Pryor on field, but not doing much


Terrelle Pryor was on the field with his teammates but doing very little Thursday during the media window at Raiders practice.

Pryor, who was not wearing a helmet, went through warm-ups but then stood and watched as Matt Flynn and Matt McGloin took reps with receivers and running backs.

Only one time did Pryor take a snap and throw to a receiver.

Pryor said Wednesday he believed he could be ready to play if he could practice Friday.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen did not want to speculate Wednesday how much work Pryor would need to be ready to play and there’s a chance he won’t divulge the name of his starter until game time.

Also not practicing for the Raiders was defensive end Jason Hunter (quadriceps), along with safety Tyvon Branch (ankle) and Menelik Watson (knee).

Allen will be available to the media following practice, as well as coordinators Greg Olson and Jason Tarver.

    No numbers. Load more comments overandover. At least the comments are nested. Ennyways… I saw a comment somewhere that best man wins. We see what Pryor brings to the table. – Flynn didn’t look amazingly horrible while he was in, maybe he can bring at least a solid backup performance for us against the Skins… who knows, if he does well we might see more of him. It happens. #RAIDERS

    The Flynnsanity starts Sunday.

  • RealTruRaider

    Just trolled Corks 49er chat, he let me get a shot in

  • I think I am going to take the under tonight (43)

  • Lowdown_in_Beijing

    Raiden wins!

  • Beeeeeeech Diggity

    Turn up the Dexy’s Midnight Runners!

  • Avion Davis

    Man I was looking forward to seeing Pryor rip that WAS Defense a new one. I hope he can start. Whenever he has the ball in his hands I get excited cause I know we can score in a flash.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Even if Frisco snaps out of it, against the lambs probably a safe bet.
    Division games always a crapshoot though.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    hasn’t happened very much so that theory is incorrect.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    yes. yes it does.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    don’t see any mangy dawgs around so it looks like he got sent to the pound again.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    that looks like a setup bet. it’s begging u to take the under. all the suckers will and what will happen? BOOM! offensive explosion.

  • Teresa

    Sunday = Raiders 23-21

  • Guest

    where’s this guy been?

  • the nefarious dr robert

    with Flynn, Raiders win 31-27.

    with Pryor, it’s wash 34-13.

  • c2e

    How amazing does Flynn have to be in order to be in conversation long term?

  • JLofty

    I’d settle for fairly competent. But long term seems like a stretch. That guy just SCREAMS mediocre NFL backup….

  • RealTruRaider

    Lets just say that the Redskins are giving up near 500 yards a game, so he should be able to move the sticks atleast, not sure 1 good game against a horrible defense will get him a chance long term.

  • GhostToThePost

    Game is handmade for a slow qb like Flynn. WA has the worst defense.

  • RealTruRaider

    With Flynn Raiders win 27-24

    With Pryor Raiders win 34-17

  • RaidO

    Yup Redskins have the worst defense in the NFL ranked overall #32

    #31 in passing D
    #30 in run D

  • tuckrulefool

    HORRIBLE D…if flynn fails in this softball matchup he must voluntarily refund his salary and go find another line of work….


    dr Z3R0 must follow suit and leave the blog, STAT.

  • 2romes

    The Dr.Roberts states he would say if Pryor played well if he did so. Well, commentators that are well known for not saying a kind word about the Raiders gave Pryor full credit for his well played game. If I heard high marks given to Pryor for his passing from nemesis of the Raiders before The Dr. Robert, Dr.Robert would be the last person I would want to get a true evaluation of Pryor from.

  • R8derdiehard

    Tuckrulefool have you seen dr slobs posts hes Jesus Christ reborn flynns our savior

  • the nefarious dr robert

    so flynn has to do what u don’t expect of pryor or else he sucks and i should leave? gtfoh.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    more like Moses. parting the red sea and whatnot.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    nonsense. people are just surprised he isn’t so awful, it’s embarrassing. thery’re just selling us the nfl.

  • R8derdiehard

    I want Flynn to do good but i think he’s probably as good as gradokowski was I do not believe he has any potential to be anything special. Can he win games sure i think so but does he have the it factor, something special to over to put us over the edge, I say no in my opinion

  • the nefarious dr robert

    he will lead us.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    grads numbers aren’t close to flynn’s.

    flynn is a laser accurate passer.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    Pryor’s 3-game averages:

    208 yards/.67 tds

    that’s all Flynn has to do to be better. LOL..

  • tuckrulefool

    “dr” z3r0 is a total tr0ll…

    Honestly i dont even think he LIKES flynn. hes just a racist who loves getting people riled up. his avatar is a black dr. really? this dude is a white guy from KC (not that theres anything wrong with that. lol)

    hes just a hateful attention seeking clown…nothing to see here just move along….esp sicne he FEEDS off the negative attention

  • the nefarious dr robert

    #27 in passing yards and #29 in passing tds.

    yeah, pretty sure flynn can do better.

  • 10centsworth

    I look to the rest of his teammates for that answer. I think THAT is what he has to overcome, and what Pryor has shown. Pryor energizes this team. The rest is conjecture, which of course you are free to do.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Either way.. CODE MOTHERFVCKIN BLACK!!!!
    Worst D in the league.. Guys healing up.. OUR HOUSE!!

  • the nefarious dr robert

    go to the corner u dunce.

  • R8derdiehard

    Maybe against the redskins but he won’t carry this team anywhere i don’t think. And he won’t have an opertunity

  • RealTruRaider

    Go take a cold shower doc

  • the nefarious dr robert

    after sunday, if he puts up 300 and 3, and gets the big win, it’s all flynn going forward.

  • 10centsworth

    That on ANY date, you would take/choose/pick the worst defense in football against the Raiders no doubt shows your colors. and that isn’t Silver and Black. Down vote this guy and get him off of here. I don’t care if the waterboy is drafted to start.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Your post would qualify, tuck.

  • the nefarious dr robert

    i’m not a kid. it’s not abut “picking the redskins”, it’s about waht i think would happen.

  • Raiders for Life

    This could get interesting. If Flynn starts and Pryor is inactive…then McGloin will be the #2. Might see McGloin play Sunday if Flynn gets clobbered.

  • 10centsworth

    He’s Indian and that swastica has different connotations to them. My guess.

  • Taiwan_Raiders

    I like to see what McGloin can do.

  • 10centsworth

    Fair enough.

  • R8derdiehard

    If Flynn throws any ball over 25 yes though his elbow might snap. Poor guy gonna lose out on another starting position!

  • R8derdiehard

    Real talk!!

  • 10centsworth

    Duh. You picked the Redskins, 34-13, rather proudly. Kinda like your ego has gripped you by the throat.

  • 10centsworth

    Why not. He’s wearing the colors.
