Pryor has surgery; back by April 1
Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee earlier this week.
Team spokeswoman Shelly Poe confirmed to ESPN.com that Pryor had a routine arthroscopic procedure and should make a speedy recovery. The team said the surgery was successful and expects Pryor to be back to 100 percent before spring practice, which begins April 1.
Pryor revealed before the Rose Bowl that he had been dealing with a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees. The quarterback indicated the injury was in his left knee, though this week's procedure was performed on the right knee, Poe said.
Pryor told reporters last month in Columbus that his knee was still hurting and he planned to have it re-examined by doctors.
Pryor comes off the best performance of his career in the Rose Bowl, passing for 266 yards and two touchdowns and rushing for 72 yards in a win against Oregon.
