Pryor Underwent Follow-Up Procedure
By Brandon Castel
COLUMBUS, Ohio — Terrelle Pryor was out of his protective boot for the opening day of spring practice last Thursday, but it will be a while before he resumes football activities.
According to Pryor’s personal Twitter account, Ohio State’s senior quarterback began jogging last week, but not before a second surgery on the foot he injured in the Sugar Bowl back on Jan. 4.
A university spokesperson confirmed Monday that Pryor did have a “follow-up” procedure last Monday to remove “hardware” from his left foot, which was injured while diving for a first down during the Buckeyes’ attempt to run out the clock in the fourth quarter against Arkansas.
Pryor had surgery to repair torn ligaments in his foot back in January and was expected to miss all of spring practice, at least from a contact standpoint. The follow-up procedure was expected and does not change the timetable for Pryor’s return.
If he participates in anything this spring, it would likely only be passing drills. There is no reason for Ohio State to rush him back considering he will not be on the field this fall until week six. That’s because Pryor and four of his teammates are suspended for the first five games of the year for violating NCAA rules by selling Big Ten championship rings and other Ohio State gear.
With Pryor out, the Buckeyes will get a better look at the four players vying to replace him in the starting lineup for the first five games.
