CLEVELAND (AP) -Browns tight end Kellen Winslow says he thought he was doing the right thing when he spoke publicly about his staph infection and said the team has a problem with the infections.
The Pro Bowl player, who was suspended this week after he made critical comments about the Browns' handling of his hospitalization, now says the infection was serious but had nothing to do with football.
In a statement released Saturday night, he said he didn't mean to disrupt the Browns, but to highlight the medical issues on the team.
``This past week has been trying for all parties involved,'' Winslow said in the statement. ``As you know, I contracted staph for the second time in my career and was hospitalized for four days. I spoke out on this because I felt it was the right thing to do. This had nothing to do with football. This was and remains a serious health concern.''
Cleveland rescinded Winslow's one-game suspension on Saturday, but he will still miss Cleveland's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. The team said he will return on Monday.
or the Browns organization, my teammates and the city of Cleveland,'' Winslow said. ``I look forward to getting back to playing football and being a productive member of this team. It's now time to focus on winning.''
