Rumors have been swirling in regards to what exactly has sidelined Browns tight end Kellen Winslow. His name was even brought up in trade rumors before the deadline.
Sunday night, Winslow explained that he had been in the hospital because of a staph infection. He told Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer that he feels like he's been treated like a "piece of meat" and was not happy that Browns GM Phil Savage didn't call while he was being treated at the Cleveland Clinic.
"Sometimes I don't even feel a part of this team," Winslow said.
The Browns, meanwhile, said today they'll decide whether or not to fine or punish Winslow for his comments.
Terry Pluto of The Plain Dealer says Winslow's complaints have more to do with money than anything else. He's wanted a new contract since the spring.
