    Kellen Winslow JR injured again

    Kellen Winslow II had to have microfracture knee surgery and he could be done for next season.
    Microfracture knee surgery has a very long recovery time McCants of the Timberwolves had it done last year and it took about 14 months for him to get back on the court.

    No longer jellin' with Kellen
    March 7, 2007


    By the middle of last season, I was smitten with one Kellen Winslow II.


    The guy was on his way to 100 catches and was remarkably consistent from game to game. Meanwhile, both Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez were inconsistent and started slowly. I was so taken by Winslow's production and his role in the Browns' conservative offense that I thought there was a new No. 1 fantasy TE.

    Winslow fell off a bit in the second half, and Gonzo and Gates picked it up. But Winslow still tied a team record for receptions (89) last season after missing nearly two full seasons with injuries. I still felt good about the brash young tight end going into 2007 -- until I read this. Microfracture knee surgery on January 30. Very extensive procedure. Long recovery time expected.

    Microfracture surgery is serious business. It's a procedure that preserves a player's career -- but also could end it even faster if things don't heal correctly. Many professional athletes have been unable to return from them (although there are exceptions, such as Amare Stoudemire and DeShaun Foster).

    My new favorite tight end has now been relegated to worthless to me. In fact, I'd rather have Police Academy's Michael Winslow. Perhaps as talented as any tight end I've seen, I'm now doubting Winslow will be able to return to dominance after such an extensive surgery. And if you throw in his broken fibula operations, he has had five surgeries on his right knee/leg since September 2004. Ouch!

    Tell me I'm wrong. Tell me he'll be a weekly staple for my fantasy team again. Tell me he'll be running stadium stairs by July (as his team has led us to believe). I so want to believe it's true.

    But I must say it'd take a whole lot of persuasion to make me believe in him again.

    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Hopefully all the crap Gomer Pyle has inflicted on himself teaches him some humility.

    Dang, poor kid. If he can stay healthy long enough, he is going to be a really great help to the Browns. I hope that he gets better.
