The Saints (2-3) split the two games Winston has missed so far, a 28-25 loss to Minnesota in London on Oct. 2 and a 39-32 victory over Seattle in the Caesars Superdome on Sunday, with Andy Dalton as the starter. Winston missed the two games, and subsequent practices, due to back and ankle injuries. The Saints play Cincinnati on Sunday in the Superdome.
“I think this is part of the process,” Coach Dennis Allen said. “Eventually, he’s got to get out here and start practicing football. We feel like that’s appropriate, it’s part of the process of getting him well.
“This is part of the rehab process. It’s another step in the right direction.”
