CLEVELAND (May 26, 2005) -- Browns tight end Kellen Winslow apologized to fans for his reckless use of a motorcycle and said he will miss the upcoming season because of injuries sustained in the crash.

Winslow tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and sustained unspecified internal injuries May 1, when he wrecked his high-powered motorcycle while attempting tricks in a secluded parking lot near his home.

For the first time since the crash, Winslow confirmed he will miss his second season as a pro and acknowledged that it was a mistake to take up motorcycle riding.

"To those members of the Cleveland Browns family who I have disappointed by my decision to ride a motorcycle, I humbly apologize," Winslow said in the statement. "In hindsight it was unwise to attempt to learn to ride a motorcycle without a professional instructor in a controlled environment.

"While many of you are disappointed that I will not be on the field with my teammates for this upcoming season, no one is more disappointed in this fact than me."

Winslow did not indicate if he will seek a second medical opinion on his knee. Last week, two sources within the league told The Associated Press that Winslow tore his ACL in the accident.

Winslow, who spent nine days at the Cleveland Clinic recovering from injuries in the crash, has been working out at the Browns' training facility in Berea. He has taken part in the team's 11-day passing camp, learning the new playbook and system being installed by first-year coach Romeo Crennel.

Because he broke a dangerous activities clause in his contract, the Browns might try to recoup a portion of the bonuses he has received since signing a six-year contract last season.

What a moron. Why would you jeopordize your career for screwing around recklessly on two wheels. Doesn't make sense to me.

What a loser. I heard cleveland is going to make him pay some money for it.

They should void his contract. The fact that it took him over a month to apologzie AND didn't speak publicly, just issued a statement, which probably wasn't even written by him shows his character :pisson

Did you hear his father's comments to the media? I don't have a link yet but I heard it on the local sports radio here (WEEI 850AM). Absolute idiot comes to mind. The father was completely scapegoating the media on it. Idiot.
