Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that, two weeks ago, the publicist for Kellen Winslow was poised to annouce that Winslow got his staph infection from a car door.
We assume this means that Winslow cut himself on a car door, and that the cut developed a staph infection.
(Hey, at least he didn’t get it from a tractor.)
Mort also reports that owner Randy Lerner made the call on rescinding the suspension after the text messages instructing Winslow not to talk about his staph infection came to light.
Meanwhile, a league source has opined to us that the manner in which the Browns handled the situation paints them as “inept.”
We agree.  And if coach Romeo Crennel is on the hot seat as his team’s high expectations have melted into a 2-4 reality, G.M. Phil Savage should be right there next to him.

    Ya think?
    It’s pretty tough to make K2 a sympathetic character but somehow Cleveland’s front office managed it.

    As a microbiologist, I guarantee that Winslow did not get staph from his car door. Rather, Winslow himself is probably a raging carrier of the bacteria and when he cut himself on his car door, gave the staph an easy opportunity to take hold. The point is if you meet Mr. Winslow and shake his hand, a healthy dose of Purell should be your next move.

    Staphylococcus aureus can live up to 3 weeks on a dry surface and may cause skin and surgical infections, food poisoning and pneumonia, according to the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).

    Is this the same “car door” that all those other members of the Browns got theirs from too?
