BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow didn't practice Wednesday because of a partially dislocated left shoulder, an injury sustained during the fourth quarter of last Sunday's loss in Oakland.
Browns coach Romeo Crennel referred to Winslow's injury as a ``mild subluxation,'' or separation.
Crennel was asked by a confused reporter if he meant that Winslow had separated his shoulder.
``I did not say separation - subluxation,'' Crennel said. ``I don't know what that means either, but that's what they tell me.''
What Winslow's injury could mean for the Browns (1-2) is that they may be without arguably their top offensive player for Sunday's home game against Baltimore. Winslow, who has battled injuries throughout his four seasons as a pro, had six catches for 88 yards during Sunday's 26-24 loss to the Raiders.
Winslow got hurt while hauling in a 23-yard catch over the middle in the final minute as the Browns moved into position for a potential winning field goal that was blocked with 3 seconds left.
For the second time this week, Winslow came into the locker room but declined an interview request.
As he left, Winslow was asked if he'll play.
``Of course I am,'' he said.
A few feet away, Braylon Edwards said, ``You think he'd miss a game?''
On the positive side, Browns linebacker Willie McGinest practiced for the first time since undergoing surgery for a bulging disk in his back.
The 36-year-old McGinest, who had the procedure on Aug. 9, is doubtful for Sunday's game. However, the veteran's presence on the practice field and sideline will help the Browns' struggling defense.
Also, defensive end Orpheus Roye missed practice with swelling in his knee.
