Brown Humanity

Does management at the Cleveland Browns care? Oh yes, they care, but it seems they only care about themselves.

Over the weekend, Tight End Kellen Winslow of the Cleveland Browns was in a motorcycle accident.

Emergency room physicians at MetroHealth Medical Center said that the main concern for Winslow would be the internal injuries, which are potentially life-threatening.

Did you catch the part that said “potentially life-threatening”. Management didn’t. Or they choose not to.

The injuries to Winslow’s knee and shoulder have the Browns concerned about his ability to play this season, ESPN.com reported.

Don’t just take it from that report. CBS Sportsline’s account of it this morning doesn’t even mention his life-threatening injuries.

The Browns issued a statement saying his knee will continue to be re-evaluated but declined to provide any specifics. CBS SportsLine.com’s Clark Judge reported Tuesday that injuries to Winslow’s knee and shoulder might keep him out the entire season.

Now I know there’s stuff in his contract that says he shouldn’t be doing stuff like this so they’re upset. And he’s a big contributor to the team’s success(?). But come on! Management seems to be more concerned about the man’s knee because that means he may not play this year than being concerned about his life!

Am I reading this wrong? Is it overly hyped reporting? Or are the Browns just wrong?

  • I think that assuming that the Browns don’t care from sports websites is not fair to the Cleveland Browns organization. You could go to the official Cleveland Browns website to get their official opinion. You would have found this there:

    Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow remains at The Cleveland Clinic following a motorcycle accident on Sunday, May 1. A timetable for his release from The Cleveland Clinic has not been determined.

    Kellen’s internal injuries remain stable and are improving. The concern remains with his right knee, which will continue to be re-evaluated.

    Over the last several days, Kellen has been visited by team President John Collins, Senior Vice President and General Manager Phil Savage, Head Coach Romeo Crennel, some of his teammates, and other Browns personnel. Kellen is in good spirits and asks that people respect his right to privacy regarding his medical condition.

    The Browns focus and concern remain with Kellen’s health and well being and the club will not comment on any aspects of his contract.
