The Browns don't expect to use the franchise tag on Pryor (finger), Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Browns want Pryor back, that's not in question. What matters is the price it would take to re-sign him. Should Cleveland slap Pryor with the franchise tag, they'd be on the hook to pay him north of $15 million in 2017. By comparison, Julio Jones and A.J. Green are scheduled to make $11.5 million and $10.3 million in base salary, respectively. The deadline to assign franchise tags is March 1. After that, Pryor and the Browns have until March 9 to reach a long-term deal or else the receiver will hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent. In other news, Pryor is progressing from the finger surgery he required in mid-January as the video he posted on Twitter today revealed he's now able to hold weight in his right hand. Barring any sort of setback, he should be full go for the start of offseason workouts in April regardless of whichever team he belongs to.

Pryor, who had surgery Jan. 4 to repair a torn ligament in his right middle finger, revealed Tuesday that he's expected to be in a cast for four weeks, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor played Cleveland's final three regular season games with his finger injury, catching 14 passes on 24 targets for 149 yards over that span. Despite avoiding the sideline because of his ailment, Pryor was always expected to undergo surgery after the season to repair his problem. In doing so to start 2017, Pryor will now need to sport a cast for the next month, but he should have plenty of time to return to full health while fielding free agent offers this offseason.

Pryor will undergo surgery to repair the torn ligament in his injured finger Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was able to play through the finger issue during the latter portion of the 2016 season, and ultimately surpassed 1,000 yards receiving in his first campaign as a wide receiver. He's expected to rehab in Cleveland, while the injury should be a distant memory by the time training camp rolls around.

Pryor closed out the 2016 season with seven receptions (11 targets) for 94 yards during Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

EDGE Analysis

In his first season as a full-time wide receiver, Pryor greatly exceeded expectations, finishing with 77 receptions for 1,004 yards and four touchdowns, despite rather subpar quarterback play. He's set to become an unrestricted free agent in 2017, and while Cleveland would surely love to have him back, he may have other thoughts. But no matter where he ends up, he should be considered a more-than-solid fantasy wide receiver going forward.

Pryor turned five targets into three catches for 36 yards in Saturday's 20-17 win over the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor finished second to tight end Gary Barnidge in both targets and yardage. The quarterback-turned-wide receiver has faded down the stretch with just 58 yards over the past three weeks. His poor chemistry with quarterback Robert Griffin may not be a problem in the season finale, though, as Griffin left this contest with a concussion and may not be cleared for action by then.

Pryor (finger) does not carry an injury designation for Saturday's game against the Chargers.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor, who the Browns listed as a full practice participant Friday, will tough it out through his finger issue this weekend. That said, over the team's last two games, Pryor has been limited to five catches for just 22 yards, which dims his Week 16 fantasy prospects in the Browns' Robert Griffin-helmed offense.

Pryor (finger) was limited at Wednesday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Pryor faces a procedure down the road to repair the middle finger on his right hand, the wideout has expressed his intent to play through the issue over the last two weeks of the NFL season. While the Browns may end up listing Pryor as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers, expect the wideout to tough it out this weekend.

Pryor will undergo surgery on his finger shortly after the Browns' season finale on Jan. 1, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor is expected to play out the final two games of the season with a torn ligament in his finger, which will require a splint in order to extend the injured appendage. Although he proved his ability to catch during Tuesday's drills, managing pain will determine how effective he'll fare down the stretch.

Head coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday that he expects Pryor (finger) to suit up Saturday versus the Chargers, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor is following a path to active status, including catching all passes thrown to him during Tuesday's practice. His ability to complete the task, seemingly without issue, backs up Jackson's sentiment that pain tolerance will determine whether Pryer takes the field or not in Week 16. The release of Wednesday's injury report should provide the first inkling of Pryor's potential to play.
