Winston suspended for first half vs. Clemson

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston has been suspended for the first half of the Clemson game on Saturday. 

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner, Winston was seen shouting an offensive sexual phrase on campus Tuesday. 

"As a result of his comments yesterday, which were offensive and vulgar, Jameis Winston will undergo internal discipline and will be withheld from competition for the first half of the Clemson game," Florida State's interim president, Garnett S. Stokes, and Athletic Director Stan Wilcox said in a joint statement.

Winston has had his share of off the field incidents. In November of 2013, there was an investigation into a sexual assault complaint against Winston, but no charges were filed.

Earlier this year Winston was issued an adult civil citation for shoplifting crap legs from a Tallahassee Publix store.
