Browns suspend Winslow one game without pay

NFL.com Wire Reports

Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended for one game without pay for conduct detrimental to the team, the Cleveland Browns announced Tuesday.

"Kellen has expressed his desire to be a productive member of the Cleveland Browns," Browns GM Phil Savage said in a statement. "His comments and behavior on Sunday evening, however, were unwarranted, inappropriate, and unnecessarily disparaging to our organization. His statements brought unjustified negative attention to our organization, and violated the team-first concept of our football squad."

This is dumb..... I'm pretty sure that K2 will want to get traded this offseason

Browns' Winslow disappointed by one-game suspension

Associated Press

CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow released a statement Tuesday night after being suspended for one game without pay for conduct detrimental to the club:

Cleveland Browns

2008 Statistics:

Receptions: 21

Yards: 187

Touchdowns: 1

"First I would like to say that I am disappointed that my organization felt the need to suspend me for speaking out regarding my medical situation with staph. I take responsibility for the fact that there might have been a more constructive way to release this, but when I tried to do so I was discouraged from making the issue public. Regardless of how this was released the information would still remain the same. I contracted staph, again.

"I spoke out on this because I felt it was the right thing to do and that is why I was so passionate about it. This has nothing to do with football and this has nothing to do with my current contract situation. This is a health concern.

"Please understand I care deeply for my organization, my teammates, and the Browns fans. At no time was I ever trying to cause distress for the team or be a distraction but the fact remains there is a health issue that needs to be addressed further.

"I remain loyal to the Browns organization, my teammates, the fans and the city of Cleveland. I remain a hard worker on and off the field in support of my teammates and our goal to have a winning season. I hope to be a Brown for a very long time. I know that the organization and I can move forward and focus on having a successful season, which I believe everybody agrees upon."
