Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is still struggling with a knee injury that was much worse than the team had initially known. Pryor has a sprained MCL in his right knee, which has severely limited him and delivered a hit to his production, and the team has yet to announce whether or not Pryor will be suiting up to start against the Houston Texans this weekend.
Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said the team is going to continue to monitor the situation for the next few days leading up to kickoff.
“We’ll monitor Terrelle as he goes through the week and see how he’s feeling as the week goes on,” Allen said, via the Oakland Tribune.
Pryor added, “It’s up to the training staff and (Allen). However he feels about the situation, that’s on him.
“I think I still bring excitement. I think I make people’s eyes go wide on plays. I’m not too worried about a loss of confidence at all. It’s just a learned lesson, and you try to put your head down and keep digging.”
If Pryor cannot go, the team will turn to undrafted rookie Matt McGloin to lead the offense.
