Pryor returns to Ohio State as Browns scrimmage

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) Terrelle Pryor has returned to where his college roots rotted.

The former Ohio State quarterback, attempting to make Cleveland's roster as a wide receiver, is back inside Ohio Stadium for the first time since he left the school amid a tattoos-for-memorabilia scandal that led to the firing of coach Jim Tressel and the Buckeyes being sanctioned by the NCAA.

Pryor won't play in the Browns' intrasquad scrimmage because of a hamstring injury, but he will certainly draw the attention of Browns and Buckeyes fans.

Quarterback Johnny Manziel is expected to get the bulk of snaps with Cleveland's first-team offense. Manziel is currently listed as Josh McCown's backup, but the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner has shown improvement in the last few days at training camp.

Before the scrimmage began, Ohio State coach Urban Meyer walked onto the field and talked with Browns coach Mike Pettine.
