Game Prep: What The Raiders Are Saying
Houston (CBS Houston) – Editor’s Note: Each week the Texans’ opponent will hold a conference call with the Houston media. Here are the notes from that call.
This week, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen and quarterback Terrelle Pryor were made available. Here’s what they had to say:
>>>Terrelle Pryor’s status is still up in the air for Sunday.
“He’s got a sprained knee. Really, we’re kind of day-to-day trying to evaluate where he’s going to be and whether or not he’s going to be available this weekend.” Allen said.
“We’re taking it day-by-day. I know today we had a collective effort to see if I felt good enough where we’re at in terms of practice. We’ve got to do it again and see what we’ve got for tomorrow.” Pryor said.
>>>Case Keenum has caught the eye of Dennis Allen.
“I think this is a guy that obviously has come in and come in a tough situation against some pretty good teams and some pretty good defenses. I think his first start as against the Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead, at their place. I think he’s done a really nice job. He’s seven touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s protecting the football. He’s finding Andre Johnson and getting him the ball. You can obviously tell that he’s really trying to push the ball downfield. I’ve been really impressed with him.” Allen said.
>>>This won’t be the first time Terrelle Pryor plays against J.J. Watt.
“I played against him in college. I know he sacked me in college. He’s a good player. We’ve got to block him.” Pryor said.
>>>Pryor is still adjusting to a new Raiders offense.
“It’s really a new offense. I’m still learning about it every game, every practice and just trying to get better with it. Every day, you find something different that you get knowledge about. That’s where you want to be at, trying to learn something every day because you can from this offense and whatever offense you’re in.” Pryor said.
