Browns TE Winslow undergoes knee surgery

CLEVELAND (Jan. 30, 2007) -- Browns tight end Kellen Winslow underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove scar tissue and repair cartilage damage in his right knee.

Winslow, who injured the knee in a May 2005 motorcycle accident, was released from the Cleveland Clinic and is expected to make a full recovery. Team physician Dr. Anthony Miniaci performed the surgery.

Winslow started all 16 games for the Browns last season, often playing in pain and limited in his blocking ability because of the knee.

But he tied the team's single-season receptions record (89) in what was essentially his rookie year after missing all but two games in 2004 with a broken leg and all of 2005 with the knee injury.

Also, Cleveland hired Ted Daisher as special-teams coordinator, replacing Jerry Rosburg, who left after six seasons for the same job with Atlanta.

Daisher was Oakland's special-teams coordinator last season.
