Pettine: Terrelle Pryor's window with team narrowing

Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine threw a warning shot Terrelle Pryor's way after Saturday's practice, but it's hard to catch anything when you're stuck on the sidelines with a hamstring injury.

"That window narrows every day that he's not out there," Pettine said, in reference to Pryor's absence from Browns camp, according to Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer.

Pettine and the Browns certainly took a flyer on Pryor when they signed him in an attempt to convert him into a wide receiver. Now, it looks like he's running out of chances. Pryor hasn't appeared in either of Cleveland's preseason games and the dreaded Cut Day is looming right around the turn of the month.

Coming back from a hamstring injury at the wide receiver position would be taxing for any NFL veteran. But when you're a converted wideout -- like Pryor is -- it must be an entirely different struggle.

Regardless, Pryor should heed Pettine's words and take them personally. If he doesn't get back on the practice field in Berea, his NFL career could be in danger.
