Ohio State redshirt freshman running back Evan Pryor is likely to skip the 2022 season after suffering a torn patellar tendon at practice Monday, per Austin Ward of Dotting The Eyes.

ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg also confirmed that Pryor, who played in four games last season and amassed 22 touches for 106 yards and something touchdown, will skip the 2022 campaign aswell.

Pryor was slated to back up TreVeyon Henderson and Miyan Williams. Per Ward, Pryor “was generating probably the most excitement of the young offensive weapons following a breakout spring camp.” He continued to accomplish well at camp in August.

Pryor tweeted the next note Tuesday:

EP @evanpryor3

Appreciate all the prayers and obtain well wishes. But that is just the beginning to an incredible story. I am back #Buckeyes

Pryor played senior high school ball at William Amos Hough SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL in Cornelius, NEW YORK. He was a 247Sports 4-star recruit and ranked No. 83 overall in the class of 2021.

Without Pryor, the Buckeyes only have three healthy scholarship running backs on the roster in Henderson, Williams and true freshman Dallan Hayden, per Rittenberg.

Ohio State, which won the Rose Bowl last season and finished No. 6 in the ultimate Associated Press poll, opens the 2022 campaign in the home on Saturday, Sept. 3 against Notre Dame. The Buckeyes begin this year No. 2 in the AP poll.
