Raiders vs Titans inactives: Terrelle Pryor active, Menelik Watson inactive

The inactives have been released and there were a couple interesting names among them. That of Tyler Wilson and Menelik Watson.

The reason Tyler Wilson's inactive status is interesting is because he is inactive in favor of Terrelle Pryor who will be the primary backup for starter Matt McGloin. The talk all week was of the possibility of Pryor playing in special packages for the Raiders but he didn't appear to be 100% at practice which would suggest to me that he is simply the backup this week.

Any packages in place for Pryor would involve his mobility in some regard and without him at full speed, any such packages would not have the desired effect. But I guess we'll see.

Menelik Watson is surprising because he practiced full all week and appears to be a healthy scratch. Tony Pashos will get the start at right tackle and he will be backed up by Matt McCants.

The entire inactive list is as follows:

QB Tyler Wilson, WR Denarius Moore, RB Darren McFadden, SS Tyvon Branch, OG Lamar Mady, OT Menelik Watson, DE Jason Hunter

Titans: QB John Skelton, WR Damian Williams, DB Micah Pellerin, LB Zac Diles, C/G Kevin Matthews, T Byron Stingily, DT Mike Martin
