Browns injury update: Greg Little returns, Jason Pinkston out vs. Colts

Cleveland Browns starting left guard Jason Pinkston will miss Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts with a blood clot. Pinkston is currently hospitalized at the Cleveland Clinic, and it is unclear when he will be able to return to action:

"As we go through next week, we'll determine if he's going to miss an extended period of time,'' said coach Pat Shurmur.

Pinkston had been suffering symptoms for weeks, and he was forced out of last Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The second-year player out of Pittsburgh was limited in practice Wednesday, and he couldn't participate on Thursday. He checked into the Cleveland Clinic, where the blood clot was discovered.

Wide receiver Greg Little, who was sent home Thursday morning with the flu, returned Friday and should be able to play Sunday against the Colts. Running back Trent Richardson was limited in practice Friday and wore a flack jacket to protect the damaged cartilage in his ribs. He hopes to play Sunday, but the Browns may be cautious with their rookie first-round pick.
