Terrelle Pryor: Knee is 'stable'

OAKLAND -- It would appear as though Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor's pride was hurt more than his right knee as he stood at his locker following the Raiders' 49-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

"Embarrassing," Pryor said.

Pryor was taken out of the game midway through the fourth quarter after being hit going out of bounds, though Raiders coach Dennis Allen said the plan was for backup quarterback Matt McGloin to take over on the next series anyway and said he did not know Pryor was hurt until after the game.

"It's stable," Pryor said. "I can walk on it, nothing's wobbling.

"That's the first thing they asked: Was it wobbling? No."

As a precautionary measure, though, Pryor iced the knee in the locker room before addressing the media and will be re-evaluated Monday.

Running back Darren McFadden, meanwhile, aggravated the right hamstring he strained against Washington on Sept. 29. McFadden was injured on a 5-yard carry early in the second quarter.

"I'm just trying to ride with it right now, come in tomorrow and see what the trainers say," said McFadden, who finished with 12 yards on five carries. "It's just sore right now."

McFadden already missed a game this year -- Oct. 6 against San Diego -- and he never has played more than 13 games in any of his previous five NFL seasons due to injuries.

The Raiders were trailing 49-13 at the time Pryor left the game. He ended up throwing for 288 yards on 22-of-41 passing with two interceptions while also rushing for 94 yards on 10 carries.

Pryor missed a game earlier this season -- Oakland's home loss to Washington -- after he was concussed six days earlier at Denver.

"This one was just embarrassing," Pryor said. "It's not acceptable to me, and I don't like it."
