Jets | Kellen Winslow was unhappy with PT

New York Jets TE Kellen Winslow believes he was "weeded out" of the game plan in Week 5 as the team prepared for his four-game suspension. "Stuff goes on behind the scenes that ... look, they knew I was going to get suspended," Winslow said. "Sometimes you just kind of get weeded out or whatever. I knew I wasn't going to take the appeal if I got suspended. My knee was hurting, I'm weeded out of the game plan ... it was just a frustrating time." TE Jeff Cumberland was given a bigger role as a result, and Winslow played in only 19 snaps.
Expect the Jets to start getting Winslow involved again, but it may come gradually with Cumberland still in the mix. Consider Winslow a backup option for now, but he may have low-end TE1 appeal based on matchups.
