I'm still a Winslow fan so this is a potential blow for Sunday. Harrison is more worrying, anyone hear how bad his knock is?

Browns' Winslow to have MRI on shoulder

Associated Press



BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow will have an MRI on his right shoulder after injuring it in the closing minutes of Monday night's win over the Buffalo Bills.

Winslow was hurt when he was tackled in front of Buffalo's bench while making a 16-yard reception that set up Cleveland's game-winning field goal. The five-year veteran, who has had numerous injuries during his career, was driven to the ground by Bills linebacker Paul Posluszny and came up wincing in pain.


Winslow briefly left the field but returned and was the intended receiver on an incompletion by quarterback Brady Quinn before Phil Dawson kicked a 56-yard field goal in Cleveland's 29-27 win. Winslow finished with three catches for 40 yards.


"We'll check him out and see if he'll be able to do much this week," Browns coach Romeo Crennel said.


Crennel said defensive tackle Shaun Smith will also have an MRI on a calf injury. In addition, the Browns had several other players banged up. Running back Jerome Harrison, who had a 72-yard touchdown run, injured his hamstring. Safety Sean Jones (ankle), nose tackle Shaun Rogers (shoulder) and running back Jason Wright (neck) were also hurt.

I think most here know this, but just in case:

Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow sustained a sprained right shoulder in Monday night's win over the Buffalo Bills, an injury unlikely to keep him out for an extended period.

Winslow, who played through a painful injury to his left shoulder last season, got hurt while catching a 16-yard pass that set up kicker Phil Dawson's 56-yard field goal in a 29-27 win. After making the reception, Winslow was wrapped up by Bills linebacker Paul Posluszny near the sideline and fell hard on his shoulder.



An MRI taken Tuesday revealed no structural damage in Winslow's shoulder. Coach Romeo Crennel said Winslow would not practice Wednesday and that the five-year veteran's status for the game against the Texans would depend on getting strength and range of motion in his shoulder.


Winslow declined comment when he came into Cleveland's locker room.


A Pro Bowler last season after making 82 catches for 1,106 yards, Winslow has 39 catches for 402 yards and three TDs this season. He missed Cleveland's Oct. 13 game against the Giants after being hospitalized with a staph infection, and he sat out an Oct. 26 game at Jacksonville after the Browns suspended him for detrimental conduct. The team later rescinded the one-game suspension.


Winslow isn't the only Browns player hurting. Running back Jerome Harrison (hamstring), safety Sean Jones (ankle), nose tackle Shaun Rogers (shoulder, neck), defensive tackle Shaun Smith (calf), fullback Lawrence Vickers (ankle), defensive tackle Corey Williams (shoulder) and running back Jason Wright (neck) all missed practice on Wednesday.
