The New Orleans Saints are looking to take a step up in 2022 during quarterback Jameis Winston's second year leading the offense. Reports suggest the veteran signal-caller has looked improved during training camp, but a concerning foot injury caused him to leave early on Monday.

Head coach Dennis Allen kept it simple by saying Winston "tweaked" his foot when he rolled out in 7-on-7 drills. He had no further updates to provide besides that the QB was taken inside the facilities to undergo further evaluation. A diagnosis on Winston's injury should be released in the following days.

Of course, this development occurs shortly after NFL insider Ian Rapoport explained that Winston is still not 100% recovered from his torn ACL. Winston continues to sport a brace on his left leg and is making adjustments on the field. Gaining mobility and getting back to his style of play is the next step.

Winston completed 59.0% of his pass attempts for 1,170 yards and 14 touchdowns (3 interceptions) across seven games last season. He led the Saints to a 5-2 record during that span and looked every bit like a capable NFL starter. It'll be interesting to see if he can get off to another hot start in 2022.

New Orleans has odds set at +4000 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
