Original Text

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston will not get to see the field Saturday against Clemson as a result of a continued investigation into an off-field incident from earlier this week.

Winston had initially been suspended by the school for the first half of Saturday's clash against No. 22 Clemson, but Sports Illustrated's Andy Staples provides a memo from the university that the suspension has been extended:

FSU release: Jameis Winston now suspended for the entire Clemson game. http://t.co/TF1Eenukff

Turner Sports' Rachel Nichols provides details on the reasoning behind FSU's choice to make it a full-game suspension:

Rachel Nichols @Rachel__Nichols

Am being told increased penalty for FSU's Jameis Winston came after school discovered he'd not been entirely truthful with them.

Rachel Nichols @Rachel__Nichols

Source tells me Jameis Winston originally downplayed his public use of a vulgar phrase to FSU officials, denying he jumped on a table.

Source tells me Winston admitted full story after school came back w/witness accounts. Athletic Director made call on increasing suspension.

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports has more on the decision:

Bruce Feldman @BruceFeldmanCFB

SOURCE:Winston's suspension due to FSU administration finding discrepency w/ his account of where he was standing when saying theobscenities

The initial half-game punishment was the result of an obscene phrase he yelled in public on campus, as noted by The Big Lead's Jason McIntyre (language NSFW).  

Winston later held a press conference to apologize for his actions:

Why the suspension was extended isn't known, although Yahoo! Sports' Dan Wetzel muses that the timing of the announcement is intriguing:

Dan Wetzel @DanWetzel

Jameis Winston full game suspension comes via late night release signed by interim president Garnett Stokes and AD Stan Wilcox. Telling

On the field and without last year's Heisman winner, the No. 1 Seminoles will turn to sophomore quarterback Sean Maguire, who has attempted just 26 career passes.

The Clemson Tigers are a fierce rival, but the Seminoles have come out on top in 10 of the last 11 as hosts.
