CLEVELAND (AP) -- Tight end Kellen Winslow has been suspended for
one game without pay by the Cleveland Browns for critical comments he made following Sunday's loss at Washington.
Winslow, who spent three days at the Cleveland Clinic earlier this month with an undisclosed illness, revealed he had a staph infection. He complained that the team, which has had at least six known cases of staph in the past three years, asked him to hide his illness.
Winslow will miss Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tuesday's action by the team will cost him $235,294 -- his one-game paycheck. Winslow will not be allowed to practice or attend meetings at the team's facility this week and cannot return until Monday.
