Raiders head coach Dennis Allen has named Terrelle Pryor the teams quarterback for their Week 17 game against San Diego. Matt Leinart will serve as his backup.
Pryor has totaled eight offensive plays in his two year career with the Raiders and reports earlier this season suggested he was miles away from being an NFL ready QB. Though considering Leinart is not expected to return to the Raiders it is hard to fault Allen from seeing what he has in Pryor.
The Chargers defense is rated 18th against the pass and 4th against the run.
