Found October 19, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:
The Friday injury report is out concerning the Browns game this Sunday versus the Colts. No big surprises as Scott Fujita, Dimitri Patterson and Jason Pinkston are all listed as out. Important questionable players include Trent Richardson, Mohamed Massaquoi, Travis Benjamin and Ahtyba Rubin. Certainly looks like the Browns have the advantage in the injury report. The Colts officially won’t have Robert Mathis or Donald Brown. Dwight Freeney practiced fully. Of course the big news out of all this is the scary blood clot that hospitalized Jason Pinkston. It is reportedly in his lung. Anyone who has dealt with blood clots – or embolisms as they’re called if they form in one part of the body and travel to another – will tell you just how scary they can be.
