extended punishment late Friday night.
There had been criticism that the original punishment for Winston's latest embarrassing off-field incident was too light.
The statement released by the university Friday read, "Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night."
