Charges filed in stabbing of Terrelle Pryor, who is expected to make full recovery

PITTSBURGH -- A woman was charged with attempted homicide in a Pittsburgh stabbing that critically injured former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who is also facing a charge, police said.

Pryor was taken to the hospital just after 4:30 a.m. Saturday following a dispute with "mutual combatants'' in an apartment on the city's North Side, police said.

A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Pryor was stabbed in the chest and shoulder and underwent surgery. The stabbing occurred at Pryor's apartment, the source said.

Allegheny County prosecutors and police said 24-year-old Shalaya Briston of Munhall was charged with attempted homicide and aggravated assault, while Pryor, 30, faces a charge of simple assault.
