Terrelle Pryor suffers hamstring injury

One of the few bright spots of this season in Cleveland has been the emergence of Terrelle Pryor as one of the best young receivers in the NFL. But for the Browns, even that silver lining has an injury-related cloud.

Pryor is suffering from a hamstring injury, Browns coach Hue Jackson said today. Jackson said only that he would see how Pryor feels this week and had no further prognosis on whether Pryor will miss any games.

A former quarterback who bounced around the league without finding much success, Pryor switched to wide receiver and has emerged as a force in Cleveland this year. Pryor has 33 catches for 413 yards and three touchdowns.

Pryor is playing on a one-year, $1.67 million contract this season. Keeping him in 2017 and beyond will be expensive, but losing one of the team’s best young talents would be costly as well.

    Giants fan.

    This is the best story of the NFL.

    Gotta love how at one point in the Miami game, he led the team in passing, rushing, and receiving.

    He has a long NFL career ahead of him.

    Gee, I would have thought he would injure his mouth first. With all the talking he does.

    Can’t help but root for the guy myself. Anyone who wants it bad enough to switch positions and do anything and everything the team needs is a great guy and says a lot about his character. I’m looking at you, Tebow…

    As a Chiefs fan, I’ve been a Pryor homer since he joined the Raiders. His arm wasn’t there, but his athleticism is undeniable, and I’ve been rooting for him to succeed since he entered the league. Fortunately, he put his ego and aspirations of playing QB aside in order to stay in the league. (he also joined both of my fantasy teams prior to Week 1🙂 )

    It does make you wonder why more guys with great athletic ability like Pryor don’t swallow their pride and adapt to excel in other facets of the game. Good for him.

    It would be a very Browns move to let him go.

    You put this guy on the field with a different team that has a competent QB? He will put up huge numbers.

    Glad that Cleveland Dog Pile player is hurt – hard to respect someone who has so little talent.

    Pryor has found his niche in the NFL. I hope he recovers soon, he’s been fun to watch.
