Draft Scout Jason Pinkston News
08/06/14 - G Jason Pinkston was waived with an injury settlement by the Browns Aug. 4.
07/28/14 - OT Jason Pinkston was not medically cleared to begin training camp with the Cleveland Browns, but at the request of the player, the team is keeping the health matter private.
07/28/14 - OL Jason Pinkston is not yet cleared to practice with the team. In a joint statement with Pinkston's representatives, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, the Browns attempted to clarify without offering specifics on the nature of the medical issue: "Cleveland Browns offensive lineman Jason Pinkston has not been medically cleared to participate in football activities. The team has been in communication with Jason and his representatives and will respect their wishes to not provide any further details at this time."
Coach Mike Pettine would only say Sunday that there is a possibility he returns "at some point," but declined to answer further questions.
Pinkston, 26, said via Twitter: "I can assure you I'm in no legal trouble & retiring hasn't come up. As far as my situation I'll leave it to them to explain."
Pettine said only that Pinkston will be unavailable. "Due to his circumstances I cannot comment on it any further. I want to give you more, but just given the circumstances, I can't," he said. "That's where we are with Jason."
Pinkston missed 10 games because of a blood clot in his lung in 2012. He played in three games in 2013 after spraining his ankle in a preseason game.
His absence leaves the Browns thin at guard because John Greco is rehabbing from an undisclosed injury. Rookie Joel Bitonio at left guard and second-year player Garrett Gilkey at right guard are playing on the first line.
