Ohio State starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor missed two or three practice periods Friday but should be fine after having what head coach Jim Tressel described as a tired throwing arm.

Tressel said Pryor didn't appear on his medical report Tuesday morning and should be fine for practice Tuesday afternoon. The reigning Big Ten Freshman of the Year reportedly had his elbow wrapped at the end of Friday's practice.

"He'd been doing so much throwing," Tressel said on the Big Ten spring coaches' teleconference. "He's one of those guys, he's just an extremely hard worker. He just overdid it a little bit. ... I assume he'll be fine."
