The Redskins placed Pryor (ankle) on injured reserve Tuesday, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

The transaction became official one day after Pryor underwent arthroscopic surgery to fix the ankle issue, which has hampered him for much of the season. The injury -- along with Pryor's penchant for dropping passes -- resulted in his unexpected fall down the depth chart before the Redskins decided to shut him down for good, with the wideout finishing his lone campaign in Washington with 20 receptions for 240 yards and a touchdown. He'll likely head elsewhere upon hitting free agency this offseason and could have some bounce-back appeal if he proves healthy and lands in a favorable passing environment.

Pryor (ankle) will be placed on injured reserve, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor missed Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Saints and then had arthroscopic surgery Monday to address an ankle injury that's been nagging him for most of the season. The decision to place him on injured reserve come as no surprise, given that he'd been demoted to a part-time role in recent weeks, essentially serving as the No. 4 receiver. Pryor likely is on board with the decision, hoping to get back to full health before he hits free agency again in the offseason. He'll likely have to settle for another one-year contract, or else accept a massive salary reduction on a multi-year deal. When talking with other teams, Pryor presumably will point to the ankle injury as the primary reason things didn't work out in Washington. Given that he wasn't even listed on the injury report most weeks, there's ample reason for skepticism.

Pryor is having arthroscopic surgery on his injured ankle Monday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor has already missed one game and figures to miss a few more, though the procedure won't necessarily rule him out for the rest of the season. Given that the Redskins are falling out of contention and he's set to hit free agency again in the offseason, Pryor won't have much incentive to risk a late-season return if he doesn't have full confidence in his ankle. It's possible he's put on a Washington uniform for the last time. If so, it was as disappointing of a season as anyone could've imagined. He may have to settle for another prove-it deal in free agency.

Pryor (foot/ankle) admitted that he's worried about his status for the rest of the season, ESPN.com's John Keim reports. "I'm concerned," said Pryor. "I don't want to do surgery. [Anderson] said the stuff he saw in there, he couldn't believe I was still playing on it. ... Hopefully they don't put me on [injured reserve] and I can come back and help them do something."

EDGE Analysis

Pryor originally suffered the injury Week 2 but wasn't listed on the injury report until Week 9. He's now saying it's been an issue all along, which raises some questions about whether player and team have made honest use of the injury reports. In any case, Pryor missed practice Thursday and Friday and has now been ruled out for Sunday's game in New Orleans. A recent MRI apparently was concerning, as he's scheduled to meet with Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday in Charlotte. Given that he's already tumbled down the depth chart and is set to hit free agency again after the season, Pryor figures to prioritize his long-term health over his short-term availability.

Pryor (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game in New Orleans, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was added to injury report Thursday and is now scheduled to visit with a specialist Monday. He hasn't played more than 56 percent of available offensive snaps in any game since Week 6, but the Redskins could've used him this week with fellow depth wideouts Ryan Grant and Brian Quick both recovering from concussions. Jamison Crowder, Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris are the team's only healthy receivers, though it's possible Grant and/or Quick clears the concussion protocol before Sunday's game.

Pryor didn't practice Thursday due to an ankle injury, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Redskins have regularly posted jam-packed injury reports this season, Pryor didn't make an appearance until Thursday. It's unclear when he injured his ankle, but his sudden listing should be cause for concern. Friday's injury report will relay Pryor's odds to play Sunday at New Orleans.

Pryor (undisclosed) wasn't present at the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The impetus for Pryor's absence is unknown, but the Redskins can be expected to clarify whether an injury, personal issue or some other concern is to blame. After receiving at least four targets in each of the first six games of the season, he's experienced only four total across the last three outings, displaying his waning relevance in the league's ninth-ranked passing attack.

Pryor failed to record a reception in his 28 offensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor continues to see decreased offensive reps, as Sunday marked the second time in the last three games he was held without a reception. It seems as if the Redskins are more than content moving forward with Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson as the two featured wideouts in Kirk Cousins' arsenal.

Pryor hauled in two of three targets for 17 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Pryor entered the season as the Redskins' No. 1 wideout -- a pivotal free agent signing given the departure of Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson. However, through the first half of the season it became clear Pryor wasn't producing as the Redskins had hoped (18 receptions for 223 yards and one touchdown in seven games), which resulted in his descent down the depth chart. The past three weeks Pryor has only averaged 28 offensive snaps per contest, as the Redskins seem poised to move forward with Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson as the top wideouts. Pryor is also apparently nursing a couple bruises on his foot, which have contributed to his lack of reps. Look for the veteran to remain as the No. 3 wideout on the depth chart for the time being, diminishing his fantasy value.

Pryor said that his reduced snap counts in the Redskins' last two games have allowed him to recover from two bad bruises on his right foot, John Keim of ESPN.com reports. "It's just not fun. It feels good that I was able to rest it," Pryor said. "I'm dealing with that, fighting that and continue to not put wear and tear on it, so at the end of the day, [the reduced workload] helped me."

EDGE Analysis

Pryor was on the field for a combined 49 snaps the last two weeks in divisional losses to the Eagles and Cowboys, hauling in two of five targets for 15 yards. While playing through the foot injury prior to those contests probably didn't help Pryor, it doesn't completely explain his failure to become the top target in the passing game the Redskins envisioned when they signed him to a one-year deal in the offseason. Through seven games, Pryor has just 18 receptions for 223 yards and one touchdown, which prompted head coach Jay Gruden to move Josh Doctson in the starting lineup at Pryor's expense. With the statuses of Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and Jordan Reed (hamstring) uncertain for Sunday's game against the Seahawks, Pryor could step into more of an enhanced role than he noticed in the last couple of contests, but he'll need to begin producing before becoming anything more than a shaky fantasy play.
