The theme across the NFL this season has been injuries. It seems like every team has suffered at least one significant blow.
While this isn't back-breaking, it's certainly not good news for Washington. When the Redskins signed Terrelle Pryor in the offseason, fans were jacked up.
It appeared, at the time, to be an incredible move, as the Redskins were looking to solidify their air attack behind the arm of Kirk Cousins.
And although Cousins has been efficient for the Redskins, putting the team in positions to win week after week, Pryor has simply disappointed. Now, it looks like he could be sidelined for some time.

This news comes shortly after the team found out they'd be without Chris Thompson after he suffered a gruesome knee injury.
Samaje Perine and Josh Doctson will have to step up, and the team will certainly need some help from Jamison Crowder, who has also been seeing an uptick in targets in the wake of these injuries.
It's not just surgery, though. Pryor is now headed to IR and will be out for the remainder of the season.

This hurts the Redskins, but also Pryor. He was on a one-year deal with Washington. After he struggled so much this season, it's going to be tough for the former Ohio State star to land a new contract.
