Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been ruled out of Sunday’s game versus the Houston Texans with knee injury that he’s been dealing with for the past month and has caused his play to drop-off significantly. His hot start to the year had many wondering if the Raiders had finally found their franchise QB, but the last month has brought more questions than answers regarding Oakland’s plans at the most important position in football.
Raiders Head Coach Dennis Allen acknowledged that Pryor encountered a setback on Friday after sharing reps with rookie Matt McGloin in Thursday’s practice. Pryor has completed 132 passes for 224 yards for 1,559 yards with five touchdowns and 10 interceptions. But he leads the team in rushing with 68 carries for 504 yards and two touchdowns. He’s kept the Raiders respectable to say the least.
Although Allen was still is holding out hope, he now appears ready to hand the starting job to McGloin, who will be making his first NFL start.
