Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor got injured during a scramble in the fourth quarter of the team’s blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, which paved the way for undrafted free agent Matt McGloin to step in under center.
Pryor suffered a knee injury during the play, but it looks like all signs are positive and the young signal-caller should not miss much time.
Raiders head coach Dennis Allen was noncommittal about Pryor’s status for this week, but when the former Ohio State Buckeyes standout spoke out he seemed far more optimistic.
“I have to look at it tomorrow, but it’s stable,” Pryor said, via Jerry McDonald of the Bay Area News Group. “Nothing’s wobbly or anything like that. It was just precaution. Nine minutes left in the game. We were losing.”
The team and fan base has to love hearing that, but we cannot be certain that Pryor is giving an honest evaluation of his injured knee.
There is no player in the league that will openly admit they are injured or the extent of the injury, so take Pryor’s comments with a grain of salt.
The good news, however, is that no one believes this is a serious injury.
