3:17 PM PT — Pryor just posted a full-body shot showing the area affected by the stabbing … and you can see the guy required some serious work to close the wounds.

Terrelle Pryor was just wheeled out of the Intensive Care Unit — SMILING — with a bandage over the wound where he was stabbed in his chest … and it's all on video.

"Thanks for all the support," the NFL player said on his way out of ICU … "I'mma be aite."

Pryor notes that he "had to be coded twice" — which is usually hospital slang for an emergency effort to resuscitate someone having a life-threatening medical episode.
