WINSLOW RECOVERING FROM MICROFRACTURE SURGERY?
Patrick McManamon of the Akron Beacon Journal reports that Browns tight end Kellen Winslow was on the practice field on Saturday and, although Winslow didn't take part in any drills, he's starting to look like a guy who'll be able to play in 2007.
Winslow had microfracture surgery on his knee after the 2006 season. The procedure is aimed at using scar tissue to simulate cartilage in a knee that otherwise has none.
McManamon writes that Winslow looked as "fit as ever" on Saturday, and that "[h]e barely had a limp, wore no brace or sleeve on his knee, and when he jogged about 10 yards, he did so with no limitation."
It's hardly the same thing as getting through a practice, or a regular-season game. But it's far better than the alternative at this point.
