CLEVELAND — A statement on Browns offensive lineman Jason Pinkston was released Monday, although specific details on the athlete’s condition were withheld.

It was sent by the Browns and Schwartz & Feinsod and said:

“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.”

Head coach Mike Pettine previously told Fox 8 News Pinkston was “unavailable to practice.”

At that time, he said there was a possibility Pinkston could return to the team at some point.
