Terrelle Pryor has torn ligament in his knee

AP Sports Writer


State quarterback Terrelle Pryor has revealed he partially tore a

ligament in his knee, claiming it didn’t slow him down much while

leading the Buckeyes to the Big Ten title.

Pryor says he’s hurting everywhere at the close of his sophomore

season, which ends Friday in the Rose Bowl against No. 7 Oregon. But he

says he’s feeling sharper after two sluggish practices in Los Angeles

with the eighth-ranked Buckeyes.

In an

affable session with reporters Monday morning, Pryor admitted he has a

partial tear in his posterior cruciate ligament, touching his left knee

for emphasis, but not confirming which knee is hurt.

Ohio State hadn’t mentioned a knee injury for Pryor, only acknowledging an injured ankle against New Mexico State.
