NFL Injury Report:
Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen has told reporters,
including Paul Gutierrez of CSN Bay Area, that he will start getting quarterback
Terrelle Pryor “a little bit of game action” at the end of the season so the
team can see what they have in the athletic passer.
“I think the biggest thing is to start getting him in a game,
a little bit of game action,” Allen said Friday. “I'm not ready to say that he
would be a starter. I think that Carson, obviously, he's made a couple of
mistakes the last couple of weeks but yet, Carson's been one of the reasons
why, specifically, earlier in the year, why we had a chance in certain games.”
Pryor has only appeared in one regular season game, and that
came last season against the Kansas City Chiefs. While Allen doesn’t believe
the 23-year-old is ready to be a starter for the Raiders, the club does want to
see what it has in the second-year product of Ohio State.
This has a lot less to do with the play of current starter
Carson Palmer than it does with the Raiders needing to see what they have in
Pryor for the sake of their future, according to Allen. Palmer is on pace to
come close to Oakland’s single-season franchise record in passing yards, as he’s
currently on pace to hit 4683 yards, 27 touchdowns and 17 interceptions.

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.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, even though the Oakland Raiders decided to suspend linebacker Rolando McClain instead of releasing him right away after his on the field confrontation with head coach Jim Schwartz, he could still end up getting released.

At 3-10 and in the midst of another disappointing season, the Raiders don’t have a lot to lose at this point.
That’s why Oakland head coach Dennis Allen is thinking about giving second-year quarterback Terrelle Pryor some playing time over their final three games of the season. Allen said the team wants to get Pryor some in-game experience, but made sure not to insinuate that...
Dear Mr. Allen,
I understand why Pryor hasn’t been active until late in the season – I really do. I know you were saddled with him after the Raiders gave up a pick in the 3rd round for him and while he’s just the kind of guy that Al Davis liked – big, strong, fast and extremely athletic – he’s incredibly unpolished.
I know you likely don’t think he’s the...
Once considered a quality No. 2 option for fantasy football teams, Denarius Moore has fallen on hard times. The Oakland Raiders second-year wide receiver hasn’t even been a flex-play option as of late.

From Week 2-10, Moore, 23, averaged 71.9 yards per game with five TDs in eight games.
That’s an average of double-digit fantasy points...
Oakland head coach Dennis Allen insists that Darren McFadden is "fine" after tweaking his ankle late in Thursday night's loss to the Broncos.Fantasy Spin:The Thursday night game gives McFadden plenty of time to rest up before the Raiders' next game a week from Sunday against Kansas City. Unless we hear otherwise, he should be ready to go.
In a game of AFC West rivals, the Denver Broncos came into Oakland searching for their tenth victory. The Oakland Raiders came home desperately in the need of win, and why not against an old foe to get them right back on track. But once again, the Raiders failed to hold on and took another loss 26-13.
The Broncos set the stage from the start as they moved quickly down the field...
