SEATTLE (AP) — If Oakland rookie quarterback Terrelle Pryor is going to see the field before serving a five-week suspension, it’ll be Friday night in Seattle in the Raiders and Seahawks’ preseason finale.
And if Pryor does play less than two weeks after being selected in the supplemental draft by the Raiders, he’ll do it against an old friend, Seattle coach Pete Carroll.
Asked on Thursday about Pryor, Carroll remembered being impressed by Pryor’s athleticism as a high school star in Pennsylvania. The two faced off in college when USC won at Ohio State in Carroll’s last season with the Trojans.
Oakland coach Hue Jackson isn’t saying if Pryor will play on Friday. After the game Pryor will be ineligible to practice with the Raiders until serving his suspension.
