Pryor not at practice; Porter returns

By Steve Corkran
Wednesday, September 25th, 2013 at 11:54 am in Oakland Raiders.

Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is not at practice today, though cornerback Tracy Porter is back on the field less than 48 hours after he and Pryor suffered concussions.
Matt Flynn is taking the reps with the first-team offense today, and he is in line to make his first start for the Raiders unless Pryor is cleared by team doctors before Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
For Porter to be back on the field, it means he passed the league-mandated test that allows players to be at practice, though without contact, or he passed the test that allows players to resume activities without restriction.
Either way, the fact Porter is on the field today and Pryor isn’t says that Pryor suffered a more severe concussion.

– Defensive end Jason Hunter is not at practice, either. He was not mentioned by coach Dennis Allen as being injured during the Denver Broncos game Monday night.
Hunter is on the practice field, but he isn’t taking part in drills.

– Linebacker Sio Moore is at practice. He didn’t play against the Broncos as a result of a concussion he suffered in a car accident the day the Raiders flew to Denver.

– Andre Gurode is working at left guard, even though Lucas Nix is healthy enough to practice.
Nix started the first two games before he suffered an ankle injury. Gurode started against the Broncos.

    I hope Flynn starts. We might as well see what he has.

  • lefty12

    Doesn’t look like there is any other option.Hope the line is up to the task.

  • DJ Johnny

    Ok. Dr. Robert. We’d better “win with Flynn”.
    It’s all on you. The pressure’s on.

    And apparently he’d run it again. Cue Tom Cable.

  • Try Some Reality

    All these concussions. Not good.

    Well lets see what Mr. Flynn can do….

    I told you guys Nix sucked, and Bergs ain’t much better

    The blog seems much slower comment wise.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Should have drafted Warmack seems to be doing well in Tenn.

  • the notorious dr robert

    No excuses. Worst defense in football. At home. I expect 300 passing yards and 3 td passes.

  • the notorious dr robert

    Remember when we went Pittsburgh and Gannon threw it almost every play? That’s what we need.

  • RediaR

    No he’s not.

    Thanks to Josh Freeman and Mark Sanchez, Matt Flynn ($6.5 million) isn’t the league’s most expensive backup QB. #Raiders

    –> @MikeJonesWaPo: Redskins players expect Pryor to play. If not, they don’t think Raiders offense will change much, just less run wrinkles

    This new site is to blogging as FLYNN is to quarterbacking.

  • the notorious dr robert

    New. Better. Awesome. Yes.

  • turf toe

    Why would a coach send in a suicidal play when the game was over? Denver teed up TP as if he were a golf ball; one linebacker held him, another used his helmet as a club. Now we find out TP suffered amnesia from the blow. Despicable.

    When Shanahan kept a hobbling RGlll in the game, that was bad enough. But sending TP through the tackles at the goal line? There was nothing at stake but a coach’s ego. I don’t care our QB was Flynn, TP, or even Jamarcus Russell. This call was not only stupid, it was borderline criminal.

  • Try Some Reality

    It was a dumb play call. No doubt about it. Agree.

  • lefty12

    Pryor made the read and ran into the blitzer-as much his fault as the play call.

  • turf toe

    Flynn just reserved a room at the Mayo clinic.

  • Theghostronin79

    Uh DUUURR……..Thanks Rock

  • Try Some Reality

    LB that hit him stepped up after he saw Pryor take off. It’s a bad call. I don’t want to see it. He’s not a RB.

  • the notorious dr robert

    ummmmm, mayyyooooo……

  • Klaus Vlasov

    Play it safe and have him sit. He has shown the promise many here had hoped for and a win would be nice but not worth longer term issues.

  • turf toe

    He was grabbed by one linebacker and smashed by another in a compacted field. Nowhere to escape. Terrible play call.

  • Jay Wiggle

    Lefty,

    We disagree on Olson. He needs to open up the playbook.

  • alex7

    He leads our team in rushing. Can’t just run outside the tackles every time, especially when you’re close to the end zone. If he’d been tackled going sideways for a 5 yard loss, they’d blame the OC for that as well.

    He’s a running QB. He’s going to take some shots.

  • lefty12

    One of the main reasons most wanted Pryor over the other QBs was his running ability.Now he runs,gets injured and people are complaining.Also,everyone complained when he dropped back and took a sack instead of running vs INDY.Can’t have it both ways.

  • the notorious dr robert

    Support ur Raiders qb haters.

  • Jay Wiggle

    Please scrap all designed runs going forward!

  • Jay Wiggle

    LOL @ your pic, Doc.

    HUH LARRY US

    The Pryor Brigade’s new motto

  • the notorious dr robert

    what

  • Try Some Reality

    Don’t get it all twisted. His escapability and speed makes him intriguing. Hence my nickname for him, Houdini. I never wanted him to double as our RB. You guys try to oversimplify things to suit your argument and player preference.

  • alex7

    All Pryor runs must be sideways.
    Also, based on reaction vs Colts, Pryor may not pass the ball inside the 10-yard line.
    Place bib on.

    Ready? Go.

  • Jay Wiggle

    test

  • Jay Wiggle

    test.

  • alex7

    Have you noticed how often Pryor has to call a TO because he’s not understanding the play-call?

    Not to be mean, but he reportedly scored a 7 on the wonderlic. Maybe an entire playbook is a little too much.

  • Jay Wiggle

    test..
