According to Ian Rapoport, police arrested free-agent WR Terrelle Pryor and charged with Simple Assault after being stabbed at an apartment complex in Pittsburgh on Friday, leaving him in critical condition.
Per TMZ, police have a woman in custody as a person of interest in the stabbing, however, it’s unknown if she is a suspect or just a person of interest. A friend drove Pryor to the hospital.
Jeremy Fowler reports a close family friend of Pryor tells him the receiver is expected to survive the stabbing and doctors are monitoring his progress post-surgery.
Pryor, 29, 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 had brief stints with the Chiefs, Bengals, Browns and Redskins before signing a one-year contract with the Jets worth $4.5 million. New York released him during the 2018 season and he later caught on with the Bills.
The Jaguars signed him to a contract this past June. However, he was placed on injured reserve and cut with a settlement earlier this season.
In 2018, Pryor has appeared in eight games for the Jets and Bills and caught 16 passes for 252 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Pryor and his family at this time.
