However, this isn’t the first time Pryor has been lucky enough to be alive.

In November 2019, after an argument, he was stabbed by his now ex-girlfriend Shalaya Briston with a kitchen knife and lost three and a half liters of blood.

His lawyer, Stephen Colafella, said at the time that he had dinner with Briston and some friends on Nov. 30.

After a minor dispute, Colafella claimed, Pryor decided to go home while others stayed at the party.

He said in a TMZ Article from the time Pryor went to sleep but was awakened outside his apartment by Briston and two of her friends.

When he tried to leave, Colafella claimed, one of the women punched him in the face, whereupon Briston grabbed a kitchen knife and stabbed him twice.

The former NFL player reportedly suffered a “very deep” stab wound above his left chest that just missed a major artery, and was also stabbed in the left shoulder.

However, a police report quoted a witness as saying that Pryor attacked Briston and a group of friends, after which Briston stabbed him.

Ultimately, an attempted manslaughter against Briston was withdrawn, according to… CBS Pittsburgh, and she pleaded guilty to simple assault, serving two years’ probation, while Pryor pleaded guilty to harassment and was given 90 days’ probation.

Pryor was considered one of the top high school recruits when he signed with the Ohio State Buckeyes in 2008, eventually becoming the Rose Bowl MVP in his sophomore season.

He made the most touchdown passes in school history, at age 57, and has the second most wins in the school, with a total of 31 wins by the end of his career, according to the college athletics department.

Pryor was taken by the Oakland Raiders in the 2011 supplemental draft and spent his first three NFL seasons as a quarterback before transitioning to receiver in 2015 as a member of the Cleveland Browns.

There he set career highs, with 77 receptions, 1,007 yards gained and four touchdowns in 2016.

From there, Pryor played for several teams, including the Washington football team, the Buffalo Bills, the New York Jets, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, which eventually released him in the 2019 preseason.

He has said he wants to continue his professional football career, telling TMZ last year that he has been in talks with several teams, including the Patriots, about a possible comeback, but he remains a free agent.
