Terrelle Pryor not practicing, Matt McGloin gets first team reps

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Raiders took the field for practice this morning and Pryor was not practicing with them. He stood on the side in a baseball cap as backup quarterback Matt McGloin took reps with the first team according to media present.

The initial injury suffered by Pryor came near the end of the Raiders blowout home loss to the Eagles. With the win well out of reach, McGloin stepped in for Pryor at that time and finished out the game.

At the time, both Dennis Allen and Terrelle Pryor said the injury was not serious. When the team took the field for practice the following week, Pryor practiced full with no restrictions.

Then for last week's game, Pryor was wearing a brace on his right knee and was visibly not as explosive as the Raiders lost to the Giants in New York. He said following the game that he had a sprained MCL and may need to rest it for a while. When a player talks like that, it often means they will miss a game or more.

McGloin is an undrafted rookie out of Penn State who was an off-season tryout and worked his way up to beating out Tyler Wilson as the third quarterback on the roster out of camp. Then week four, Matt Flynn got his first start and looked terrible. The combination of that performance and Flynn's attitude in the week following prompted the Raiders to cut him from the team.

The Raiders have not since signed a third quarterback to the roster. It has been just Pryor and McGloin active on game days with Wilson on the practice squad.

There will be two more practices this week to monitor.
