Finally Terrelle Pryor's week? 

12/13/2012 | By Jerry McDonald | | Oakland Raiders:Finally Terrelle Pryor's week?

ALAMEDA -- The Raiders inch closer & closer to actually putting Terrelle Pryor in a game.

Pryor has suited up for each of the past two games without getting a snap, with game circumstances dictating otherwise. Coach Dennis Allen said the right opportunity could present itself Sunday against the Kansas City Coliseum.

Quarterbacks coach John DeFilippo said Thursday that the second-year quarterback has put in the requisite work to succeed.

"It's gone great. The kid hasn't let up (since training camp) in terms of work ethic & those things," DeFilippo said. "He's progressing nicely."

DeFilippo said Pryor never showed frustration@being inactive for 11 games of the season & has worked diligently on his footwork to improve his passing accuracy.

"There's always room for improvement in any quarterback, but he's making strides," DeFilippo said.

As for what kind of plays may be@Pryor's disposal, expect something that puts the quarterback in position to either run or pass based on his skill set.

"Whoever the quarterback is in there, whether it is Matt (Leinart), whether it is Carson (Palmer), whether it is Terrelle, you always want to do what they do best," DeFilippo said. "In terms of specific plays, that's up to (offensive coordinator) Greg (Knapp), but that's what we try to do in terms of the game plan.

Would be great to see. Wonder if he plays like  Foles in first game will coaches stay with him like Eagles did (Foles much better the following two games) or just say "told ya".

All three of the Raiders' last games are teams are looking@high spots in the draft, the Chiefs' are on pace for the No. 1 pick, the Panthers' the No. 5 pick & the Chargers' the No. 9 pick.

Be warned, how much garbage time are fans looking@in these last 3 weeks & if quarterback Terrelle Pryor is played & does well, how much will that have to do with that. Fans have to be careful of thinking that Pryor should have been played all along & would have made a difference in this season.

December 7, 2012 | Tom FitzGerald | RAIDERS BEAT | Will the Raiders play Terrelle Pryor?

As the Raiders' season winds into its final three weeks, it's just about time for Terrelle Pryor to see some long awaited game action.

"I think the biggest thing is to start getting him into the game a little bit and let him see a little game action," coach Dennis Allen said Friday.

He said he's not going to start Pryor in the next game, Dec. 16@home against Kansas City (2-10), but he wants to see what Pryor and other young players can do.

"We've got a package of plays that we've had up and available the last couple of weeks to get Terrelle in the game," Allen said.

Pryor's only action in a regular-season game came last season in the same game in which Palmer made his Raiders debut. Pryor was sent in to run a keeper but started too early. The penalty wiped out the play, & he left the game.

Some Raiders fans were clamoring for the 6-foot-6, 230-pounder Thursday night after the Raiders (3-10) endured their sixth straight loss, 26-13 to Denver.
