Jets release WR Pryor

The New York Jets have officially released reciever Terrelle Pryor, a former quarterback at Ohio State.

The Jets have also ruled out wide receiver Quincy Enunwa for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a high ankle sprain. Enunwa is expected to miss three to four weeks.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Pryor was expected to miss at least two weeks anyway due to a tear in his groin, but said the Jets would be interested in bringing him back when he's healthy.

Pryor, who was listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup, had a season-high five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in last week's win over Indianapolis -- his second straight game with a score.

For the season, Pryor has 14 catches for 235 yards and the two touchdowns. He signed a one-year contract with New York in March.

A former third-round pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 NFL Draft, Pryor moved to receiver in the NFL after starring at quarterback for the Buckeyes.

Pryor had a disappointing season with the Washington Redskins in 2017, catching only 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown after he signed a one-year, $8 million contract.

That was a major drop-off in production after he erupted for 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four scores the previous season with the Cleveland Browns.
