OAKLAND – Quarterback Terrelle Pryor and running back Darren McFadden did not finish a 49-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, and coach Dennis Allen said their availability for practice this week was not known.
Pryor left because of a right-knee injury after he fell awkwardly on a fourth-quarter scramble at O.co Coliseum. McFadden carried five times for 12 yards but left in the second quarter with a hamstring strain.
"I have to look at it (today), but it's stable," Pryor said. "Nothing's wobbly or anything like that. It was just precaution. Nine minutes left in the game. We were losing."
Allen said the decision already had been made to play Matt McGloin at quarterback, and he didn't learn of Pryor's knee injury until after the game.
Pryor piled up big numbers (288 passing yards, 94 rushing yards), but in the first half when the Eagles were piling up points, he was unable to find open receivers if the first option was covered.
Pryor has one touchdown pass and seven interceptions in his past three games. He also has 256 rushing yards in those games and 485 on the season. The rushing record for a Raiders quarterback is 529 yards by Rich Gannon in 2000.
Other players who left the game with injuries were wide receiver Rod Streater (hip), linebacker Kaluka Maiava (hip) and tackle Matt McCants (foot).
Long week ahead – Free safety Charles Woodson expects the Raiders to hear a lot about the Eagles result after all the good press that resulted from two wins in the previous three games.
"We'll have to hear about it all week long," Woodson said. "They'll keep replaying this game, so we're going to take a beating, and we've got to stand up and accept it for what it us but understand that the season does go on and we have to go to work this week and prepare ourselves to make a long road trip out East and try to bounce back."
The Raiders, 0-3 away from O.co Coliseum, are on the road for four of the next five games. They visit the New York Giants on Sunday, then travel to Houston on Nov. 17. After hosting Tennessee on Nov. 24, they visit Dallas on Thanksgiving (Nov. 28) and are at the New York Jets on Dec. 8.
Joining the club – Players who made their Raiders debut included offensive tackle Menelik Watson, McGloin and linebacker Martez Wilson.
