Jets receiver Terrelle Pryor revealed on Monday that he broke his ankle during OTAs in May. The ankle injury required surgery and came as the result of a lingering foot injury that kept him sidelined during the 2017 season.

Pryor revealed Monday that he suffered a broken ankle during offseason workouts that required surgery. That injury came as Pryor was recovering from a foot injury that cost him most of the 2017 season, when he was playing with the Redskins.
The 29-year-old wide receiver said Monday, after a joint practice with Washington, that he’s fully recovered from the foot and ankle injuries.
“I’m just happy as hell that I’m healthy,” Pryor said. “I’m able to walk. I don’t have to worry about pain in my foot, pain in my ankle. I beat two surgeries, man, so I’m here, I thank god.”
Pryor won’t play in the Jets preseason game on Thursday, although he is hopeful to get into some preseason action. The Jets season doesn’t live or die with Pryor, but they probably would prefer him to be on the field and healthy.
