Alright I’ll admit it, last night’s game between the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos wasn’t necessarily the massacre I thought it was going to be.

Oakland actually showed signs of a decent offense against (in my opinion) the best team in the league. But their defense took a hard hit as corner-back Tracy Porter (according to CSN Bay Area)suffered a concussion during last night’s game after taking a knee to the helmet.

Porter wasn’t the only Raiders player who left the game with a concussion. Starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor also left after failing to get into the end zone when they were inside the five yard line near the end of the game.

Both players will go through the league’s concussion protocol just like every other player who has suffered concussions and won’t be cleared until their symptoms are completely gone.

So with Porter and Pryor being questionable for Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, the rest of the team is going to have to step up. D.J. Hayden and Phillip Adams are going to hold down the outside positions with Jenkins covering the slot.

Matt Flynn will most likely get the start for Oakland after he helped the team get into the end zone with a short drive after Monte Ball fumbled.
