Report: FSU's Jameis Winston to be on sidelines against Clemson

Saturday September 20th, 2014

Suspended Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will be on the sidelines for Saturday's game against Clemson at Doak Campbell Stadium, according to a report from ESPN's Heather Cox.

Winston was suspended after several students tweeted about seeing him shouting an obscene phrase in the student union earlier this week. With Winston out, redshirt sophomore Sean Maguire is expected to start.
