Jets Injury Update: 1st round pick, Calvin Pryor, sidelined with concussion

By on 7/28/2014 08:00:00 AM

New York Jets’ rookie FS Calvin Pryor suffered a concussion during practice on Sunday and will be out until further notice.
New York Post writer Brian Costello first reported Pryor’s injured this morning via twitter.

Pryor’s injury was said to be caused by a hard hit to the head Pryor sustained during kick-return duties. reported that the injury “happened Saturday in the Jets' first contact practice, when the first-round draft pick, blocking in a kickoff-return drill, collided with the returner.”

At the University of Louisville, Pryor was able to register 75 total tackles (54 solo tackles), 5.5 tackles for loss (career-high) and three interceptions in 2013.

Luckily for the Jets, Pryor could be back as soon as the next Jets’ practice.

According to, “There is no timetable for his return, since the league's concussion guidelines mandate that he pass a number of cognitive evaluations before he can be cleared. The team has a day off from practice Monday. If Pryor passes the tests, he could be back as early as the next practice on Tuesday.”

With that stated, it seems if Pryor doesn’t come back healthy soon, second-string free safety Antonio Allen will take his place. Allen was able to record 63 tackles and defend seven passes for the Jets in 2013.
