RAIDERS CONSIDERING PRYOR AT QB

Written by 

Raiders coach Dennis Allen hinted Monday that the team has "discussed" using the third-string signal caller Terrelle Pryor in an expanded role, in what is considered a lost season for Oakland.

"Terrelle's working to get better and he's working to improve," Allen said of Pryor. "I've seen improvement in Terrelle. He's gotten better as a quarterback. He's continued to work. I don't think any of us feel like he's the finished product, including himself, but he has worked to improve."

Pryor remains third on the depth chart, behind Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart, but with the Raiders offense struggling and scoring less then 20 points a game this might be the time to give the strong armed athletic QB a look.

The Raiders are 3-8, having lost four straight games as they head into a week 13 showdown with the Cleveland Browns.

Pryor would add another dimension to an offense that has seen injuries demolish their backfield, losing both starting RB Darren McFadden and back-up Mike Goodson for the last several weeks.

Allen was less clear on exactly what role Pryor could play for the Raiders. Replacing Palmer completely seems somewhat unlikely, but Pryor could be used in special packages designed to take advantage of his mobility and big arm.
