Pryor recorded his only reception of the season in Sunday's loss to Pittsburgh, a 42-yard fade from Austin Davis. Pryor had competed for a roster spot in camp, but was ultimately let go in favor of more experienced wide receiver options. When those options were severely depleted towards the end of the season, the team brought Pryor back to provide depth. He ended up with eight total targets over the three games in which he was active, but Sunday's catch proved to be the only play of the season in which he produced positive yardage. The converted quarterback will likely be a fringe roster option in 2016, whether it be in Cleveland or elsewhere. He has the size and skills to be a successful receiver in the league, but lacks experience at the position at this point in his career.
Pryor (coach's decision) is inactive Sunday against the Chiefs. Pryor was targeted twice in the Week 15 loss to Seattle, but has failed to log a reception in each of the two games he's been active for in 2015. With special teams ace Marlon Moore (ribs) and fellow wideout Taylor Gabriel (non-injury related) both active for the contest, the depth Pryor could have provided looks to have been deemed unnecessary.
Pryor was not targeted in Sunday's victory over the 49ers. Pryor made his regular season debut with the team, and although he didn't see many looks from quarterback Johnny Manziel, the wideout did make it on the field for 16 offensive snaps. With Sunday's target leader, Brian Hartline, out for the season with a broken collarbone, there suddenly may be more targets to go around in Cleveland. However, the pending returns of Taylor Gabriel (concussion) and Andrew Hawkins (concussion) may limit Pryor's opportunities.
Pryor is active for the first time this season Sunday against the 49ers. Pryor re-signed with the Browns on Dec. 1 after spending time with the organization earlier in the year, but will see the field Sunday for the first time. Per Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, the wideout will see approximately a dozen snaps in the contest. His exact production will be difficult to predict, as the converted quarterback has had limited time to get acclimated with Sunday's starter, Johnny Manziel. Nonetheless, Pryor will look to take advantage of the opportunity awarded him due to the absence of both Andrew Hawkins and Taylor Gabriel, who are both inactive due to concussions. Due to all the surrounding uncertainty, calling Pryor a risky fantasy play would be putting it lightly.
Pryor is expected to get some playing time at receiver Sunday against the 49ers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. "Terrelle looks good. I don't know if he's ready to take on a full role, but there's a chance that there will be some involvement in the plan there," said coach Mike Pettine on Friday. Pryor, who re-signed with the Browns at the beginning of December after trying out for several teams, will see his first regular season action as a receiver Sunday when the Browns take on the 49ers. Coach Pettine's comments indicate that Pryor will be utilized to some extent against San Francisco, but owners should temper their expectations given that he directly stated that he won't get a full complement of snaps. That said, the Browns have four receivers listed as questionable heading into the contest, so Pryor could be more than just a gimmick in the offense Sunday if any of those pass catchers are sidelined.
