It's uncertain that Oakland Raider QB Carson Palmer (thumb) will be able to play Sunday vs. the Cleveland Browns, and that means Matt Leinart will get the start.
It also means Terrelle Pryor will be right behind him, and might possibility see action as well. "I'm preparing to play," Leinart said. "Terrelle, he might get some stuff where we can use his athletic ability. ... You just keep preparing."
Jerry McDonald of the San Jose Mercury News says Pryor suiting up this week is still up in the air, but head coach Dennis Allen wants to see him in uniform soon.
"Somewhere down line we need to see what he can do," Allen said. "Now when that time is, I don't know the exact answer for that yet. But there will be a time where we've got to get a look at him."
Another guy would really love to see him suit up, Pryor himself. "I feel like I haven't played in a year," he said this week. He hasn't seen any action since August 30th in a preseaosn game with the Seahawks (6 of 9 passes for 55 yards).

It’s already becoming an unfortunate trend to the 2012 Oakland Raiders. For the fourth week in a row, the Silver&Black has seen the game get out of hand early, with the defense conceding too many points and the offense not being able to keep up with the opposition. It was no different against the Bengals last Sunday, when the Raiders [...]
Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden is no stranger to injuries. The former fourth overall pick is now in his fifth season, and it is going to be the fifth in which he has not been able to play a full 16 games. There are injuries players can battle through and others that they can’t, and McFadden has apparently never had an NFL season without one of the ones you can’t...
Paul Guiterrez of CSNBayArea.com sat down with Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenizie and asked if linebacker Rolando McClain has played his last game in Oakland.
“It’s going to be a possibility because we suspended him,” said McKenizie, per Guiterrez. “Now, it’s always what’s going to happen afterward. What’s his approach afterward? I know what he texted...
Raiders FB Marcel Reece will be used primarily as a halfback on Sunday while Darren McFadden works on his conditioning, per Steve Corkran.
The report indicates that Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Knapp doesn’t consider McFadden ready to play for more than a limited number of snaps (if any) on Sunday, considering Reece is getting looks at running back.
Without McFadden in the...

In the video above featuring some NSFW language, you can see the man urinate on the Palmer jersey...
