Pryor at practice, McFadden sidelined

The Raiders injury situation is a mixed bag in terms of who was able to practice Wednesday. Most important for the Raiders, quarterback Terrelle Pyror is on the field and showing no lingering effects from the right knee injury he suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
Running back Darren McFadden, wide receiver Juron Criner, offensive tackle Matt McCants and linebacker Kaluka Maiava are hurt badly enough to where they aren’t cleared to practice.
McFadden isn’t even on the field watching, whereas Criner, McCants and Maiava are present. Criner’s right shoulder is in a sling as a result of the injury he received in the Eagles game.
On the bright side, wide receiver Rod Streater and kicker Sebastian Janikowski are at practice and doing everything asked of them, at least in the early portion of practice, which bodes well for their playing Sunday against the New York Giants.
Also, receiver Andre Holmes is back on the field and healed enough to give his injured hamstring injury a test drive. He tweaked his hamstring in practice last week and wasn’t able to play against the Eagles.
Finally, backup offensive lineman Andre Gurode is on the practice field after missing significant time since he injured a quadriceps last month.

– Right offensive tackle Tony Pashos still hasn’t been cleared to practice. Therefore, it appears as if rookie Menelik Watson is in line to make his first NFL start Sunday, given Pashos and backup McCants aren’t even healthy enough to practice yet.
Watson replaced McCants early in the Eagles game and fared well in his first action in a regular-season game. He missed most of training camp with a calf injury and most of the first half of the regular season with knee and calf injuries.

– The Raiders worked out defensive ends Chris McCoy and Jermaine Cunningham and defensive tackles Frank Kearse and Will Tukuafu on Tuesday.
Cunningham and Tukuafu spent time with the 49ers this season. None of the four was signed by the Raiders. The fact they worked out all defensive linemen shows that there’s concern about the lack of pressure and depth at both positions.

    OK, so the reason Pryor is soooo inaccurate is because of the WR’s. Got it. And the reason Pryor is only a running QB is because of the offensive line. Got it. Any other lame excuses?

  • RaidingTexas

    One really bad game and the Karson Klux Klan is back at it.

  • The_Judge37

    I got a good one, it’s the most popular one on this site:
    You have to understand what kind of situation Pryor had to deal with comming in to this season. With the way Al Davis left the salary cap, and all the Coaching turnover,He hasn’t had any continuity. If we bench him now, no way any legit QB’s will ever want to come here and play. Until he’s had at least 3-4 years, there’s no way we can judge him properly soley on the results he’s produced so far.

    DMac sidelined.
    Dog bites man.

  • kenchun24

    Heh heh yeah…but who cares, Carson sucked ever since his knee was taken out in that home playoff loss vs. Pitt long ago. He’s simply a stopgap QB for Arizona as their defense is the rock of that team.

    Most likely OL (Cards o-line is probably worse than the Raiders) and QB are the #1 2 3 round options for Zona’s upcoming draft.

  • eseterik78

    Can they just cut McFadden now?
    I don’t see any reason to keep him around. He’ll come back in four to five weeks, play a half maybe less and something else will come up.

    It was real good for a minute, but time is up.

  • DutchRaid

    Dammit, we need Carson to start 13 games or no 7th round pick!

  • kenchun24

    Having a near entire team of fringe and/or back up players on most NFL rosters as starters on Oakland isn’t an excuse IMO. The Raids need talent improvement EVERYWHERE. Got it.

    Ryan tannahill knew some of this stuff at let it go on. Check out Tp2 press conference today.. he said he has stopped certain issues before they got out of hand and its part of being a leader on a football team. Or when a guy should call a cab.. he has told guys he would call it for them.

    You saw the leadership he showed when he rag dolled Mike Goodson a 4 year vet. 1st game starting Tp2 and he just ragged dolled mIke for being dumb on that penalty

  • RaidingTexas

    Mostly true. The Reggime has been “backfilling” the roster with rotation and backup guys. Some of them have turned into pleasant surprises, though. But yes, need some serious playmakers on both sides of the ball.

  • RaidingTexas

    That’s when I realized how strong he was. Dude yanked him so hard, surprised MG didn’t get whiplash. Lol

  • eseterik78

    His fire or leadership has never been the issue. He’s been accountable, said the right things and worked hard.
    But he’s got to get the team in the endzone. So far he’s come up short mstly.

  • seymour bush

    One really bad game? Pryor has had one good half. The lst half against SD. Other than that he has been flat out awful. And getting worse.

    @JoshDubowAP: Sio Moore was only #Raiders player to make the @PFF AFC West midseason all-division team

    Like is said. Hard to be a top defense without top defenders.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Love him or hate him(I’m in the lonely camp) his history shows him to a durable guy. And anybody disagreeing go to Pro Football Reference first, so I don’t have to.

  • seymour bush

    I said I was not going to bash Pryor during the week, and I am not. It is not Pryor’s fault we got our azzes kicked this last game. But Chip Kelly just sent the league a fool proof plan on how to beat the Raiders: get up on them, and there is NO WAY Terrelle Pryor has the ability to come back on anyone.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Fine. Give him 4 years. Where’s Fred? You remember Fred. Ten and then?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    As long as you’re not bashing Pryor.

  • Try Some Reality

    LOL!

    No, not bashing Pryor at all. You can’t help yourself, can you?

  • the angry dr robert

    Sounds like Martin is building a lawsuit.

  • seymour bush

    Pryor is BY FAR the lowest rated Q in the league and getting worse. The difference between you and I is you somehow think he is going to develop. I know better.

  • The_Judge37

    Yup, Chip Kelly is a Genius. Easy way to shut down Pryor and the Raiders is have your offense score more than them. I just hope this doesn’t catch on too quickly.

  • the angry dr robert

    True qb skills

  • rifflicks

    Kelly got it from Denver.

  • Try Some Reality

    After Chip Kelly’s offense ripped our defense to shreds and made a mockery of it, I’m glad you had the sense to*not bash* Pryor this week.

  • Nick Gancayco

    Isn’t he like 61% completion percentage? He has a better completion % than andrew luck and he has a higher yards per attempt avg.

  • kuhlest

    Kelvin Benjeman/Florida state-6’5″ 235lbs….looks fast

  • seymour bush

    When you are going three and out, three and out, three and out, it’s not that hard to fall behind anyone.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Whoa! We had a Palmer debate a couple hours ago and I wasn’t here? Good thing. I would’ve changed everybody’s mind I’m sure.

  • Gdog

    Does the QB rating even factor in QB rushing? Its one of the most meaningless ratings ever invented anyway, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it doesn’t…

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Martin the Martian?

    “I said I was not going to bash Pryor during the week, and I am not.”

    I for one am sure glad you’re taking the week off from bashing Pryor, Seymour.

    ——————–

    Seymour Bush says:

    “there is NO WAY Terrelle Pryor has the ability to come back on anyone.”

    “OK, so the reason Pryor is soooo inaccurate is because of the WR’s. Got it. And the reason Pryor is only a running QB is because of the offensive line. Got it. Any other lame excuses?”

    “One really bad game? Pryor has had one good half. The lst half against SD. Other than that he has been flat out awful. And getting worse.”

  • seymour bush

    Well, I guess I could start up…..

  • Jim Jesus

    LMAO Bush! As much as I am pulling for Pryor I too think he has been fairly bad this year. I will grant he is exciting and has made a few good plays but he is too inconsistent IMO.

  • Gdog

    He should get one more year… and I agree with Cork, we should draft a QB in the first round just in case he doesn’t improve.

    I would like to see him with a real OC, a healthy line, and better WRs before I discard him as trash like Seymour is doing here.

  • RaidingTexas

    A QB has to be a leader.

  • seymour bush

    The problem with all of this is the Defense has played poorly really only last game. With the exception of the lst half against SD, Pryor has played relatively poorly every time out. So, to start bashing the defense and the coaches is a bit disingenuous. Lack of Pass rush came back to bite us in this last game. Allen and Tarver had done a good job of scheming that problem away, but alas, you could only use smoke and mirrors for so long.

  • Gdog

    He’s had a great first half vs SD and Pitts. A great second half vs Denver, and below average the rest of the time.

    I still am not ready to discard him as trash though… the “excuses” are legitimate.
    Our line sucks, our WRs suck, and we might have one of the worst OC’s in the entire NFL.
    You can’t discount that just because you don’t like Pryor.

  • rifflicks

    so how many games , and seasons does Pryor get to suck before you and the other slow learners realize it ain’t going to work???????????????

  • the angry dr robert

    Without passing skills, it’s meaningless.

  • KoolKell

    I guess your boy Flynch had nothing to offer.

  • Gdog

    Damn you have sheet for brains (irony.)

    “”The report of a seven test score is erroneous,” Colbert said. “I
    administered both tests and I can tell you that his score was
    significantly higher than that.

  • Gdog

    It depends entirely on how he does the rest of this year, and how he does next pre-season in comparison to the QB’s that Reggie brings in.

    Right now he is still twenty times better than McGloin, so the question is meaningless.

    Does this help, Einstein?

  • Breaking_Black

    Pryor will probably be lose his job just like Flynn and Palmer and Campbell and Gradkowski and Jamarcus and so on and so forth..

    People on here will say “see I won the argument” while others will say “but I won the argument about Flynn” but we will all be losers rooting on a team that has been looking for a QB for a decade.

  • Chino

    Ponder Palmer Geno and Eli all have worse ratings.
