TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Suspended Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston came out in full pads and participated in warm-ups Saturday night for before going back to the locker room and changing into street clothes.

The Heisman winner was suspended for the game against No. 22 Clemson after making "offensive and vulgar" comments about female anatomy earlier this week. The initial punishment was Winston to sit out the first half, but interim university president Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced the new suspension late Saturday night.

Winston came out of the tunnel with the other quarterbacks and took snaps under center like normal. Shortly after he spoke with Jimbo Fisher and went back into the locker room. Winston later reappeared wearing his jersey without pads, a ball cap and pants.

The suspension came after several students tweeted Winston stood on campus and shouted an obscene phrase that may have derived from an internet meme.

Sean Maguire was slated to start for Florida State.
