Report: Terrelle Pryor has torn ligament in finger, needs offseason surgery

By Jesse Reed

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Terrelle Pryor reportedly is dealing with a torn ligament in his finger but will wait until after the season to have it repaired.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reported Pryor injured the finger during Cleveland’s blowout loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. At that time, it was not known if the ligament was torn.

The past two weeks, Pryor’s game has significantly fallen off. He has caught just five passes for 22 yards in those two games against Buffalo and the Cincinnati Bengals, though his overall season totals are still impressive. With two games remaining, he has a chance to eclipse 1,000 yards. As things stand, he has caught 67 passes for 877 yards and four touchdowns this year.

The Browns still have games against the San Diego Chargers and Pittsburgh Steelers before their miserable season comes to an end. With a record of 0-14, a winless finish seems likely, though anything can happen on any given Sunday in the NFL.
