The Cleveland Browns have not been having a great time of things in the past few years, to say the very least.

The Browns managed to have one of the worst drafts ever in 2014, completely messing up their two first round picks by bringing in party-boy quarterback Johnny Manziel, who decided not to study the playbook and ended up in rehab, as well as cornerback Justin Gilbert who has dropped off the face of the Earth.

And now the Browns have had another set-back, with one of their newest wide receivers suffering from an injury.

Pryor Injured

Terrelle Pryor has spent this off-season trying to transform from a below-par quarterback to a wide receiver capable of making a 53-man roster. It seems that his biggest obstacle in this challenge is his hamstring, rather than any technical limitations.

Pryor hurt his hamstring again on Monday, after missing weeks last month with the same injury, sat out Tuesday’s practice with the Bills and is expected to miss Thursday’s game as well. It’s one of many soft-tissue injuries plaguing the team right now and it’s left coach Mike Pettine frustrated with how things have played out this summer.

Pettine Frustrated

“It’s tough,” Pettine said, according to the Akron Beacon Journal. “I think everybody in the league is trying to solve the soft-tissue riddle. We feel that our protocol is tried-and-true, and unfortunately we’re still ending up with some [muscle] pulls."

Pettine said last week that Pryor is neither guaranteed a roster spot nor being written off because he hasn’t been able to stay on the field.

If Pryor does make it as a wide receiver, then he deserves a lot of credit from battling through these injuries and putting in the work.
