PITTSBURGH — Former Browns wide receiver and Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was arrested on an assault charge after he was stabbed at an apartment complex in Pittsburgh.

Police also arrested Shalaya Briston of Munhall, Pennsylvania, and charged her with criminal attempt homicide and aggravated assault for stabbing Pryor.

Around 4:16 a.m., officers were called to Pryor's Heinz Lofts apartment complex residence for a report of a domestic disturbance.

Witnesses told police Pryor and Briston are in a relationship and were out for drinks. When they got back to the apartment, they got into an altercation.

During the altercation, Briston stabbed Pryor in the chest and shoulder, according to police.

Briston was observed to have a bruise on her nose and was missing false fingernails, police said.

Pryor underwent surgery for his injuries Saturday morning. He is in critical condition but expected to survive, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Pryor was the starting quarterback for the Buckeyes from 2008 to 2010, winning the Big Ten championship twice.

After being drafted by the Raiders in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, Pryor spent time on several teams before converting to a wide receiver in 2015 after being claimed off waivers by the Browns.

The Jeannette, Pennsylvania native recorded 1,049 receiving yards for four touchdowns in his two seasons with the Browns. He signed with the Redskins in 2017 and later spent time on the Jets, Bills, and Jaguars.

Pryor is currently a free agent.
