A week later, Winslow still in the hospital

CLEVELAND (May 9, 2005) -- Kellen Winslow Jr. remained hospitalized more than a week after sustaining internal injuries and damage to his right knee in a motorcycle accident.

"He's still in the hospital and we don't know when he will be getting out," Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel said. "We're hoping that he can recover soon."

The Browns have not provided an update on Winslow's status since releasing a statement that said they were concerned about his knee.

Winslow was injured May 1 when he went flying over the handlebars of his newly purchased motorcycle at 35 mph.

Westlake police are still determining whether to charge Winslow with reckless operation, Lt. Ray Arcuri said. Arcuri said it's unclear exactly what Winslow was doing when the accident occurred.

The 21-year-old tight end, Cleveland's top pick in the 2004 draft, bought a powerful motorcycle last month and had a learner's permit, but ignored advice from fellow riders to get lessons.
