Jets wide receiver Terrelle Pryor suffered another ankle injury this offseason and was unable to join his team for OTAs on Tuesday morning, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News tweets. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but it’s not a great sign for the Jets newcomer after he underwent ankle surgery in November.
Pryor joined the Jets on a one-year, $4.5MM deal this offseason after a disappointing year with the Redskins. Pryor had just 20 catches, 240 yards, and one touchdown in nine games for Washington last year, but the Jets took a small gamble on him with the hope that he could reprise his 2016 showing with Cleveland when he posted more than 1,000 yards receiving.
On paper, the Jets have a solid group of receivers headlined by Pryor, Robby Anderson, Jermaine Kearse, and a healthy Quincy Enunwa. However, Pryor’s health and Anderson’s ongoing legal issues could put the Jets behind the 8 ball as the season starts.
If Pryor or Anderson miss time, that could open up opportunities for veteran Andre Roberts as well as 2017 picks ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen. For a complete look at the Jets’ depth chart, you can check out their page on Roster Resource.
