Raiders still plan on playing Terrelle Pryor

The Oakland Raiders have been playing Matt McGloin at quarterback recently and he has played well. Some think that McGloin has played so well that he has stake his claim to be the Raiders’ starter going forward.

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen isn’t ready to hand the reins over to McGloin just yet. Allen said he still wants to give Pryor another opportunity to play in some capacity to see what he is capable of.

“I think we want to try to see more of (Pryor) at some point,” Allen said Friday, via CSN Bay Area. “Injuries are a tough thing. They’re hard to account for. You don’t know how things are going to respond and how quickly people are going to get back.

“With the short week, and again, only having 20 plays in the second half, we weren’t able to get him involved in the offense. But I think that’s something we want to look at moving forward, but we’ll see how that plays out.”

McGloin has completed 56.9 percent of his passes for 799 yards and four touchdowns with two interceptions. That gives him a passer rating of 84.6. Pryor on the other hand has completed 58.9 percent of his passes for 1,559 yards (in considerably more playing time) with five touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Pryor also has a passer rating of 69.
