Buckeyes' QB Pryor Undergoes Knee Surgery

By  | 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has
undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Team spokeswoman Shelly Poe confirms that Pryor had what she calls routine surgery. She says it will require only minimal rehabilitation and if the Buckeyes had a game next week, Pryor would be available to play.

A heralded recruit out of Jeannette, Pa., Pryor has started for Ohio State the past two seasons.

He capped his sophomore season with a terrific performance in the Rose Bowl last month, passing for a career-high 266 yards and two touchdowns against Oregon. He also rushed for 72 more and threw a 17-yard scoring pass to seal a 26-17 victory.
