PITTSBURGH (AP) — A prosecutor’s office says NFL wide receiver Terrelle Pryor was stabbed in Pittsburgh, but there was no immediate word on his condition.

Allegheny District Attorney spokesman Mike Manko confirmed Saturday that Pryor was the victim of a stabbing. Manko said he had no other information, including where and when the stabbing occurred.

A Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman said earlier that city officers were called to UPMC Mercy after a stabbing victim walked into the hospital just after 4:30 a.m. Saturday, but she didn’t confirm that the victim was Pryor. She said it wasn’t known where the stabbing occurred.
