  • Brian Winters: Released by Arizona

    The Cardinals released Winters on Saturday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official website reports. Winters was expected to compete for Arizona's starting right guard spot, but he ended up falling out of the competition after battling an undisclosed injury. The 30-year-old was active for the first two weeks of the season, but he missed Friday's practice due to a personal reason and was ruled out for Week 3. The release comes as a bit of a surprise as the Cardinals' offensive line depth is already growing thin with Kelvin Beachum (ribs) and Joshua Miles (ankle) battling injuries.

  • Cardinals' Brian Winters: Back at practice

    Winters (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. After a nearly three-week absence, Winters has finally returned to practice.

  • Cardinals' Brian Winters: Out for a couple weeks

    Coach Kliff Kingsbury said Winters (undisclosed) is out for a couple weeks with "something not too serious," Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports. It is unclear what is ailing Winters, but it is encouraging that he hasn't been placed on the preseason PUP list. A multiple-week absence would mean him missing nearly the entire training camp and the majority of the Cardinals' preseason games, which wouldn't be good for the newcomer, who is competing with Justin Murray and Josh Jones for the starting right guard spot. Winters appeared in all 16 games for the Bills last season, drawing nine starts.

  • Brian Winters: Cut by Jets

    The Jets cut Winters on Sunday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Winters served as New York's starting right guard last season and appeared set to compete for a similar role in 2020, so it's somewhat surprising to see him be cut this early into training camp.

  • Jets' Brian Winters: Could be moved to depth role

    Winters (shoulder) will face competition from Greg Van Roten for the starting right guard job in training camp, Olivia Landis of the Jets' official site reports. Winters has appeared in 89 contests (79 starts) with the Jets over the last seven seasons, so the fact that the team felt pressed to bring in a seasoned veteran such as Van Roten during the offseason could be a hint the soon-to-be 29-year-old will enter training camp as the underdog to start. However, it's worth noting that Winters was hampered by a shoulder injury in the nine games he managed to suit up for in 2019. A healthy offseason could significantly benefit Winters when in-person activities kick off.
