Jason Pinkston Placed on Injured Reserve; Jarrod Shaw Signed From Practice Squad

Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE

The Cleveland Browns have placed starting left guard Jason Pinkston on injured reserve, ending his season. Pinkston was hospitalized this past Thursday with a blood clot in his lungs and remains at the Cleveland Clinic, according to reports. John Greco, who has taken Pinkston's place in the starting lineup, believes that Pinkston will try to return to football, presumably next season:

"I don’t even think that’s a conversation where he’s talking about being done," Greco said. "I know he wants to be out there as soon as he can. Like I said all along, Jason’s just trying to figure out what’s going on with him right now, and we’re behind him. So anyway we can help, I will."

Taking Pinkston's roster spot is OG Jarrod Shaw. Shaw spent all of last season on the Browns' practice squad, and he had been on the team's practice squad for the first seven weeks of the season in 2012. According to the Akron Beacon Journal, taking Shaw's spot on the practice squad is local offensive lineman Bryant Browning:

The Browns also signed offensive lineman Bryant Browning to their practice squad. Browning, a Cleveland native who attended Glenville High School and Ohio State University, spent the first six weeks of this season on the Carolina Panthers' practice squad before having his contract terminated on Oct. 16.

I'm sure some of you will be familiar with Browning due to his local ties.
