Cleveland tight end Kellen Winslow was upset at Browns general manager Phil Savage for not contacting him while he was hospitalized with a staph infection. The Browns are apparently upset with Winslow for making his beef with the GM public. Coach Romeo Crennel told reporters today that Winslow could face discipline for saying “things that he didn’t need to talk about with the media.” Of course, the Browns put Winslow in a position to have rampant speculation about his condition by refusing to release any information about it. It turns out the team wanted to keep quiet that there was yet another staph infection in the Cleveland locker room. Now Winslow, who spent three days in the hospital, could be in hot water for expressing his frustration about the situation. “We’ll investigate it and determine if anything needs to be done,” Crennel said. “My policy is to keep family business in the family. So whatever I do, I do and I’m not going to broadcast it.” [Editor’s note: G.M. Phil Savage also has responded to Winslow’s contention that Savage didn’t check on Winslow while he was hospitalized. Taco Bill has the visual evidence.]
