Terrelle Pryor has sprained MCL, sore knee
Pryor admitted after the Oakland Raiders’ 24-20 loss to the New York Giants that he has a sprained MCL in his knee and that it’s very sore.
“Very sore,” Pryor said of the knee, per the San Francisco Chronicle’s Vic Tafur. “Just need rest a little, try to get back as fast as possible.”
Pryor also said the knee injury prevented him from “exploding on throws and runs.” Pryor added that the injury became worse during the week of practice.
Pryor left at the end of last weekend’s blowout loss to the Philadelphia Eagles because of the knee, but the team called it a “precautionary” move. Maybe it was a real move, not a precautionary one.
Pryor was almost a disaster on Sunday. He went 11-of-26 for 122 yards and an interception. He only ran five times for 19 yards, a touchdown and a fumble. The offense only gained 213 yards and had 12 first downs. The Raiders are now 3-6 and will be at the Houston Texans next weekend. We’re guessing Pryor sits out most of the week of practice and plays in the game.
