Terrelle Pryor Concussed in MNF Loss to Broncos
Terrelle Pryor took the hardest hit I've ever seen him take in last night's Monday Night Football loss to the Broncos. The GIF above doesn't really do it justice, but it's no surprise to anyone who saw the hit that Pryor ended up concussed. To his credit/detriment, he was able to shake the hit off before taking two more snaps (both incompletions) before being pulled from the game in favor of Matt Flynn the backup wunderkind.
After the game, Pryor sent out this tweet:
Sorry about the loss RaiderNation. I don't remember much ! Good hit by whoever it was. I heard our team fought well .. We will be back!— Terrelle Pryor (@TerrellePryor) September 24, 2013
Given that he wasn't knocked out until the fourth quarter: Yikes.
It's a shame too, because Pryor has definitely improved in all facets in the game. As Ramzy noted last night on Twitter, it's almost bizarre watching him play with actual throwing mechanics and being able to put appropriate amount of touch on his passes.
O! what could have been at Ohio State... and Pryor was pretty damn good for the Buckeyes:
