McGloin, Pryor both at practice today

Share

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.

    It totally makes sense now. Probably felt it go or was told by a doctor or what have you.

  • 10centsworth

    Picture being a lineman, dealing with each of our QBs. With one, BAM…two, three seconds, done. Next play.
    The other? Well picture it.

    That’s OK. It’s a good pun.

    @JoshDubowAP: Rashad Jennings 3.2 ypc after contact is highest in NFL of any back with 20+ carries. McFadden is at 1.9 #Raiders

    Yeah cuz it was the OL.

    Why don’t some of u guys listen?

  • 10centsworth

    Should I have said Aunts?

  • willy91137

    Not get ahead of ourselves let’s see how he does this weekend and will go from there

  • 10centsworth

    Answered a question, dude. Ok with you?

  • Rico Stifler

    Only thing that sucks is that the guard position is looking weak in FA. Only one guard I’d sign and that is Asamoah from the Chiefs. But if we can land center Alex Mack, we can move Wiz back to LG.

  • the legendary dr robert

    If u watched closely (as I did), replaying every play, nix played ok.

  • 10centsworth

    You’re too smart to have gone to USC, despite the hype. Why the love feast?

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Last week, acceptable. Buster list virtually every other start.

  • jtdxyz

    Doesn’t matter, McFadden done…can’t stay healthy…need players that can suit up and play

  • 10centsworth

    Don’t you mean crutches?

  • Rico Stifler

    I think I know why Ford hasn’t been cut yet…. He is a FA after the season anyways.

  • the legendary dr robert

    He’s not a starter at this point. But he is getting better and will make a decent backup.

    Barnes will likely slide over there soon.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    He has some value as a return guy. Can’t imagine bringing him back next year, though.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    True, we might get a compensatory pick out of him, if he signs with another team.

  • Rico Stifler

    No way would we bring him back. Might expand on TJ’s ST duties instead.

  • Rico Stifler

    Maybe a 7th round comp pick. lol.

    But a pick nonetheless….

  • the legendary dr robert

    Scraps McG!

  • RediaR

    I’m not sure he even has much value as a returner at this point.

  • Looks like Matt-A-Dor is starting….

  • Chino

    He’s a keeper.

  • the legendary dr robert

    He was beating bergs out. Not sure bergs ever does a thing.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Gurode, beat him out midseason, then was injured. I also think they know they need him more as a backup center, than as a LG, Brisiel has been solid at RG, I’m sure you remember though how he was at center.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    No love for the ‘University of Second Choice'(Alt. Spoiled Children). Just think Palmer is a very good QB that (bad)lucked into some bad situations.
    Didn’t ‘quit’ on Brown. Brown quit on him. Thought he gave his all here, and don’t believe he left under adversarial conditions. Think it was way more mutual between he and Reggie.

  • SnBG

    MM

  • Chino

    Need a change of pace back tho. Must be tough on his knees the way he runs

  • RediaR

    Murray and/or a draft pick

  • Chino

    Criner is back too. Looked good last game he played

  • Rico Stifler

    Branch is our biggest cap hit next year at 7.1. Then we have a few 3M and 2M cap hit then the rest are under 2M…. Interesting to see how RM spends the money considering he has to spend at least 89-90% of the cap space…

  • 10centsworth

    Don’t argue with that. I just failed to see any modicum of leadership. I think a BIG part of his check was to provide that.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Pork McgLoin, a cut above.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Booker T

  • R8erEduc8er

    we’ll even match your cherished 8-8 Hue Jackson years, and this time with a team with a much, much bigger potential upside.

    ==================
    Glad someone said it!

    The forgotten receiver. Criner needs to step up and play his game vs Tennessee.

    Didn’t Julianne Moore already have the nickname? Oh wait, i think that was Redbush…..

  • Rico Stifler

    was it the Giants game that he turned the ball over several times?

  • Goldie7

    Let’s go Raaaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiiddddddddeeeeeeerrrrrrs!

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    McGloin, “I’ll take my 30% cap raise now, if you please. “

  • 10centsworth

    The “white” meat. that what you’re saying? OH BOY.

  • Sir Raider Duck, OMS

    Relax. McGloin was signed to the standard three-year UDFA deal.

  • SnBG

    It will be.

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    Tennessee one big edge over the Raiders is 3rd down conversions, they are one of the leagues best. Raiders defense needs to get them into three and outs quickly at the beginning of the game.
