Terrelle Pryor injury: Raiders QB has sprained MCL

Pryor took a beating by the Giants and later admitted that he has a sprained MCL.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor confirmed that he has a sprained MCL. Speaking to reporters after Sunday's game, Pryor admitted that he's "very sore" but isn't expected to miss any time, saying he needs to "rest a little."

It's unknown when Pryor suffered the MCL injury, but he was beaten up by the New York Giants on Sunday. Pryor completed just 11-of-26 passes for 122 yards and an interception in the losing effort. The Giants neutralized his running threat, holding him to just 19 rushing yards. That may have more to do with his injury -- Pryor left the end of last week's game against the Eagles after taking a shot to the knee.

The Raiders have made no indication that Pryor will miss next week's game against the Texans, but aren't expected to update his status until practice starts. If Pryor is unable to go, undrafted rookie Matt McGloin will get the start. He is the only other quarterback on Oakland's depth chart.
