Terrelle Pryor Injury: Raiders Doomed If Young QB Misses Extended Time
Losing their starting quarterback, Terrelle Pryor, to an injury is the last thing that the Oakland Raiders' need after losing by the score of 49-20 against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
ESPN's Paul Gutierrez reported that a knee injury forced Pryor out of the Oakland Raiders' blowout in the middle of the fourth quarter. Undrafted rookie free agent Matthew McGloin replaced him and completed 7-of-15 passes for 87 yards. It marked McGloin's first NFL action.
If he were to make his first NFL start due to Pryor's injury, Oakland would have no hope of victory against the New York Giants next week. Pryor is not only the Raiders' leading passer this season—he's their leading rusher.
The only other quarterback on their roster is another rookie, fourth-round pick Tyler Wilson who couldn't even beat out McGloin to make the active roster. Like McGloin before Sunday, Wilson hasn't attempted a pass in the regular season in his NFL career.
