Raiders | Concerned with Terrelle Pryor's knee

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he's concerned with QB Terrelle Pryor's (knee) sprained knee after he looked tentative in the pocket in the team's Week 10 loss to the New York Giants. Allen and the coaching staff realize that the injury is more of a concern than initially believed. Pryor was 11-for-26 for 122 yards and an interception against the Giants. "It was obvious that there wasn't that explosiveness that we had seen out of him prior to the injury," Allen said. "I'll sit down and visit with Terrelle a little bit more and find out exactly where he is physically." Allen said he never considered removing Pryor from the game, however.
Pryor is an extremely dynamic quarterback, but only when he's able to scramble and create plays with his legs. He hasn't been able to do that now that he's hobbled, which limits his fantasy upside big time. Until we see assurance that he's close to 100 percent, it wouldn't be wise to start him.
