Browns OG Jason Pinkston Called In For Duty, Returns from IR

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

OG Jason Pinkston suffered a high ankle sprain just before the start of the regular season, thwarting his comeback attempt from a blood clot in his lung last season. The Cleveland Browns had placed Pinkston on the short-term injured reserve list, meaning he could return half-way through the season. On Tuesday, the Browns made his return to the team official:

Despite the crazy situation down in Miami, offensive linemen typically form a tight-knit unit. We've seen the chemistry grow ever since OG Shawn Lauvao re-joined the starting lineup, and these guys really enjoy being teammates with each other. Unfortunately, with Pinkston leaving, the offensive linemen had to say goodbye to a fellow veteran, OT Rashad Butler:

Butler had only seen a handful of goal line snaps this season as an extra offensive lineman, but also played on special teams. With Pinkston back, the Browns shouldn't miss a beat if one of their guards -- Lauvao or John Greco -- go down with an injury. Although I don't expect Pinkston to unseat one of them in the starting lineup, because of the struggles Cleveland has had in the run blocking department, that possibility always exists too.
