As it turns out, the Browns wide receiver was able to suit up Sunday for a 31-17 loss in which Pryor playfully outlined how head coach Hue Jackson and the staff almost had to restrain him from taking more snaps than his less-than-healthy body could handle.
“There’s a bunch of times where I ran out there and coach was like, ‘Get back in here!’” Pryor said, laughing. “I get into the competing with the guys so I really wanted to get out there and compete and try and help the guys, but what was best for the future weeks coming ahead was that I didn't play that much and run a lot so I thank coach Jackson for thinking of me individually like that, but I just tried to get out there and help as much as I could."
Pryor, who described himself as “80 percent,” was limited to 31 snaps, catching two passes for 18 yards in a game that watched Cleveland’s offense struggle to keep pace with a Bengals unit that totaled 559 yards. The story quoted Pryor as saying this week he expects the injury to be better.

Browns WR Terrelle Pryor (hamstring, questionable) returned to take limited reps Friday after missing practice earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 7. Pryor is “doing everything possible” to play (per Mary Kay Cabot), so he should be considered iffy for Week 7. HC Hue Jackson said that there’s a chance Pryor will play, which doesn’t sound too good. If Pryor can’t play, the Browns would run Rashard Higgins, Ricardo Louis and Andrew Hawkins out there against the Bengals. Yikes.

One of the few bright spots of this season in Cleveland has been the emergence of Terrelle Pryor as one of the best young receivers in the NFL. But for the Browns, even that silver lining has an injury-related cloud.
Pryor is suffering from a hamstring injury, Browns coach Hue Jackson said today.
Jackson said only that he would see how Pryor feels this week and had no further prognosis on whether Pryor will miss any games, according to the story.
Terrelle Pryor has entered the game at quarterback.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand) missed practice again Thursday. He’s out for a few more weeks. With Coleman out, Terrelle Pryor is the clear WR1 in Cleveland with Josh Gordon’s announcement that he’s entering a rehab facility.
Cleveland Browns wide receiver is entering an in-patient rehabilitation facility, the team announced on Thursday.
Gordon was expected to play in his first regular-season game since December 2014 against the Patriots on Oct. 9. He was suspended for the first four games of this season.
Gordon released the following statement through the Browns:
“After careful thought and deep consideration I’ve decided that I need to step away from pursuing my return to the Browns and my football career to enter an in-patient rehabilitation facility. This is the right decision for me and one that I hope will enable me to gain full control of my life and continue on a path to reach my full potential as a person. I appreciate the support of the NFL, NFLPA, the Browns, my teammates, my agent and the community through this extremely challenging process.”
The saga continues. We applaud Gordon for addressing his issues, but this is a blow to the fantasy owners anxiously awaiting his return. Gordon has always been a risk/reward pick. Obviously, he won't be making his return in Week 5, and it might be a few weeks (or much longer) before he's ready to make another comeback. In the meantime, Terrelle Pryor's value gets a significant bump since he'll serve as the team's WR1 until Corey Coleman returns (and maybe longer, if he keeps playing like he did against the Dolphins). It's also a boost to Duke Johnson's stock, since there will be more targets to go around in Cleveland.

Browns WR Corey Coleman (hand, out) missed practice again Friday and is out for Week 3. Coleman will miss 4-6 weeks with a broken hand. Terrelle Pryor is the best bet for fantasy points among the Cleveland receivers.

He was targeted twice in the second quarter but lost his footing and fell both times before the ball arrived. He even lost a shoe the first time.
He squabbled with Pryor during the game.
The story said HC Hue Jackson said Coleman was pressing. Coleman and the rest of the starters will get a chance to redeem themselves in the final preseason game as the starters are expected to play. It's not clear how long the starters will be in the game. Coleman has missed five practices and sat out two preseason games thus far, the story said.
