Dennis Allen says Terrelle Pryor still has to work on his fundamentals

With quarterback Carson Palmer unable to play in the Raiders’ season finale this Sunday, head coach Dennis Allen admitted that Terrelle Pryor doesn’ have enough command of the offense yet.

“He’s still a work in progress as far as that’s concerned.” Pryor doesn’t have full command of the offense, he said, but “I wouldn’t expect a lot different out of any other young quarterback.”

Pryor still needs to work on fundamentals, Allen said – “his footwork in the passing game, going through his reads, going through his progressions.”

After the game, Pryor said of the possibility of starting, “I’m not the coach. I definitely don’t make decisions like that. I don’t talk much. I just go out and do my job. Whatever God has for me, it’s going to happen. If not, I’ll be fine.”

I’m sure Pryor will get some snaps this week, but I think Matt Leinart will end up getting the start.
