Florida State has suspended Jameis Winston for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday, extending its initial punishment of one half after the quarterback made ''offensive and vulgar'' comments about female anatomy earlier this week. Interim President Garnett S. Stokes and athletic director Stan Wilcox announced the decision late Friday night. There had been criticism that the original punishment for Winston's latest embarrassing off-field incident was too light. The statement released by the university Friday read, ''Based upon the results of our continuing investigation of Tuesday's incident involving Jameis Winston, we have decided to not play him for the entire game against Clemson on Saturday night.'' Several students tweeted Winston stood on campus and shouted a lascivious comment that may have derived from an internet meme.

He said the NFL wants to implement new personal conduct policies by the Super Bowl.

Gordon will be eligible to play in Cleveland's final six games after the league and NFL Players Association agreed on revisions to the substance abuse program two days after announcing changes on performance enhancing drugs.
