Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen isn't sure if the team's future quarterback is currently on their roster. Allen has said QB Matt McGloin has a future with the team but hasn't been as optimistic about QB Terrelle Pryor. 'I'm not sure that we have the quarterback of the future in the building right now, but again I think we'll go through the offseason evaluation process, I think we'll go back through all the tapes, we'll comb through everything. I do think we have a better idea of what we have at the quarterback position, but again I think, listen, that's the most important position on the football field,' Allen said.
Huddle Up: Both Prior and McGloin had brief flashes of success, but neither appears to be the solution in Oakland. A new quarterback might buy Dennis Allen a couple more seasons at the helm, but it's no guarantee.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen fired back Tuesday, Dec. 24, about the claims of QB Terrelle Pryor's agent, who said Monday, Dec. 23, that the coach is setting the quarterback up to fail by starting him in Week 17 against the Denver Broncos. "Well, first is, I'd say that's the stupidest thing I've ever frickin' heard,' Allen said. 'No coach in their right mind -- this isn't 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' This isn't made-for-TV drama. This is football, and we make our football decisions based solely on that. Nothing other than that."
Huddle Up: If you thought another lost season for the Silver & Black was going to end peacefully, think again.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor will be the starting quarterback Week 17.
Huddle Up: Matt McGloin has been uninspiring at best over the past weeks, and Pryor could be a decent fantasy start in Week 17 given his rushing skills and favorable matchup against a banged-up Denver defense.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he hasn't decided if QB Matt McGloin will receive his second straight start over QB Terrelle Pryor (knee). McGloin was 18-for-32 for 197 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 11 win over the Houston Texans. Allen will gauge Pryor's health this week before making a decision.
Huddle Up: Despite a report Monday that said Allen was strongly leaning toward staying with the hot hand in McGloin, it looks as if those owning a Silver & Black QB will have to see how the practice week plays out. Stay tuned ...

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) is out for Week 11. QB Matt McGloin will start in his place.
Huddle Up: As expected, Pryor will miss Sunday's game and McGloin will make his first career start. The undrafted rookie isn't a recommended fantasy play against the Texans' top ranked pass defense.

Oakland Raiders QB Matt McGloin received all of the snaps with the first-team offense during practice Friday, Nov. 15. McGloin will start Week 11 if QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) is not ready to play.
Huddle Up: McGloin is expected to start against Houston. While the undrafted rookie out of Penn State showed show promise in the preseason, he's not a recommended fantasy play this week in two quarterback leagues.

The Oakland Raiders are not expected to decide whether QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) or QB Matt McGloin will start Week 11 until right before game time. Offensive coordinator Greg Olson will have two game plans ready for the game.
Huddle Up: At least the Raiders have an early kickoff Sunday if you need to make a lineup decision. Check back with the Huddle's Game-Day Inactives, Injuries and Weather report.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) is unsure if he'll play in Week 11 against the Houston Texans despite returning to practice Thursday, Nov. 14. QB Matt McGloin took the majority of the first-team repetitions at practice. Head coach Dennis Allen thinks Pryor will start if he's cleared to play. 'He got some reps with the first team and we'll see how he looks tomorrow,' Allen said. 'All you can do is watch practice and go with what you see on the practice field. If he looks like he's at health then he'll be ready to go.'
Huddle Up: Be wary of Pryor if he does start as his stats have been on a downward spiral -- 1 TD pass, 8 interceptions over last 4 weeks; season-low 19 rushing yards in Week 10 -- of late.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said he's concerned with QB Terrelle Pryor's 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.
Huddle Up: The knee issue most directly affects his rushing prowess, but Pryor's overall passing numbers have taken a noticeable downturn over the past 4 games with the QB accounting for only 1 passing TD and 8 interceptions over that span. The number of teams on bye are thinning out over the next few weeks, and Pryor might be best suited for the bench until his health and stats improve.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 7.
Huddle Up: The Silver & Black claimed Pryor's absence at the end of the Week 9 blowout loss to the Eagles was only precautionary, and that's looking like it was the case as the QB now has practiced both Wednesday and Thursday.
Posted: 11/4/2013 11:21pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) is considered day-to-day because of the knee sprain he suffered Week 9.
Huddle Up: All in all, it doesn't sound too bad but see what Pryor is able to do in practice this week.
Posted: 11/3/2013 8:32pm et
Updating a previous report, the injury that forced Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (knee) from the Week 9 game against the Philadelphia Eagles was a knee injury. He was taken to the locked room for evaluation, and did not return.
Huddle Up: Hopefully it's not serious. The game was completely out of hand by the time he left.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen is content with sticking with QB Terrelle Pryor as the quarterback of the present and future for the franchise. 'I mean, I don't think he played as well as he would have liked (in a Week 6 loss to the Chiefs). But again, he's still a young player. That was only his fifth start of the season. So he still has a lot growing to do and a lot of getting better to do, but he's a talented player and we're going to try and continue to build with him and try to grow with him,' Allen said. The Raiders are content with Pryor as their leader and will not create competition for his job.
Huddle Up: Don't worry too much about Pryor's struggles (216 passing yards, 3 picks) vs. K.C. as he was playing in back of a decimated offensive line and the Chiefs' D has been making all opposing QBs look silly. Look for Pryor to regain his previous form following the bye.

Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) went through a full practice session Wednesday, Oct. 2.
Huddle Up: Pryor will start on Sunday against a Chargers' defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to quarterbacks so far this season. If your quarterback is on a bye and you need a replacement this week, Pryor is a strong option.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said Monday, Sept. 30, he was comfortable with the decision to sit QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) for an extra week, and Pryor won't be allowed to play until he is 100 percent. 'He's got to be symptom free,' Allen said, 'whenever that point is. And we're going to continue to monitor him until he's symptom free.'
Huddle Up: Pryor was close to playing, but a few symptoms surfaced Saturday, nixing his Week 4. Look for the QB to return to action this week.
Posted: 9/29/2013 2:54pm et
The Oakland Raiders have decided against starting QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) Week 4 because he showed some concussion symptoms Saturday, Sept. 28.
Huddle Up: Take him out of your lineups if you have him in there.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) increased his workload in practice Friday, Sept. 27, and is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. Head coach Dennis Allen said he's happy with Pryor's progress and isn't ruling him out just yet. Pryor has been cleared to play, as well. Pryor has passed all the league-mandated tests for concussions and will be tested one more time Saturday, Sept. 28. If he checks out, he will play Sunday, Sept. 29.
Huddle Up: Reports have swung back and forth this week on Pryor's chances of playing Sunday, but that's how it goes with concussions in today's NFL. If you need to start Pryor, definitely check back Saturday and a couple times Sunday for the latest updates.

According to an ESPN report, Oakland Raiders CB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) likely will not play in the team's Week 4 game because of the concussion he suffered Week 3
Huddle Up: Earlier it was reported that Pryor had been cleared to return to practice, but the QB is facing an uphill battle dealing with a concussion on a short week coming off the Monday night game. See if the next few days bring any good news.
Posted: 9/26/2013 6:00pm et
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (concussion) was cleared to return to practice and will be listed as limited Thursday, Sept. 26.
Huddle Up: Hopefully they didn't clear him too soon, but it looks like Pryor might be able to play this weekend. He has a real nice matchup against Washington.
Posted: 9/24/2013 9:58am et
Updating a previous report, Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor was diagnosed with a concussion in Week 3. His status for Week 4 is unknown.
Huddle Up: You know the drill: Pryor will need to pass through the various stages of the league's concussion protocol before being cleared to play.

Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor (undisclosed) left the Week 3 game in the fourth quarter against the Denver Broncos Monday, Sept. 23, due to an undisclosed injury. He was taken to the locker room, and the television crew on ESPN guessed Pryor might be going in for a concussion evaluation. QB Matt Flynn finished up for Pryor.
Huddle Up: Pryor took a jarring shot running up the middle down near the goal line and left the field shortly after. For a one-sided game and only his 4th NFL start, though, Pryor played well, completing 19-of-28 passes for 281 yards and a TD and finishing as the lone Raider with double-digit rushing yards (36 yards on 4 carries. More importantly, he didn't turn the ball over, but as with all mobile QBs, the concern is the hits they take and we'll see if this one will result in any additional lost playing time for Pryor.

Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor will be the team's starting quarterback Week 2.
Huddle Up: Filed under: duh. Pryor played well enough against the Colts—nearly leading the Raiders to improbable victory—that he should be starting for the foreseeable future. He is a nice add on the waiver wire as a backup.
Posted: 9/9/2013 10:25am et
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor was 19-for-29 for 217 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in Week 1. He rushed 13 times for 112 yards.
Huddle Up: Pryor's 112 yards is the top rushing performance of Week 1 thus far--better than any running back, including Adrian Peterson. And his passing performance was better than expected as well. Going forward, Pryor's feet make him a fantasy factor and if he continues to throw the ball adequately he may push for fantasy starter status.
Posted: 9/3/2013 12:55am et
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor will be the starting quarterback in the team's Week 1 game.
Huddle Up: Shortly after our previous update, news broke on multiple media outlets that the third-year QB, with all of 1 career start and 30 pass attempts, will get the call Sunday against the Colts. Meanwhile, that makes 2 late preseason passovers in 2 years for Matt Flynn, but Pryor will at least give fantasy owners some always-valuable QB rushing production.
Posted: 9/2/2013 3:35pm et
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor received the first snaps with the first-team offense during practice Monday, Sept. 2.
Huddle Up: It seems fated Matt Flynn's job will be taken once again. Pryor has some upside as a running quarterback, but don't get your hopes up based on his preseason—he did his damage against second- and third-team defenses, and that offense isn't exactly Seattle-caliber.
Posted: 8/30/2013 9:43am et
Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor threw for just 31 yards Thursday, Aug. 29, in a 22-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Pryor lasted just one half in an attempt to lock down the starting quarterback job.
Huddle Up: Maybe Matt Flynn hasn't been relegated to backup duty just yet. And those who eyed the athletic Pryor as a viable fantasy option might have to rethink that position as well.
Posted: 8/24/2013 10:39pm et
Oakland Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said QB Terrelle Pryor could receive some practice time with the first-team offense during practice this week.
Huddle Up: Pryor is making a strong push for the starting job after Matt Flynn has been unimpressive this preseason. Raider Nation has been screaming for Pryor and it looks like he's at least even with Flynn heading into the final preseason game. Pryor offers more upside because of his rushing numbers but neither quarterback is on the fantasy radar at this time.
