Winslow attendsbrother's funeral
CLEVELAND -- Cleveland Browns tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. attended a funeral on Tuesday for his younger brother, Justin K.B. Winslow, who died suddenly last week in Kansas City, Mo. He was 23.
The son of Hall of Fame tight end Kellen Winslow Sr. was found unconscious on Oct. 12 by his mother, Dawnn Wimes O'Bannon. According to a statement released by the family, he was unresponsive with a weak pulse.
Justin Winslow was taken by ambulance to a hospital but couldn't be revived and died at 8:30 a.m.
A family spokeswoman said the cause of death would not be known until toxicology tests are completed.
"We are deeply saddened by the untimely and sudden death of our beloved son and brother, Justin K.B. Winslow," the family's statement said. "Justin will continue to inspire his family and friends that were touched by his life. His vivacious personality and magnetic spirit will be deeply missed."
Kellen Winslow Jr., who suffered serious injuries in a motorcycle accident last year, joined his family for his brother's funeral at Watkins Brothers Memorial Chapel in Kansas City. Winslow was expected to rejoin the Browns today as the team begins preparing for Sunday's home game against the Denver Broncos.
Injured Letowski feeling better
PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh Penguins forward Colby Armstrong called Carolina forward Trevor Letowski to express his disappointment for the injuries that occurred during their collision last week.
Letowski was leveled by Armstrong's blindside hit moments after he made an up-ice pass in his own end during the Hurricanes' 5-1 victory Saturday night. Letowski sustained a concussion, a forehead cut and a stiff neck, but did not require a hospital stay.
Carolina coach Peter Laviolette said Armstrong's hit was late, but there was no penalty called. The Hurricanes also did not seem to single out Armstrong for attention the rest of the game.
Armstrong said seeing Letowski on the ice, blood pooling from the cut, gave him a "sick feeling." The play was on his mind the rest of the game, and Armstrong called Letowski on Monday to see how he was doing.
"It's an unfortunate thing that happened," Armstrong said Tuesday. "I'm just glad to have spoken to him, that's he's recovering and feeling better every day."
Armstrong, a second-year forward who looks much younger than 23, is not known for being a dirty or physically aggressive player.
MNF ratings
NEW YORK -- The Chicago Bears' big comeback against the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night had viewers glued to television sets.
ESPN's telecast of the Bears' shocking 24-23 victory was watched in 10.8 million homes, the third-highest total in cable television history. It trailed only a 1993 debate between Al Gore and Ross Perot and the return of football to New Orleans on Sept. 25 when the Saints topped Atlanta, also on "Monday Night Football."
When factoring in the Chicago and Arizona television markets, where ESPN's broadcast was shown on over-the-air channels, the game was watched in 11.98 million homes. That marked the first time an NFL game on cable drew more viewers than a telecast the same week on an over-the-air network. Denver's 13-3 victory Sunday night over Oakland on NBC was watched in 8.8 million households. The Chicago-Arizona telecast drew an 11.7 rating. A cable ratings point represents 923,000 households.
NCAA respondsto Miami-FIU brawl
INDIANAPOLIS -- In the wake of the Miami-FIU brawl, the NCAA says it would consider helping schools and conferences develop a standard policy to curb on-field violence.
Restricting post-game celebrations, such as planting school flags on an opponent's field, and how to deal with players who fight, were some of the suggestions, Ron Stratten, the NCAA's vice president of education services, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
