Terrelle Pryor “doubtful” for return to The Horseshoe

Former Ohio State quarterback and current Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was amped up about his return to the Ohio State football stadium for a scrimmage on Friday. It looks like he might not be able to play in the game after Tuesday’s practice.

According to College Football Talk, Pryor injured his hamstring during training camp practice with the Browns on Tuesday and now his status for Friday’s scrimmage is currently doubtful. Browns head coach Mike Pettine said that it is unlikely that Pryor will play in the scrimmage on Friday.

Pryor was banned from any association with the Ohio State athletic program after his involvement with “Tat-gate” in 2011. He and a few other former Ohio State players were caught trading merchandise, including championship and school rings, for tattoos. Pryor was upset about possibly missing the game, but he is looking to get healthy and ready for the season.

“I don’t look toward Friday,” Pryor said earlier this week. “I do want to go to The Shoe obviously and play, but that’s practice. I want to be out there for the preseason game, the second, third, fourth and the first game of the season. …

“I do want to be out there Friday, but it’s not as big as being in the game.”

The Browns open the regular season on September 13 when they travel to New York to play the Jets.
