Raiders head coach Dennis Allen mentioned he wants to give some of their younger talent including QB Terrelle Pryor and RB Taiwan Jones more work in the coming weeks, per Steve Corkran.
Oakland has maintained that they believe Pryor can be a quarterback in the NFL, but there are plenty of questions as to whether or not he’s capable of handling the position.
Jones, who played CB in college, said he would seriously consider switching back to the defensive side of the ball in the near future if that means he will be getting more playing time.
Jones has struggled with ball security issues this season which has limited his playing time to special teams duties. So far this season, Jones has only seen 6 carries in 10 games.
