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:
With Matt Flynn gone, the Raiders have McGloin to back up Pryor.
#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."— Vic Tafur (@VicTafur) November 10, 2013
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.
