NFL News: Jason Pinkston says blood clot is “100 percent clear”

Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Jason Pinkston reports that the blood clot which prematurely ended his 2012 season has completely cleared up.

Admitted after days of discomfort in late October following the team’s early-season win over the Cincinnati Bengals, Pinkston went on to miss the remainder of the 2012 campaign.

Pinkston will reportedly meet with a specialist on April 4 and will have additional updates at this time. He had planned on returning in 2013 all along; this news merely cements the possibility that Pinkston will be available to compete for a starting spot at guard along with Shaun Lauvao, John Greco and any off-season additions.
