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:

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

Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports has more on the decision:

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:

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.
