Although a lot of fans would like to see more of Terrelle Pryor in 2012, it's very unlikely that he'll be placed in the primary backup position over Matt Leinart. Pryor has a great attitude and a strong worth ethic, but he's still a work in progress. According to ESPN:
Coach Dennis Allen remarked recently, “I have expectations of him to develop as a quarterback on a daily basis. ’m not setting anything as far as where I want to see him on the depth chart or how many passes or anything like that. I just want to see him get better every day. That’s what he’s come out here and tried to do, and if he continues to do that, at the end of the day he’s going to be all right.”
Pryor is also dealing with some rather difficult emotional stress after the recent death of his father and mentor and he hasn't gotten a lot of reps at training camp. While I'm rooting for him to do well, the most likely scenario for him this year is to get a little more time on the field than he did in 2011. It's going to take some time before he can be a solid backup to Carson Palmer.
I'd expect we'll see him in the game on Monday against Dallas at some point, and perhaps it will give us more of a glimpse on when, and if, he'll be ready.
