It’s not clear the name of the individual who was in connection with the stabbing. However, according to Pittsburgh’s Action 4 News, a woman has been arrested and is being held at police headquarters in Pittsburgh.
Pryor appeared in six games for the Jets in 2018. During that span of time, he caught 14 balls on 22 targets for 235 yards and two touchdowns. He then dealt with a groin injury prior to his ultimate release. Pryor spent time with the Buffalo Bills thereafter, appearing in two games (one start) and racking up two receptions for 17 yards.
The Oakland Raiders originally selected him in the third round of the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft out of The Ohio State University as a quarterback. Pryor spent three years with the Raiders at that position, with his most productive campaign coming in 2013. In that year, he completed 57.4% of his throws for 1,798 yards, seven touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
Pryor has additionally appeared in regular-season games for the Cleveland Browns and Washington Redskins as a receiver.
