Saints quarterback Jameis Winston suffered a foot injury Monday at practice.

As a result, Winston will miss a few days of practice and Saturday’s preseason game against the Houston Texans, head coach Dennis Allen confirmed Tuesday.

“He’s really day-to-day. I don’t really think it’s going to be that big of a challenge,” Allen said. “But first we’re going to make sure we get him back healthy before we get him back out there.”

Saints backup quarterback Andy Dalton took the first-team reps in Winston’s place during Tuesday’s practice.
