Former NFL Wide Receiver Terrell Pryor Hospitalized After Being Stabbed in Pittsburgh Apartment

Reports just came out that former NFL quarterback and wide receiver Terrelle Pryor has been hospitalized after being stabbed in his Pittsburgh apartment.

Pryor is now in a stable condition after he was admitted to the hospital in critical condition on Friday night with stab wounds to his shoulder and chest.

There is still no indication of what took place that led to Pryor’s stabbing and what, if any, relation he has to the woman who is in police custody for committing the crime.

Pyror, 30, was a standout quarterback at Ohio State, before being drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round back in 2011. Pyror still holds an NFL record for the longest touchdown run by a quarterback for his 93-yard TD run in 2013.

In 2016, after years of struggling to keep a roster spot for various teams as a quarterback, Pyror made the successful transition to becoming a wide receiver for the Cleveland Browns.

Pryor started 15 games for the Browns at receiver in 2016 and caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards. Following the season, Pryor signed a one-year deal with the Washington Redskins.

After stints with the Redskins, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills and the Jacksonville Jaguars over the last couple of years, Pryor is currently a free agent.

Hopefully Pryor is able to make a full recovery from his injuries and can maybe even find his way back to the NFL one day.

Indianapolis Colts Sign TE Jack Doyle to Three-Year, $21 Million Contract Extension

Since 2016, Jack Doyle has become a key contributor for the Indianapolis Colts offense, as he is a very solid all-around tight end.

Doyle has started 47 games during that span and was named a Pro Bowler in 2017.

While he was set to become a free agent following this season, the Colts have decided to lock up the Indiana-native long-term, signing Doyle to a three-year extension.

The contract is worth $21 million and could reach up to $24 million if Doyle hits his incentives.

Doyle went undrafted out of Western Kentucky in 2013 and first signed with the Tennessee Titans. After he failed to make the Titans roster, the Colts signed Doyle and he has been in Indianapolis ever since.

This season, Doyle has made 36 catches for 377 yards and four touchdowns. For his career, Doyle has 236 catches and has racked up 2,105 yards and 18 touchdowns.

Now Doyle will get three more years to add to those numbers, as he will likely finish his career with the Colts.

Oregon Shakes Up College Football Playoff, Beating No. 5 Utah to Win Pac-12 Title

Published

Last night, the Utah Utes essentially had a play-in game to make it into the College Football Playoff for the first time. Utah was ranked No. 5 in the College Football Playoff, with Georgia ranked just ahead of them.

With Georgia set to play LSU in the SEC Championship, a Bulldogs loss, paired with Utah winning the Pac-12 likely would have clinched the Utes spot in the playoff.

Unfortunately for Utah, they were unable to beat Oregon in the Pac-12 Championship Game, leading to the end of their season.

Utah came into the game with the fourth-ranked defense in the nation, but they surely did not play up to that level in the championship game.

Oregon scored more points (37) and gained more yards (432) then Utah had allowed all season.

The Ducks jumped out to a huge 20-0 lead in the first half, which was the largest deficit that Utah had faced all season long.

There was still hope that the Utes could come back though, as they had outscored their opponents by a whopping margin of 193-61 in the second half of games coming into this matchup.

Utah actually started to get back into the game, as Tyler Huntley threw two touchdown to get his team within a score of Oregon.

In the end though, the eventual Pac-12 Championship MVP would not be denied, as Ducks running back CJ Verdell delivered the dagger that iced the game.

Verdell added another long touchdown run later in the fourth quarter, scoring on a 31-yard run to turn the game back into a blowout.

All told, Verdell finished with over 200 yards and carried his team to a great upset victory.

By beating Utah, Oregon has now clinched their place in a premier bowl game, as the Ducks are now heading to the Rose Bowl.

Meanwhile Utah went from potentially being College Football Playoff bound, to losing their conference in embarrassing fashion.

We will see how the College Football Playoff shapes up from here, but one thing is for sure. The Pac-12 will once again not be represented in the tournament this year.

Dallas Cowboys Hit a New Low in Third-Straight Defeat, Losing to the Bears 31-24

The Dallas Cowboys are lucky they play in the NFC East, because despite their failures they are somehow clinging to first place in their division.

While they can take some solace in the standings, Dallas has endured three grueling losses in a row, the latest of which coming at the hands of the Chicago Bears on Thursday night.

While Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky looked better last week, he is by no means the type of player you fear to go up against.

Yet the Cowboys made him look like the best guy on the field at times, as he shockingly carved up their defense for four touchdowns.

All told, Trubisky was 23-for-31 for 244 yards and three touchdown passes. He also added that touchdown on the ground, rushing for a total of 63 yards on 10 carries.

The Cowboys offense on the other hand had no answer for the Bears vaunted defense, as they were able to move the ball but went into the fourth quarter with only seven points on the board.

It was really just more of the same for the Cowboys, as the offense has just stalled over the last couple of weeks.

There may be enough blame to go around for Dallas, but at the end of the day, all of it is going to fall on the head coach as Jason Garrett is in the hottest of seats.

It would be really hard to see the Cowboys make a coaching change midseason, especially when they are still clinging to a lead in the division.

Still, the Philadelphia Eagles could move even with the Cowboys if they beat the lowly New York Giants on Monday Night Football this week. An Eagles win would put two teams with losing records atop the NFC East.

Dallas does own the tiebreaker over the Eagles (for now), after beating them earlier in the season. But the Cowboys will have to travel to Philadelphia in two weeks with the division potentially hanging in the balance.

The Cowboys do have the luxury of controlling their own destiny, as three-straight wins to close out the season would not only clinch a playoff berth but also a playoff game played in Jerry World, as division winners get the home field advantage in the first round.

Some changes need to be made for Dallas to capitalize on that opportunity, otherwise the Eagles might just sneak past them instead.
