Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor finally gets his chance to play after sitting out his entire rookie season, with the exception being thrown in on a 3rd and 1 for QB sneak against the Chiefs last October.
Head coach Dennis Allen says Pryor will get plenty of snaps tonight behind Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart as they host a preseason matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, and he’s excited.
I can't wait," he said. "It's been a long time for me to play football. It's what I was born to do. God blessed me. He gave me great talent and I just want to try to ... use it again. It's been a long time."
"I'm just going to go in and try to perfect the play, go through the read. Like coach says, my feet got to stay on time," Pryor said. "When I go through the read, just keep the right read, and if I keep my feet on time, I'll be good."

Terrelle Pryor was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the third round of the 2011 supplemental draft. It was the late Al Davis’ last draft pick for a franchise that he ran for half a century. His last pick was the perfect story book ending to his great career. Selecting Pryor with a 3rd round pick not only fit Davis’ mold of targeting the biggest and fastest players, but by selecting...
Terrelle Pryor has been waiting a long time to actually get to play in a football game.
After an aborted rookie season with the Oakland Raiders that included no preseason games and a penalty before his only snap in the regular season, Pryor is more than ready for this season's exhibition opener. Pryor will get that chance on Monday night when the Raiders (tied for No. 23 in...
The 2012 NFL Pre-Season is officially underway for the Oakland Raiders. And what better way to start football again with a Monday Night contest? Several players were not able to suit up for the game due to injuries: WRs Duke Calhoun (knee), Eddie McGee (hamstring) and Denarius Moore (hamstring); RBs Taiwan Jones (hamstring) and Mike [...]
This is not what you want to hear. Aaron Curry, who is currently on the active/PUP list, will get a 2nd opinion on his ailing knees as they are not responding to stem cell treatment, according to the Contra Costa Times. They also go to say that he won’t make the roster “unless his knee responds to treatment soon.” Owed a non-guaranteed 3.5 million this season, the Raiders seem...
The Raiders are limping into their first preseason game - literally for some players. After being fairly low-injury for the first week of camp, the second week brought a multitude of lower limb injuries on players of most every position.
The Raiders are especially thin at linebacker where UDFA Mario Kurn suffered a knee injury that will put him on the I.R. list and he will not...
As the Oakland Raiders finished their last full practice before their Monday Night Football preseason opener against the Dallas Cowboys, a familiar face was in Napa. Former head coach Jon Gruden, who now announces for ESPN's Monday Night Football, was on hand to see the team practice before he calls the game. The Raiders went without pads as they prepare to see their first...
I’ve written a lot about the immense potential of Oakland Raiders’ tight end David Ausberry and so far my predictions in training camp has not shown Ausberry taking the next step in 2012 because of shaky run blocking on top of the fact his main asset in pass catching has been inconsistent with too many dropped balls during camp. [...]
Oakland Raiders preseason football debuted on Monday Night and even though the score was a 3-0 victory for the Cowboys there was still a lot to like about the debut. Some significant players had a great game and others struggled enormously which should cause concern for anyone. What makes this Cowboys game great for evaluation [...]
Inconsistency was the word of the game for the Raiders who were shut out at home in their 2012 preseason opener versus the Dallas Cowboys.
The starting offense only played a few series and moved the ball well but some miscues between QB Carson Palmer and WR Jacoby Ford kept them from capitalizing on Darren McFadden's hard running.
In the first drive, the Raiders moved down...
Darren McFadden needed one series to show he's in midseason form for Oakland following a foot injury that cut his last season short.
Most of the rest of the first-team offensive players for the Raiders and Dallas Cowboys need plenty of work to get back to that level.
McFadden picked up where he left off last season by gaining 38 yards on Oakland's first three plays of the...
The long anticipated return to live action for the Oakland Raiders ended in a 3-0 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in their preseason opener. The score in preseason games matter little because the starters and contributors play very little. The Raiders were able to get a look at the players on the roster and evaluate the strength and weaknesses.
Not quite ready for primetime
Cowboys, 3 – Raiders, 0
I confess to having watched every second of the trainwreck last night that was Cowboys vs. Raiders. The ugliest NFL team in the ugliest NFL town playing in the ugliest NFL stadium in front of the ugliest NFL fans against the team with one of the ugliest post-season track records over the past decade and a half can produce...
