GREEN BAY — He did more watching than practicing, but New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston was dressed and on the field for a limited portion of Tuesday’s joint practice with Green Bay.
The teams will have another joint practice Wednesday, and will play their second preseason games Friday night at Lambeau Field.
Winston (sprained foot) was injured a couple of day before last Saturday’s preseason opener against Houston. He left practice early Aug. 8 and had been out since.
“It’s another positive step in the right direction,” Coach Dennis Allen said. “He’s still really kind of day to day, and we’re going to be smart with that. We’re going to be cautious with that, we’re going to make sure that we give him every opportunity to get right. I don’t think that’s going to be a long period of time, but we’re not going to put him back out there until we feel certain that he’s 100 percent ready.
“We’ll evaluate him this afternoon, and even in the morning to see where he is and how he’s feeling, and then we’ll make a decision probably (Wednesday) morning.”
