Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Redskins WR Terrelle Pryor is undergoing surgery on his injured ankle Monday.

According to Rapoport, this procedure is a scope and both he and the team should know more about the timetable to return in the coming days.

Pryor has been dealing with the ankle injury for a few months now and has been trying to play through it, but was clear that surgery could be an option for him.

Pryor, 28, was taken by the Raiders in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft. He lasted a little over three years in Oakland before he was traded to the Seahawks for a seventh-round pick that ultimately became DB Jonathan Dowling.

Pryor briefly played for the Chiefs and Bengals before later being claimed off of waivers by the Browns. Cleveland elected to cut him loose to make room for RB Robert Turbin last year before bringing him back.

The Browns signed him to a one-year, $1.67 million restricted deal in 2016. Pryor signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Redskins last March.

In 2017, Pryor has appeared in nine games for the Redskins and caught 20 passes for 240 yards receiving and one touchdown.
