Jameis Winston statement on suspension - updated

Florida St. quarterback Jameis Winston, who has suspended for the first half of the top-ranked Seminoles' game against Clemson this Saturday, held a teleconference with the media this afternoon and apologized for his actions.

"First of all I want to apologize to the university, to my coaches and to my teammates," Winston said. "I'm not a 'me' person but in that situation it was a selfish act and that's not how you do things around here. I really want to apologize to my teammates, because I've done a selfish act."

Winston will be replaced by backup QB Sean Maguire in the first half, and Winston said he plans to watch extra film with Maguire to get him prepared.

Winston said Maguire would be prepared.

"Sean is a great quarterback, and that's why Coach Fisher recruited him," Winston said. "Sean is hungry. He wants his opportunity. God has blessed him."

Winston went on to say that his team will only think positive thoughts.

You've got to overcome adversity and that's one thing at Florida State we do. And when I do get my opportunity to play I'm going to do anything I can," Winston said. "That's going to eat me up. I want to be out there on the field, but I did something so I have to accept my consequences and I'm going to apologize to my team. We're not going to think about negative things, we're going to think about moving forward and winning the game.

"I messed up and I have to accept the fact I did that. It eats me alive I did something like that. I can't carry myself that way and me and Sean, we're going to watch film and I'm going to try my best to put our team in a good chance to win this game."
