Pittsburgh Police have arrested free-agent wideout Terrelle Pryor after he was stabbed, the authorities announced on Saturday.

The Pittsburgh Bureau of Police released a statement saying Pryor's injuries were sustained during a dispute where a female victim was also injured. Pryor, 30, faces a charge of simple assault. Authorities also arrested Shalaya Briston, 24, of Munhall, Penn., and she has been charged with criminal attempt homicide and aggravated assault.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Pryor was stabbed in the chest and shoulder at his Pittsburgh apartment and had to undergo surgery.

Police were called to UPMC Mercy Hospital for a male stabbing victim who arrived just after 4:30 a.m. ET. The Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office confirmed to the Associated Press that Pryor was that victim.

Gregory Diulus, Pryor's agent, told the Associated Press that the wideout is expected to make a full recovery and family members are with him at the hospital. According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Pryor is in stable condition.

Pryor has not played during the 2019 NFL regular season and became a free agent when the Jaguars released him in early September. He's been with five teams in seven career seasons and played for both the Jets and Bills in 2018.
