Since his infamous motorcycle accident in 2005, Kellen Winslow’s knee has been a constant problem. Until now.
Winslow, who’s been working out this week with his Buccaneers teammates, told the Tampa Tribune that for the first time in years, he feels no pain in his knee.
“I feel good,” Winslow said. “Last year, I was hurting for whatever reason. I know how to rehab my knee better. I feel good now. I feel as ready as I can be right now.”
We’ll never know what kind of player Winslow could have been if the motorcycle accident and a broken leg in his rookie year hadn’t forced him to miss 30 games in his first two seasons. But Winslow has been relatively healthy in his two years with the Bucs, playing in all 32 games, and he’s feeling better than he had since that fateful day when he decided to try out some motorcycle stunts.
Now, Winslow says while working out with teammates in Tampa, “I’m in the perfect place.”
