Pryor excited for exhibition opener



NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Terrelle Pryor has been waiting a long time to actually get to play in a football game.

After an aborted rookie season with the Oakland Raiders that included no preseason games and a penalty before his only snap in the regular season, Pryor is more than ready for this season’s exhibition opener. Pryor will get that chance on Monday night when the Raiders (tied for No. 23 in the AP Pro32) host the Dallas Cowboys (No. 15, AP Pro32).

While Oakland coach Dennis Allen is not even telling his players how much or when they will play, he did say Pryor would get plenty of snaps at quarterback behind starter Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart.
