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.
