Pryor was sandwiched by Wesley Woodyard and Danny Trevathan during a designed quarterback run in Monday's loss to the Denver Broncos. The officials paused the game to review whether his knee was down before fumbling the ball, and Pryor had several minutes of downtime. The Raiders did not examine him for a concussion and he returned to the game without missing a play. After the game, Pryor went to Twitter and admitted he had no memory of the play.
Sorry about the loss RaiderNation. I don't remember much ! Good hit by whoever it was. I heard our team fought well .. We will be back!— Terrelle Pryor (@TerrellePryor) September 24, 2013
According to NFL protocol, sideline examinations are mandatory when a player is "slow to get up following a hit to the head." The Cleveland Browns came under fire in 2011 for letting Colt McCoy back in the game after suffering a severe concussion. The NFLPA is looking to find out why Pryor didn't receive immediate treatment after a brutal shot to the head.
