Buccaneers TE Kellen Winslow did not attend Tampa Bay's organized team activity Monday and is recovering from offseason knee surgery, according to

It's believed to be Winslow's fifth surgery on his right knee since 2005, although the most recent surgery was a minor arthroscopic procedure, per the report, that likely cleaned out scar tissue from previous surgeries.

"Those guys will be here," head coach Raheem Morris told reporters when asked about the absences of Winslow and RB Derrick Ward. "Obviously it is voluntary. Ward and Winslow have been around a little bit in the offseason program. We've seen them around. They are both working out through injuries — former injuries — getting healthy. I got a feeling you'll see those guys shortly."

Winslow led the Bucs in receptions (77), receiving yards (884) and touchdowns (five) last season.
