In Pryor’s first game with the Bills, he was on the field for 83% of the team’s snaps. On Sunday against the Jets, he saw just 43% of snaps. His brief stint in Buffalo is now over after catching just two passes for 17 yards.
The former Ohio State quarterback broke out in 2016 with the Browns, tallying 77 catches for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns. He joined the Redskins after that on a one-year contract, but was unable to take advantage of the platform deal. His 2017 season ended with a 20/240/1 stat line, and he has a similar 16/252/2 line through eight games this year.
It’s fair to wonder whether injuries are still hampering Pryor’s production. The Jets released Pryor in October while he was dealing with a groin strain. Days later, he declared himself to be close to 100% healthy, but he didn’t look all that sharp with the Bills. The 29-year-old had a couple of solid performances with the Jets this fall, so there’s still reason to believe that Pryor can be a difference maker in the NFL.
