Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is looking more and more like the future of the team at the position. However, it doesn’t help that he is having trouble remembering his immediate past.
During the fourth quarter of a 37-21 loss to the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football, Pryor took a shot to the helmet from linebacker Wesley Woodyard.
He would stay in the game for two more plays before being taken to the locker room. The budding dual-threat star was later diagnosed with a concussion.
Pryor himself doesn’t remember very much of it, however.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why the NFL has taken so many steps to ban helmet-to-helmet contact.
Pryor ended the night having completed 19-of-28 passes for 281 yards (his career high), a touchdown and no interceptions. He also tacked on 36 rushing yards on four carries.
He was replaced by Matt Flynn, the team’s presumed starter during the offseason. It has not yet been reported whether Flynn will be starting at home against Washington next week.
