Winters says 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.
Winters originally suffered the abdominal injury in November before being placed on injured reserve in late December. It isn't clear when exactly he went under the knife, so it's difficult to gauge if he could be ready in time for Organized Team Activities this spring.
Winters suffered an undisclosed abdomen injury in Week 2 and played through the pain all season before missing last Sunday's game against the Chargers. The Jets signed defensive lineman Deon Simon to fill his place on the roster.
Winters (abdomen) is out for Sunday's game against the Chargers.
Winters was able to play in Week 15 despite this injury, so he may have endured a setback in practice week afterwards.
Winters (abdomen, ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Saints.
Winters was listed as questionable after finish the week as a limited practice participant, and will once again play through the injuries against the Saints.
