New York Jets' Kellen Winslow to miss one practice a week

New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow is dealing with chronic pain in his surgically repaired right knee. That will have the Jets putting him on what is being called the “LaRon Landry” program. That allows Winslow to miss one practice a week and that day for Winslow is Wednesday.

Who else wishes that they could miss Wednesdays?

That could be an issue considering that Wednesday is a day where game-plans are installed. Winslow isn’t worried about that because it is devoted primarily to the “regular” personnel and he is mostly in passing personnel packages.

It is miraculous in a way that Winslow made the team at all. He sat in camp sometimes to or three days in a row and his reps were monitored, but the Jets liked what they saw.

“I’m proud and honored to make the team,” he said. “That’s a big deal, man.”

Winslow is still upset about his release from the Seahawks last season that had him sitting out the 2012 season except for a single game with the New England Patriots.

“I got a bad deal in Seattle,” Winslow said. “It was wrong, but things happen for a reason. It gave me a chance to sit down and reflect on what I’ve accomplished and, moving forward, what I still want to accomplish.”
