Terrelle Pryor to remain Oakland Raiders starter

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor finished Week One of the regular season with a league-leading 112 rushing yards, but his performance throughout the air during the team’s loss to the Indianapolis Colts left plenty to be desired.

Despite the team’s loss and Pryor’s inaccuracy, the team has no plans to replace him under center and they will continue rolling with him as the starting signal-caller for Week 2 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

From Steve Corkran of the Contra Costa Times/Bay Area News Group:

With the opponent for next weekend being the Jaguars, it is a perfect opportunity for Pryor to excel.

After all, the Jaguars may have the worst roster in the league and if the Raiders are unable to get the offense going then there could be cause for concern and a change at quarterback in the future. We don’t expect that to be the case.
