The NFL declared former Ohio State QB Terrelle Pryor is eligible for the supplemental draft Thursday. However the quarterback will be facing ban for first five games of the 2011 regular season after he signs a contract.

The league announced that Pryor was eligible in a memo sent to its 32 teams on Thursday. The 2011 supplemental draft, originally scheduled for Aug. 17 and was postponed which is rescheduled to take place Aug. 22.

The NFL said that Pryor can play in preseason games after he is drafted and signs, but he is not eligible to practice with his new team or play in a game until Week 6 of the regular season. Pryor will be allowed at his new team’s training facility for meetings and to work with coaches during this time.

The league said that, Pryor made decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL draft. Those actions included failing to cooperate with the NCAA and hiring an agent in violation of NCAA rules, which resulted in Ohio State declaring him ineligible to continue playing college football.

Pryor then applied to enter the NFL after the regular draft. Pryor had accepted at the end of the 2010 college football season a suspension for the first five games of the 2011 season for violating NCAA rules. Pryor will be disqualified to practice prior to or play in the first five games of the NFL regular season after he signs a contract with any team.
