Browns Pro Bowl tight end Kellen Winslow is appealing his one-game suspension for conduct detrimental to the team that will force him to sit out Sunday's game at Jacksonville. Winslow's publicist, Denise White of EAG Sports Management, confirmed the appeal to the Associated Press Wednesday.
The NFL Players Association referred all calls on Winslow to Adam Kaiser, an outside counsel handling the matter. Kaiser was not immediately available for comment.To read more or comment...
- Akron Beacon Journal (Marla Ridenour): Capital punishment - Akron Beacon Journal (Marla Ridenour): Winslow's complaint 'bigger than the game' - Canton Repository (Steve Doerschuk): Defense improves each week - News-Herald (Jeff Schudel): Anderson should keep job for another week - Plain Dealer (Terry Pluto): Browns season quickly becoming pointless - Richmond Times-Dispatch (Paul Woody): Skins can succeed in survival mode - What I'm saying today: Really, who didn't expect this to happen? When someone complains to you about being a pessimistic Cleveland sports fan, point to this game. As good as their record may be, the Redskins are a beatable team for the Browns. Apparently, Derek Anderson, Braylon Edwards and the run defense couldn't figure that out.
Just forget what happened in the fourth quarter. This was embarrassing. Anderson does not look like a starting quarterback. Edwards needs a serious ego (and hand) check. The run defense is just atrocious. Perhaps Kamerion Wimbley should only be in the game during pass rush situations because he's a serious liability against the run.
More on this game to come. Maybe from me, maybe from Luke. Kudos to Leon Williams for a good game and Kellen Winslow for just getting out there.
Oh, before I forget, Romeo Crennel needs to go. It doesn't matter when, this team isn't making the playoffs.
Browns tight end Kellen Winslow, who missed Monday night's victory over the New York Giants with an undisclosed illness, was active for Sunday's game at Washington.
Winslow's condition landed him in the Cleveland Clinic for three nights; he was released last Sunday.To read more or comment...
Browns coach Romeo Crennel said strong safety Sean Jones was ''frisky'' in his first full practice Wednesday after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery Sept. 11. If he's able to start Sunday against the Washington Redskins, Mike Adams will go back to his role as the nickel back.
Adams, who had only 18 career starts in four years going into this season, is grateful for his five games in the lineup.To read more or comment...

What I'm saying today: First, thanks to everyone who stopped by for the live blog. It was a lot of fun.
The game was certainly entertaining, but the final score is deceiving. Still, Derek Anderson looked good, Braylon Edwards made a lot of big plays and Jamal Lewis was running hard. I'll have more thoughts throughout the week and Luke may as well.
Browns tight end Kellen Winslow (undisclosed illness), right tackle Kevin Shaffer (concussion) and defensive end Shaun Smith (hand surgery) were among the inactives for Monday night's game against the Giants.
They will be replaced in the lineup by Steve Heiden, Ryan Tucker and Louis Leonard, respectively.To read more or comment...
Browns tight end Kellen Winslow was released from the Cleveland Clinic Sunday after being hospitalized for three days with an undisclosed illness. But he was downgraded to doubtful for Monday night's game against the New York Giants.
Winslow was admitted to the clinic Thursday, but coach Romeo Crennel refused to give details on the four-year veteran's condition. Winslow leads the team in receiving with 19 catches for 170 yards and a TD. He will likely be replaced by 10-year veteran Steve Heiden, who has just one catch for 9 yards in 2008.To read more or comment...
