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.

    The Rivera TD was the most difficult of the three, imo.

  • 10centsworth

    That’s the usual formula for a #1 pick, injury or not.

  • seymour bush

    Certainly not easy. Very accurate tosses, and very very very good decisions.

  • RaiderGuy50

    exactly- he had to quickly read the d and decide to throw with anticipation to that spot on a rope.

  • 10centsworth

    For purposes of this blog…McG sure makes the “prognosticators” waffle, huh. “We need this…We need that”. I hate to sound like I’m stomping on 2’s grave, but NOW we can truly get some indication…across the board. Yep, that includes the D, as they will be playing a different game than they have been, in the 4th quarter.

  • Rico Stifler

    Some get injured very early on and never end up being the difference maker they were drafted to be. Perfect example is Ki-Jana Carter…

  • jumpnjiminy

    That was interesting…thanks.

  • Rico Stifler

    That pass had perfect placement. Rivera didn’t have to break stride or run to the ball….

  • marks hair

    for the second year in a row the Raiders best rookie is not a player reg targeted and drafted.. but a fa who chose the Raiders because of our weakness at their respective positions.. maybe it’s better to be lucky than good if you’re a gm..

  • The_Judge37

    Finally, some good news

  • seymour bush

    Funny what you guys are saying. Quick reads, quick decisions, proper decisions, accurate throws, hitting receivers in perfect stride. Exactly EVERYTHING Pryor does NOT do.

  • lefty12

    Actually Reggie did target him just not in the draft.He still gets credit for signing him.

  • Rico Stifler

    Unfortunately some of our receivers had rubbery hands on some passes….

  • Rico Stifler

    I have always said pryor could never do those things. lol

  • 10centsworth

    hmmm, maybe. It would have meant we saw 14 a game earlier.

  • Veldiman

    …and remember, MM was brought in as a “camp arm”. No way to spin a positive on this one, RM lucked out. The “camp arm” was stated by DA.

  • wildsach

    Most notably at Penn State as, “McMoxie”.

  • marks hair

    not to mention he brought in padron first..

  • 24

    Pryor has moments…or he HAD moments. His playmaking ability is just what the doctor ordered..err not Dr. Robert but that ability ran out when he became predictable, flushed too easily out of the pocket, ran to the right and pretty much ran the same play every play because of it…but it started off well and by the time the offensive line improved, we were able to reap the benefits from the fruits of the loin…

  • 10centsworth

    Kurt was willing to take the hit, for sure.

  • marks hair

    not to mention he brought in padron first.

    Hayden played quality minutes for almost half a season on a top-15 defense. He had one bad game and 6 out of 7 solid games.

    Monster turnover-causing tackle vs Pittsburgh.
    Game-sealing INT vs SD.
    Solid game in hostile KC Vs Bowe. We all remember his PI but he only allowed 1 catch.
    The other games…we didn’t hear his name because he wasn’t allowing much.

    To say this is a bust? Come on. He outplayed Dee Milliner, and it’s safe to say both of those guys will improve, as most rookie CBs tend to struggle early on. Hayden didn’t struggle that much outside of 1 game, showed physicality in tackling, solid coverage skills, and was part of the + turnaround for this D.

  • Breaking_Black

    GM and Coach decide on what personnel to bring in and which ones to cut. They get the glory and the criticism on all of that.

  • Theghostronin79

    The LAST person in that line-up that I expected to CLANK a wide open easy catch was Reece…… I just did a hard face palm after that play.

  • 24

    If McGloin wins 6 games, even that is a steal for an undrafted free agent QB. If he becomes better than that and the future of the franchise somehow…then you could simply replace him with Tyler Wilson in terms of making up for it.

  • kenchun24

    Gahhh! So sick of Raider players being so damn injury prone – old ones,new ones, it doesn’t matter! Do what Rashad “The Bod” Jennings does. Invest in your health outside of the Raider training staff and whatever skunk water is in Alameda practice facility. Buy a hyperbaric chamber, ride a bike to work, kale shakes with CLA supplements etc etc, instead of spending dough on flashy bling bling, buy the best foods/supplements or whatever.

    Rant over – go Raiders.

  • _Mista_

    Veld still not going with the 1’s. Can Watson play 2 weeks in a row?

  • Rico Stifler

    Yeah, I had a WTF moment when Reece dropped that easy first down and more…. The ball could not have been thrown any better. Right in the numbers….

  • wildsach

    Guaranteed, this team def has more W’s in it, under McMoxie.

  • Jim Jesus

    exactly

  • 24

    Veldheer is just getting back into the swing of things if any…there not going to press him until they know he’s 100% and you don’t want to shift too many things for McGloin. He needs consistency and familiarity around him I would think. Barnes has played very well at LT…better than at RT it seems so why ruin a good thing.

  • DutchRaid

    Gotta also figure in that he had a short window to prepare to play after recovering from surgery/rehab…

  • alex7

    1st round picks Hayden already outplayed:

    Dion Jordan, Eric Fisher, Luke Joekel, Chance Womack, Dee Milliner, DJ Fluker (just this week finally earning some PT), Tavon Austin (all you remember is his highlight-reel kick return. He’s been AWFUL as a WR), Sharrif Floyd, Bjoern Werner.

    Lane Johnson has also struggled with pass-protection in Philly, giving up sacks and having multiple penalties.

    Jarvis Jones was benched recently in Pittsburgh.

  • Till death do us part

    Are the majority of you guys against the dr because he bashes tp so much?

  • 24

    Ah…a QB who reads…

  • wildsach

    WE ARE !

    To my personal knowledge, the chamber is for real. Friend had diabetes, they started with whacking off his toes. That machine gave him, roughly, another five years. Not for everyone, but sure helped him out. Helps the blood flow to the extremities.

  • rifflicks

    McGloin a fluke??? Not hardly

    the result McGloin’s first series of downs as an NFL QB in the 2nd half of the 1st preseason game against Dallas

  • 24

    Could you guys explain to me more about this…”Chamber”?

  • alex7

    22 comments? How do you even know him? or are you him?

  • kenchun24

    All this is good – more reason why it sucks he got hurt bad enough to get IR’d…him and Watson should be playing EVERY game this year as #1 #2 draft picks. Nope,injuries banged up this, nicked up that.

    Only Sio Moore and maybe Rivera may be good enough ROS to mark this class grade D+ (C- at best) at the moment IMO.

  • alex7

    Pryor was constantly the WORST-rated QB in our pre-season games. Took the title 3 out of 4 games.

  • Rico Stifler

    I was watching the Streater TD and it looked like McG woulda had Reece open for a TD too as he had the LBer beat on the wheel route.

  • 10centsworth

    For me, he hijacks too many conversations and this insane alter ego demand for attention is more than annoying. BTW, this the new reincarnation?

  • 24

    Wow…magnificent!

  • Chino

    @VicTafur: Every #Raiders offensive lineman was at practice, though Brisiel & McCants were limited. My Thanksgiving prediction for Veldheer looks good
    Santa came early

  • 24

    What do you care?

  • AutumnThunderstorm

    This draft was not about immediate impact players, just about every pick was a long term project.

    It seems as though each player has had only one or two solid games and either disappeared or wished they had disappeared the other games.

  • Till death do us part

    Don’t know him , been reading this blog for years just stayed silent

  • Veldiman

    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.
