Jameis Winston will play in Week 16 against the Houston Texans. Winston has a hairline fracture in his throwing hand, but it hasn’t slowed him down too much. He has been limited in practices and is practicing with a tennis ball instead of a football early in the week but he followed that same pattern last week and was upgraded to a full practice on Friday before going off for 450+ yards and four touchdowns against the Lions.

Winston was upgraded to a full practice this Friday as well and looks fine to play as usual. His biggest problem will be the absence of Chris Godwin and Mike Evans but he has played well enough and found other receivers, like Breshad Perriman, to make up some of the difference.
