McGloin, Pryor both at practice today

Matt McGloin and Terrelle Pryor are on the practice field today, though McGloin is the one taking first-team reps in the early portion of the proceedings.
Coach Dennis Allen said Monday that he wanted to speak with Pryor about his injured right knee to get a better feel about Pryor’s health before he decided whether to go with McGloin or Pryor as his starting quarterback against the Tennessee Titans.
Pryor started eight of Oakland’s first nine games, with Matt Flynn replacing Pryor for one game after Pryor suffered a concussion. Flynn since has been released and McGloin has burst on to the scene as an intriguing prospect at an unsettled position.
Neither Pryor nor McGloin are slated to speak with the media in a formal setting today, which is the norm for the starting quarterback every Wednesday. Read into that what you will. One or both might be available in the locker room during the media-access window.

– In other news, running back Darren McFadden (hamstring), wide receiver Denarius Moore (shoulder) and defensive end Jason Hunter (foot) are not at practice today.
McFadden has missed most of the past three games. He was slated to test his hamstring Tuesday, Allen said. We won’t know more on how that went until Allen speaks with the media in about 90 minutes.
As for Moore, he suffered his injury against the Houston Texans on Sunday. Fellow receiver Andre Holmes also hurt a shoulder against the Texans. However, he is at practice today.
Hunter also got hurt against the Texans. His status is questionable as of now.

– Left offensive tackle Jared Veldheer is at practice once again. He is working at left tackle with the second-team offense in the early stages of practice.
It’s conceivable that Veldheer will be activated in time for Sunday’s game against the Titans. He currently is working his way back from a triceps injury that forced him to miss most of training camp and the first 10 games.

– Defensive tackle Daniel Muir (knee) and right guard Mike Brisiel (knee) are on the field, two days after they underwent MRI exams for their injuries.

    This is why I say wait 2 or 3 years to judge the draftees. Of course, they have to get on the field and play to be judged in 2 to 3 years.

    And yet we’ve still been pretty good despite the injuries…that says A LOT!!!

    Hyperbric Chamber to sleep in. Terrell Owens swore by it and Michael Jackson had one too but back in the late 80s/90s folks saw MJ do it and went “loco”.

    Rashad Jennings got one when he came to Oakland as a FA (he said in a The Game interview). Said it has helped immensely after an injury riddled 2012 season in Jax.

    Man I miss the dirt infield…NOT

    Well then if you’ve been reading for years, you should already know the answer to your question.

  • alex7

    Even the hot-starting DeAndre Hopkins, WR, was benched against us.

    Alec Ogletree, he of much baggage, has turned out to be one of the best 1st round picks at MLB.

    we don’t believe u.
    ‘reading for yrs’?
    and ur first comment is to try and explain why I’m a toady?
    me thinks thou art foolin noone

  • alex7

    boom, roasted.

    Any update to the new stadium proposal?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Right on, 24. I was about to respond, but I think I’ll wait for a response to you.

  • Goldie7

    Yes.

  • jtdxyz

    Hey, compared to the last decade or so of # 1 pics or trades of # 1 pics…the Hayden pic is an improvement

  • alex7

    McG can think so far ahead, he knew Reece had the dropsies that day! =)

  • Veldiman

    I saw that AND a few of the other long throws, like to Holmes and Streeter, you had others open as well. I think this offense is going to be impressive. Now if we can get the WRs to catch the rock….

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Peter Noone?

  • rifflicks

    McGloin doesn’t require coddling….here’s a QB smart enough to roll with the punches, adapt and take charge,,,,he has his whole playing career thru college

  • The_Judge37

    4-6 is not pretty good.

  • the gayblade dr robert

    has little to do with tp, if u must kno.
    it’s mostly because he’s racist.
    and a liar.
    and a massive crossposter.
    of course u wouldn’t kno anything about that, right sweetie?

  • alex7

    remember when the Pryor Brigade swore that no Raider WR was open…ever? :)

  • the gayblade dr robert

    I still miss him.
    with those big lips.

  • alex7

    Veld, Watson, Wiz, Briesel, Pashos would be a solid O-line. Too bad Watson won’t be asked to learn a 3rd position and we’ll likely still have Nix there.

    3 years is the norm. But Raiders were so thin after “The Purge” (still are, this season is smoke and mirrors) the first and second rounders needed to be impact guys – they weren’t, sorry Nation. Here’s to hoping next year is different for Hayden and Watson.

    au natural
    who’s up for it?

  • Veldiman

    Although TP has his strengths, I think a lot of if depends on what type of QB is playing. It seems that a more structured, one who is able to read defenses quickly and a strong arm makes up for “lack of talent” in other areas.

    It allows you to breath more oxygen-rich air like you would at higher elevations.

    Raiders name Matt McGloin starting quarterback vs. Tennessee Titans

  • Till death do us part

    Lol , however that is the truth, I don’t know how to be someone else on a blog and I’m not interested in trying to

    You may be right…I hope you’re right but based on his great story…I certainly believe you.

  • 24

    Thank you for the answers guys…sounds cool!

  • The_Judge37

    So what’s the word on Miles Burris?

  • 10centsworth

    Neither does the quack.

  • Goldie7

    Thanks.

  • 24

    Well, consider how bad we’ve been, it’s true that we are what are record is but I’m sure you would agree that we’ve seen other 4-6 teams and this one has been far more promising and competitive. With the exception of the Broncos and Eagles, we’ve lost some really close games. We’re a QB and a few players away from really being good imo.

  • aig-raiders

    wow. Thanks for posting.

  • Till death do us part

    Who’s that?

  • kenchun24

    I have no idea, the Raiders roster turns over faster than a busboy staff at a Chinese Buffet. Injuries,performance, IR’d, PUP blah blah blah.

  • 10centsworth

    What drug up that guy? Never liked but surprisingly, he had status in the Brit rock world.

  • lefty12

    He has been added to the roster.

  • alex7

    good read. Mark, the secret talent-eye.

  • The_Judge37

    They need to show me they can beat weak teams and put up a win streak before i shower them with praise. Remember after the Steelers win we were all looking the “Weak Schedule” with delusions of grandure. Then lost back to back games to Two win teams.

  • lefty12

    We have used 19 offensive lineman so far this year.And yesterday Rock complained Sparano wasn’t doing a good job with the line saying he wasn’t developing anyone.Amazing what some people come up with.

  • PlunkforHOF

    Uhhh. there is LESS O2 at higher elevations.

  • 24

    Those teams are thinking the same thing as well…it’s the NFL, it’s not easy for anyone…unless you’re the Broncos of course haha

  • PlunkforHOF

    I live in one.

  • aig-raiders

    My only knock is Nix keeps on playing.

  • Rico Stifler

    The air is thinner, but it has more oxygen. Sea level air only has 21% oxygen.
