NFL Report: Jason Pinkston cleared to resume workouts

Cleveland Browns guard Jason Pinkston has been out of action since mid-October when doctors discovered a blood clot in his lung. The lineman is on the Injured Reserve list for the season, but today tweeted some good news from his doctor’s visit-

“Finally cleared to lift & condition full time!! Appreciate the thoughts and prayers!!!”

John Greco has started at LG in Pinkston’s absence. The Browns have been fortunate with offensive line health overall this season. Joe Thomas, Alex Mack, Shawn Lauvao and Mitchell Schwartz have started every game.

    Glad to hear it. The O-line has been a surprising strength of the team this year. Pass protection has been outstanding. They’re still learning the get the timing right on some of the run blocking I think, but that’s an awfully young line to be as good as they are. Getting Pinkston back will only make them better next year, whether he or Greco starts.

    Fabulous for the young man and the team. Recovered quickly enough to be able to resume workouts under team supervision and hopefully he’ll be full go in training camp next year.
