The text on his social media video reads: 'Thanks for all the support!! Ima be aite! Had to be Coded twice.'

'Coded' is a hospital term that can refer to resuscitating a patient.

'Seeya Mina,' Pryor can be heard saying to one nurse. 'Patty, bye. Come visit me. Come visit me upstairs. Thank y'all, man.'

Pryor, who may have been the instigator in the altercation that resulted in his stabbing, appeared to be in the process of being moved to a different part of the hospital. He faces a charge of simple assault following the dispute. 

Shalaya Briston, 24, was accused of stabbing Pryor during the physical altercation on Saturday.

Briston has been charged with attempted homicide as Pryor is expected to make a full recovery. Both were also charged with assault, and according to one female eye witness, it was the 30-year-old Pryor who was the aggressor.

Briston's nose does appear to be slightly bruised in the mugshot, which supports bystander testimony that it was Pryor who instigated the physical skirmish.

She has reportedly been denied bail.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, a female witness claimed Pryor started the fight after waiting for Briston to return home after clubbing with friends.

The witness claims Pryor and Briston 'tussled' in their kitchen, where she allegedly grabbed an object and stabbed the 6-foot-4, 220-pound former Buckeyes star.

TMZ previously reported that Briston and Pryor have been a couple for about a year, although the relationship has been described as 'volatile.'

A witness told TMZ that Pryor is 'always putting his hands on Ms. Briston.'

Police officers were called to UPMC Mercy after a stabbing victim walked into the hospital just after 4:30 a.m. Saturday, according to a Pittsburgh Public Safety spokeswoman, who wouldn't confirm that the victim was Pryor.

Allegheny County District Attorney spokesman Mike Manko confirmed Saturday that Pryor, 30, was the victim of a stabbing.

Pryor was arrested and faces a charge of simple assault following a dispute in his apartment on Heinz Street.

Briston allegedly suffered injuries during the dispute and is now being charged with criminal attempt homicide and aggravated assault.

Family members are with Pryor at the hospital, according to Gregory Diulus of Vantage Management Group, which represents Pryor. They have been told he's expected to make a full recovery. Diulus said he expects to see Pryor on Sunday.

Pryor has spent time with nine NFL teams including the Buffalo Bills, New York Jets, Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns. He most recently signed with Jacksonville but was waived in September after a hamstring injury.

While his professional career has been that of a journeyman, Pryor was a national star quarterback in high school and college. And his time at Ohio State ended in scandal.

Pryor grew up in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, and was considered one of the top high school football and basketball players in the country when he signed with Ohio State in 2008.

His recruitment drew national attention because he took the unusual step of waiting until mid-March to make his final decision. Most prospects sign in early February.

At Ohio State, Pryor started as a freshman and was the Rose Bowl MVP after the 2009 season as a sophomore.

Late in the 2010 season, Pryor and some of his Ohio State teammates were found to have broken NCAA rules by trading their equipment, memorabilia and autographs for tattoos at a shop in the Columbus area.

That NCAA investigation led to the revelation that Ohio State coach Jim Tressel had lied to investigators seeking information on Pryor and his teammates. Tressel, who had won a national championship at Ohio State, was forced to resign on Labor Day weekend 2011.

With allegations of more possible violations mounting and the possibility of a being ruled ineligible, Pryor decided to skip his senior season and leave Ohio State in June 2011. He was selected in the NFL´s supplemental draft later that month by the Oakland Raiders.

Pryor was never punished in college for the NCAA violations.
