Mandatory Credit: Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY SportsWhen Terrelle Pryor went down with an injury, he temporarily lost his starting spot to Matt McGloin, who started the season as the Oakland Raiders' third string quarterback. However, Coach Dennis Allen isn't ready to let McGloin completely take over yet.

Allen has said that Pryor will keep on playing, though it's not clear how long he'll play or in what capacity. The coach said:

"I think we want to try to see more of (Pryor) at some point. 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."

The encouraging part for McGloin is that he is still the starter for now, and Allen has said that he hasn't done anything to lose his starting spot. 

The main problem is that the Raiders have two young quarterbacks that have different strengths, and are each steadily improving.
