Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsAfter the Oakland Raiders' tough loss on Sunday, it was revealed that their QB Terrelle Pryor is injured. He left the game two weeks ago with an injury, but all week long Pryor insisted that he was fine.

However, it was clear that wasn’t the case once he started playing. Pryor’s mobility side-to-side was questionable, and he didn’t even try to run a few times when he normally would have. After the game, Pryor conceded that he is in fact hurting:

#Raiders Terrelle Pryor said he has sprained MCL in knee & is "very sore. ... Just need rest a little, try to get back as fast as possible."

With Matt Flynn gone, the Raiders have McGloin to back up Pryor.

It’s not clear how long Pryor will need to rest, but with the Raiders sitting at 3-6, it might make sense to give Pryor a week to regain strength in his knee. They’ll have a tough time winning without him, but if he plays like he did on Sunday, they’ll still have a tough time in general.
