Pinkston feels grateful to be alive following a health scare that ended his season. The Cleveland Browns guard was hospitalized in October following a game against Cincinnati with blood clots in his lungs.

He said he feels "normal" and is looking forward to resuming his career. Pinkston said he thought he only had bronchitis in the week leading up to being hospitalized. He continues to take blood thinners. The ordeal has changed Pinkston's view on life, he said.
