The Uber driver, identified as Kate, said she picked up Winston in Scottsdale, Arizona around 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 13, 2016. Shortly into the trip she said Winston “behaved poorly” by shouting homophobic slurs at pedestrians before asking to stop by a drive-thru for food.
While waiting in line, Kate said Winston, who was the lone passenger and sitting in the front seat, “reached over and he just grabbed my crotch” for three to five seconds before she removed his hand.
“I wasn’t just creeped out,” Kate said. “I was frozen.”
Jacoby Brissett was an emergency acquisition from New England a week prior to the start of the regular season after the Colts front office realized that Scott Tolzien was not the right person to start until Andrew Luck returned from his shoulder surgery. Brissett replaced Tolzien in the fourth quarter of Week 1 and has been the starter ever since, which he’ll remain for the duration of the season given Luck will not play due to a setback in his recovery from right shoulder surgery. Despite taking most of the season to learn his new team’s offense, Brissett has thrown for 2,172 yards and nine touchdowns. He’s the first Colts player to have four touchdown passes of at least 60 yards in a season since Johnny Unitas did it in 1966. — Mike Wells
