Rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor, who is suited up in silver and black game gear for the first game, won’t play on Sunday night against the Saints, on NBC.
But Michele Tafoya of Sunday Night Football reports that Pryor will play on Thursday night, when the Raiders wrap up the preseason against the Seahawks.
Coach Hue Jackson also told Tafoya that Pryor will be a quarterback, for now. “We’re gonna start there first and see where we go,” Jackson said.
After the preseason ends, Pryor’s five-game suspension will begin.
