While the Jets said they expected WR Terrelle Pryor to miss several games with a groin injury, he told reporters on Wednesday that he was only going to miss one game.

Let’s shut that one down how I was [going to be] out for five or six games,” Pryor said, via “I was going to miss a game, and then I got cut. So I guess, I don’t know if I wasn’t a part of their plan, or whatever it was.

Pryor did, however, say that he doesn’t have any resentment for the Jets.

“I have so much love for the Jets, the organization, the defense there, the offense there. I have great friends there,” Pryor said. “I have nothing for respect. [It will be] just like any other game. I’m not their teammate now. I got a lot of love.

“Resentment, you can’t [have] because it’s business. Obviously, I was pretty upset. It’s embarrassing when you get cut, whether it’s from an injury — I know it’s injury, I had a tear — so obviously it’s embarrassing. But I have nothing but respect for [Jets] coach [Todd] Bowles over there and [general manager] Mike MacCagnan, and all the coaches that I had. I loved it over there. I loved them. So I have no harsh feelings. Business is business and I definitely appreciate them giving me the opportunity.”

  • Manish Mehta reports that the Jets were interested in bringing back Pryor when he got healthy from his groin tear. However, they didn’t think he could help them now because of it.


Patriots HC Bill Belichick admitted that the team’s current running back depth is a bit of a concern.

We just got back a few hours ago, so we’ll kind or recalibrate here and see where we’re at relative to who’s available and how we want to structure our game plan and what we want to do there,” Belichick said on WEEI, via NBC Sports Boston. “That’s one of the things we’re going through. But it’s a consideration, and I’d say it’s a concern.”
