The New York Jets have a surprising 3-2 record, and with injured tight end Kellen Winslow being set to return so, there was hope that the offense could continue to improve under rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

Well, they won’t have Winslow for at least the next four games:


Winslow, who leads the Jets with 17 catches and is tied for the team lead with two touchdown grabs, did not participate in practice because of his surgically repaired right knee, which requires constant pain management due in part to the horrific motorcycle crash Winslow had while with the Cleveland Browns as a rookie.

“He seemed to make it through the game OK,” Jets coach Rex Ryan said. “We’ve been putting him on a pitch count (by limiting his practice action). I thought today he would do a little practice. He did not practice.”

Perhaps the suspension can be a blessing in disguise for Winslow and his ailing knee in hopes he can’t get fully-healed for the second-half of the season.
