Well, apparently it was not swollen testicles after all? In a post-game interview with WKYC following yesterday’s loss to the Washington Redskins, tight end Kellen Winslow confirmed that he did in fact have another bout with staph infection.
Last week, the team (mostly Romeo Crennel) claimed that it was in fact Winslow that wanted to keep the situation under wraps when it was actually the team’s decision. In what turned out to be a pretty emotional interview, Winslow voiced his displeasure with general manager Phil Savage and his lack of contact during the recent hospitalization. Winslow then went on as much to say that he considered requesting a trade before this week’s deadline.
With the recent rumors that the Eagles were interested in his services, coupled with the emotion that he was feeling while hospitalized and then losing the way that the Browns did, it comes as no surprise that the interview was ended by a teammate that overheard what he was saying; obviously, just to play it safe as we have all seen what Kellen can do with an open microphone.
Another bout with staph for the Browns? All-Pro tight end requesting a trade? Upsetting loss? It’s bound to be a rough week in Berea, Ohio.
More on this as it comes along, I’m sure.
UPDATE: Mary Kay Cabot talked with Winslow last night, listen to the audio here.
