Winslow, Faine Sidelined At Practice

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ offensive huddle at minicamp today didn’t include tight end Kellen Winslow and center Jeff Faine, according to Pewter Report. Faine is recovering from a back injury, and the reason for Winslow’s absence remains unknown. “Everything is fine,” Faine said. “I just tweaked my back a little bit last week while weightlifting. It’s nothing serious. This is just the introduction stuff, so I can pick a lot of it up in the classroom. We’ll just let it get back to normal.” As for Winslow, whom the Buccaneers acquired via an offseason trade from the Cleveland Browns, he has a significant history of injuries. It’s also a voluntary minicamp. Meanwhile, the following players were also absent for various reasons: quarterback Brian Griese, whose wife is pregnant, running back Earnest Graham because of ankle and personal reasons, running back Cadillac Williams due to a knee issue and offensive tackle Donald Penn, an unsigned restricted free agent.
