Yes: If it is not too uncomfortable to you moving it around but there is no reason that you cannot exercise by running.

Pain, weakness, etc: Rotator cuff disorders (tears, strains, contusions, impingements, tendonopathies/tendonitis, etc) cause activity related shoulder pain. Pain is often worse when lifting or rotating the arm away from the body or with overhead activities including throwing. Pain can occur at rest, particularly at night. Other symptoms include weakness, loss of motion, noise/crepitus. Throwers lose velocity+location.
