Oakland Raiders injury updates on Terrelle Pryor & Darren McFadden


 

The Oakland Raiders offense was non-existent last week after Terrelle Pryor was ruled-out with a concussion and running back Darren McFadden suffered a hamstring injury that kept him sidelined for most of the loss to the Washington Redskins.

Backup quarterback Matt Flynn couldn’t sustain any offensive drives, and the Raiders dropped a 24-14 contest, but it at least looks as though the Raiders will at least be getting Pryor back this week.

With McFadden likely out of Sunday night’s game against the San Diego Chargers, backup Rashad Jennings will likely take the role of lead runner:

“When opportunity presents itself, it’s too late to prepare for it,” Jennings said.

He knows he has to step-up his game this week vs the Chargers:

“I didn’t do enough. We didn’t get the win,” Jennings said. “I stay critical of myself. We were critical of everybody on the offensive side of the ball, trying to nitpick the things we could do to make sure we get out of the games with (wins).”
