Bills' Brian Winters: Gearing up Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (knee) is active for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.

With Quinton Spain (foot) sitting out, Winters could start Tuesday's game at left guard in Spain's place. Otherwise, he'll simply serve as depth on the offensive line.

Bills' Brian Winters: Questionable for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (knee) is considered questionable for Tuesday's game versus the Titans.

Winters logged a limited practice Saturday, so he's on the right track for Week 5 if he can avoid a setback.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters was forced out of Sunday's game versus the Raiders with a knee injury.

Winters suffered this injury in the first half and is considered questionable to return.

Bills' Brian Winters: Left off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters missed a couple of practices but the veteran guard appears to be back at full health. Cody Ford is expected to start at right guard while Winters stays in a reserve role.

Bills' Brian Winters: Misses Thursday's session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters sat out Thursday's practice due to a leg contusion, Maddy Glab of the Bills' official site reports.

Winters is competing for the starting right guard spot to begin the season with normal starter Jon Feliciano out following chest surgery. Winters is no sure thing to start, though, and he could go anywhere from being a key fill-in starter on the line all the way to being a preseason cut.

Bills' Brian Winters: Headed to Buffalo
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters has signed with the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It didn't take long for Winters to catch on with another team after being sent packing by the Jets on Sunday. The 29-year-old gives the Bills some added offensive line depth following Jon Feliciano's injury and could compete for the team's starting right guard slot.

Brian Winters: Cut by Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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. The move clears roughly $7.2 million in cap space for the team, per Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York.

Jets' Brian Winters: Could be moved to depth role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Jets' Brian Winters: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Jets placed Winters (shoulder) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ethan Greenberg of the team's official site reports.

Winters apparently dealt with a shoulder issue all season, and he redislocated it during Sunday's win over the Giants. The 28-year-old lineman could require surgery to ensure he's ready for the 2020 campaign. Tom Compton is in line to start at right guard in Winters' place.

Jets' Brian Winters: Could require surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters dislocated his shoulder during Sunday's 34-27 win over the Giants and is likely to miss the rest of the season, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.

Winters appears to have re-dislocated his shoulder, according to Eric Allen of the Jets' official site, after initially having injured it during the preseason. Expect Tom Compton to take over as the Jets' starting right guard in the event that Winters indeed misses the rest of the year.

Jets' Brian Winters: Departs Sunday's game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (shoulder) left Sunday's game against the Giants and never returned. He's set for an MRI on Monday, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

It's unclear how Winters picked up the injury, but the fact an MRI is scheduled is cause for some serious concern. Expect more specifics on the injury to come to light following the MRI, and if Winters can't go in Week 11, Tom Compton would be in line to get the start at right guard.

Jets' Brian Winters: Ready to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (shoulder) is active for Monday's game against the Browns, Randy Lange of the Jets' official site reports.

Winters was initially listed as questionable for Week 2, but he appears a full go for Monday's tilt. He'll start at right guard versus the Browns.

Jets' Brian Winters: Listed as questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (shoulder) is questionable to play in Monday's game versus the Browns.

If Winters is unable to play, the team's offensive front could be in tough shape since Kelvin Beachum (ankle) is also questionable.

Jets' Brian Winters: Practices in full Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (shoulder) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.

Winters sat out most of the preseason due to a shoulder injury suffered during an exhibition match with the Giants. He appears to have returned to full health and is on track to suit up at right guard Sunday versus the Bills.

August 11, 2019 03:24 PM
Jets' Brian Winters: Likely to miss rest of preseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters is week-to-week with a shoulder injury and is unlikely to play in the rest of the preseason, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Winters sustained the injury in Thursday's preseason game against the Giants. While he's sidelined, Tom Compton will likely take over at right guard.

August 9, 2019 10:48 PM
Jets' Brian Winters: Leaves preseason game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters won't return to Thursday's preseason game against the Giants due to a shoulder injury.

It's unclear how Winters picked up the injury, but it will hold him out of the rest of Thursday's contest. The severity of the injury is also unclear. Expect the team to comment on Winters' status after the game, but for now, Tom Compton will handle right guard duties.

Jets' Brian Winters: Full speed ahead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (abdomen) was a full participant in Monday's practice, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.

Winters worked in team drills, but it'll be more telling if he plays Friday's preseason game against the Giants. The 27-year-old is slated to be the Jets' starting right guard in Week 1.

August 18, 2018 03:12 PM
Jets' Brian Winters: Limited during practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters (abdomen) made an appearance at practice Saturday, though he was withheld from team drills, Ralph Vacchiano of SNY reports.

Winters has been working his way back from an abdominal injury and took a significant step Saturday by participating in portions of practice. Assuming he's healthy by the time the regular season rolls around, the 27-year-old is expected to slot in as the team's starting right guard.

Jets' Brian Winters: Still dealing with abdominal pain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters is still recovering from an abdominal injury and is not expected to play in Thursday's preseason game against the Redskins, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

A few weeks ago, reports surfaced that Winters had put his abdominal issue in the rearview mirror, but it seems like this was a bit premature. Winters, 27, is still reportedly recovering from the injury, and the Jets have taken a cautious route to ensure his availability for Week 1. What does this mean in the short term? For starters, it's unlikely Winters will play in the remaining three preseason contests. Additionally, New York will have to find a way to keep Winters in shape without having him on the practice field. The Jets will probably clear things up regarding his status as the regular season gets closer, but for now it's mostly a wait-and-see approach with Winters.

Jets' Brian Winters: Back to 100 percent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Winters said Monday that he has fully healed from the abdominal injury that derailed his 2017 season, Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News reports.

Winters' months of "horrendous" pain appear to be in the rearview mirror following his return to team activities. The veteran guard is expected to be an anchor on New York's offensive line moving forward.
