Terrelle Pryor injury: Raiders QB ruled out for fantasy owners

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Terrelle Pryor is questionable on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans. Pryor was originally listed as questionable on the official injury report with a knee injury, but he has since been downgraded to out. Pryor practiced with the team on Friday, but it sounds like he was a limited participant and that he didn't look good running around.

Pryor is not a pass-first quarterback. He has completed 132 of 224 yards for 1,559 yards and five touchdowns. He also has 10 interceptions, though. He leads the team in rushing with 68 carries for 504 yards and two touchdowns. He's kept the Raiders in games thanks to that rushing ability.

But if it's a knee injury, that will hamper him in said run game and that would take away perhaps the Raiders' top offensive weapon at this point. If he can't go, Matt McGloin would be getting the start.

Fantasy Impact: McGloin is an unknown commodity at this point, but if you're depending on Pryor for your fantasy team's success, you aren't exactly in a desirable position regardless. Pryor owners should look to other options at this point.
