WESTLAKE, Ohio (May 2, 2005) -- Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was injured in a motorcycle accident, but the team said his injuries aren't life-threatening.
Winslow was riding in a community college parking lot May 1 when he hit a curb at about 35 mph and was thrown from the motorcycle, police Lt. Ray Arcuri said.
He was taken by ambulance to Fairview Hospital and was scheduled to be transferred to the Cleveland Clinic on May 2 where the team's medical staff would treat him, Browns spokesman Bill Bonsiewicz said.
"He went over the handlebars and was real evasive about what the injuries were," Arcuri said.
Winslow was wearing a helmet, but it wasn't strapped on and flew off his head, Arcuri said. He and four other men were riding motorcycles in the parking lot, not far from Winslow's home.
The first-round draft pick missed nearly all of his rookie year after breaking his leg in the second game of the season. He has had two operations on the leg.
