Ohio State's Terrelle Pryor Has Foot Surgery, Buckeyes QB On the Mend

For the second offseason in a row, Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has had surgery. This time, Pryor needed ligaments stabilized in his right ankle, and injury he suffered in the fourth quarter against Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl last season.

Pryor ended the 2009-10 season with arthroscopic surgery on his left knee, and this year, he will have a little extra time to heal. The star quarterback enters his senior year with a five game suspension to start the season for violating team and NCAA rules.

According to ESPN, Pryor will start the rest of his offseason this summer with foot surgery, and the extent of the injury is unknown at this point. Pryor is expected to help the Buckeyes contend for a Big Ten title this year, and the team will have a glimpse into the future with whoever takes over for the first five games of the season.

Coming out in the class of 2008, Pryor was considered one of the top prospects in the entire country, and picked Ohio State over Michigan and others.
