New York Jets WR Terrelle Pryor will miss his second straight preseason game, revealing to reporters on Monday he’s still nursing a broken ankle.
The Terrelle Pryor reunion with the Washington Redskins will have to wait.
Per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Pryor, the newly acquired Jets receiver ruled himself out for this Thursday’s preseason game at his former stomping grounds, FedEx Field, (8:00 p.m. ET, ESPN) where he spent last season as a member of the Redskins.
According to Mehta, Pryor revealed he broke his ankle in May, and he is slowly easing himself back into football activities, dealing with hip issues as he gets back to running.
Mehta further reports that Pryor is working in 10 snaps her practice during team drills, and while he won’t play against Washington, he does plan to partake in one of the Jets’ remaining two preseason games against the Giants and Eagles.
Pryor was limited to nine games last season with the Redskins, dealing with an ankle injury for a majority of the season. He eventually opted for season-ending surgery and was placed on injured reserve in November.
Peter Hailey of NBC Sports Washington revealed that Pryor went into further detail about his ailment from last season.
“My biggest thing was, last year, every time I caught a ball and I got wrapped by my ankle, I re-tweaked it,” he explained.
Pryor injured the ankle during a Week 2 showdown against the Los Angeles Rams and tallied 240 yards and one touchdown on 20 receptions last season.
He signed a one-year deal with the Jets in March, with New York being his fourth NFL team. He entered the league as a quarterback in 2011 as a supplemental draft pick of the Oakland Raiders. His career-best season came in Cleveland in 2016, picking up 77 receptions, 1,007 yards and four touchdowns.
