Quarterback-turned-receiver Terrelle Pryor got a chance to dust off his passing skills at Browns practice Tuesday and injured his hamstring in the process.
Pryor completed his first pass to Dwayne Bowe off an end around, then fired what was described as a "wobbling duck" by Northeast Ohio Media Group's Mary Kay Cabot to Travis Benjamin deep down the right sideline. Benjamin caught the pass, but it should've been picked off by Pierre Desir.
Pryor, who sat out the rest of practice with an ice wrap around his hamstring, was self-deprecating about his lack of spin on the ball.
"They said it was wobbly and ugly," Pryor said with a smile. "They said I lost my QB skills. I told them I never had them."
Head coach Mike Pettine said Pryor's hamstring injury isn't believed to be serious, but he'll have a precautionary MRI. Pryor estimated he may miss a day or so but hopes to be back for Friday's scrimmage at his alma mater, Ohio State.
Pryor has made quite an impression so far as a receiver in Browns camp after a failed stint as a quarterback. Cabot believes that Pryor will not only make the team, but will cushion the blow caused by Josh Gordon't season-long suspension.
