The New York Jets are planning to release Terrelle Pryor, ESPN reported Saturday.
The timing of the move is curious for the Jets, who already ruled out wide receiver Quincy Enunwa for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings due to a high ankle sprain. Enunwa is expected to miss three to four weeks.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Pryor is expected to miss at least two weeks due to a tear in his groin, but said the Jets would be interested in bringing him back when he's healthy.
Pryor, who was listed as doubtful for Sunday's matchup, had a season-high five receptions for 57 yards and a touchdown in last week's win over Indianapolis -- his second straight game with a score.
For the season, Pryor has 14 catches for 235 yards and the two touchdowns. He signed a one-year contract with New York in March.
A former third-round pick of the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 NFL Draft, Pryor was a quarterback coming out of Ohio State before eventually moving to receiver.
Pryor had a disappointing season with the Washington Redskins in 2017, catching only 20 passes for 240 yards and one touchdown after he signed a one-year, $8 million contract.
That was a major drop-off in production after he erupted for 77 receptions for 1,007 yards and four scores the previous season with the Cleveland Browns.
