The Browns still aren’t sure when first-rounder Barkevious Mingo will be able to play again, but they’ll get an indication of his progress today when he runs.

Mingo hasn’t done much since suffering a bruised lung against the Lions on August 15, but will test himself this afternoon.

“He’s doing better and he continues to be monitored and is actually going to run a little bit today,” Browns coach Rob Chudzinski said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “We have no timetable. We’ll just have to see how he progresses and how he heals.”

Because of the unusual nature of the injury, the Browns are at a bit of a loss when it comes to providing a time frame. But Chudzinski said there’s no plan to put Mingo on injured reserve/designated for return, indicating that they think he’ll be back sooner rather than later.
