News you need to know
From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Oct 24): Pryor did play in the game on Sunday after being listed as questionable to play on Friday (hamstring injury), but local reports after the game suggested that he was limited by the injury and unable to play at his peak abilities.
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 24): Pryor was ineffective and limited by his hamstring in Week 7, and it's fair to wonder if we should trust him in Week 8 unless he has a full practice.

2016 Week 7 vs CIN (4 / 2 / 18 / 0 rec)
Pryor didn't practice all week with a hamstring strain and he appeared limited in this contest against the Bengals. He only caught two passes and didn't make any of the big splash plays that fans have become accustomed to seeing out of him. He was really only targeted on short routes as the Browns elected not to take any deep shots to him in this game. This was a departure from Cleveland's normal game plans, where the offense usually dials up at least one or two deep shots for Pryor. The slow game can certainly be chalked up to Pryor not being 100%.
2016 Week 6 vs TEN (13 / 9 / 75 / 2 rec, 1 / 3 / 0 rush)
Pryor was heavily involved against the Titans, operating as Cody Kessler's favorite target. He also saw two snaps at quarterback, both coming in the first half. He rushed for three yards on the first and completed a one-yard pass on the other. Pryor saw two end zone targets in the second quarter. The first was underthrown, which allowed Parrish Cox to break the pass up. He bounced back a few plays later to haul in a seven-yard touchdown pass. He outjumped two defenders to make the play. In the fourth quarter, Kessler took a deep shot to him down the left sideline, but he was unable to stay inbounds on the catch. Later in the fourth, Pryor gator armed a pass on a short slant on third-and-one, but he made up for it on the next play by leaping over a defender on fourth-and-one to make a grab for a first down. Pryor's second touchdown of the game came on a short screen which saw Duke Johnson "pick" his defender on his route. Pryor made the easy four-yard reception for the score.
2016 Week 5 vs NE (6 / 5 / 48 / 0 rec, 2 / 3 / 0 rush)
Pryor continues to come along as a receiver. While he didn't have a huge game, he remains the team's best weapon on offense. It's hard to say how much wild cat was originally in the game plans for Pryor before Kessler went down, but Pryor did take one such snap in the first quarter while Kessler was still in the game. Pryor stepped in at quarterback for the first two snaps after Kessler was injured. He rushed on the first and recovered his own fumble on the tackle. Pryor then shifted back to receiver with Charlie Whitehurst taking over under center. In the second quarter Pryor had Malcolm Butler beat on the right side and drew a pass interference penalty which gained about 18 yards for the offense. Pryor finished up the game taking a few more quarterback snaps after Charlie Whitehurst injured his knee. He completed one pass for five yards in that time.
2016 Week 4 vs WAS (9 / 5 / 46 / 1 rec, 1 / -6 / 0 rush)
In the first half, Pryor looked like he was on his way to a huge game against Josh Norman, but Norman really stepped up in the second half and held Pryor to just one catch after halftime. A week after seeing extensive work under center, Pryor only handled one wild cat snap on the first drive, losing six yards on the play. Pryor showed great body control on his first catch, making the grab on the sideline while dragging his toe inbounds before stepping out. He did have one five-yard catch nullified by an offsides penalty in the second quarter. Pryor was impressive on his touchdown catch, beating double coverage and running from left to right across the end zone. Later in the second quarter, Pryor had Josh Norman beat for a deep pass on the right side, but Norman recognized that he was about to get burned and grabbed Pryor for the pass interference penalty. Pryor's only catch in the second half came with around three minutes left in the game on a short slant. Credit goes to Norman for shaking off a slow first half to clamp down on Pryor in the second half.
2016 Week 3 vs MIA (14 / 8 / 144 / 0 rec, 4 / 21 / 1 rush)
Pryor had a breakout game against the Dolphins as he was the best player on the field for the Browns. Hue Jackson was creative with Pryor, having him take several snaps as the wildcat quarterback. Pryor did damage all over the field including completing a few passes on the run (although he should have been credited with an interception but the defender dropped the ball). He was effective on the ground, taking several carries and running in a touchdown from the wildcat. Pryor would have had more yardages on the ground, but he had a 10-yard run nullified by a holding penalty. In the passing game, Pryor operated as Kessler's favorite target as he was peppered with targets by the rookie. Kessler even took one of his few deep shots of the game to Pryor, which was not completed, although it resulted in a roughing the passer penalty. Pryor also saw one red zone target, but was unable to reel it in as he was well-covered by Byron Maxwell. The ball was in the right spot, but Maxwell made a great play to break up the pass.
2016 Week 2 vs BAL (10 / 3 / 32 / 0 rec)
Pryor was heavily targeted, leading the team with 10 targets. McCown looked his way often and threw to him even while he was closely covered. The quarterback took several downfield shots to Pryor, but the two were unable to connect. Pryor saw an end zone target from McCown in the first quarter, but he was well-covered by Jimmy Smith. The ball looked slightly overthrown, so it's hard to say whether he would have made the catch anyway. Pryor made a 20-yard catch at the end of the game which looked like it put the Browns on the two yard line, but he was called for taunting. It appeared that Pryor was just trying to throw the ball to the official after the play, but the ball slipped and bounced off of the defender's shoulder. Either way, the 20-yard catch was nullified. Josh McCown targeted Pryor near the end zone on the next pass, but Pryor had three defenders around him and the pass was picked off to end the game.
2016 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 3 / 68 / 0 rec)
Pryor was heavily involved in the first half of the game, making all three of his catches. The big wideout's production in the second half suffered as Robert Griffin saw intense pressure from Philadelphia's pass rush. His second catch showed his potential as a dangerous deep threat as he used his big frame to make a catch deep down the left sideline. He reached right over defensive back Nolan Carroll to secure the pass. Pryor saw one end zone target from Griffin, but the ball was off-target and Pryor was unable to make a one-hand grab. It doesn't appear he would have had room to get his feet in bounds even if he had held on to the ball.
Latest NewsBrowns | Terrelle Pryor quiet in Week 7 (Sun Oct 23, 04:54 PM) - Cleveland Browns WR Terrelle Pryor caught two passes for 18 yards against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 7. Our View: Pryor was not playing every snap and then what remaining value he had this week vanished when rookie Kevin Hogan got in at quarterback. He seemed to emerge unscathed from the game, and could even benefit in Week 8 if Josh McCown gets the start over a concussed Cody Kessler.
