Oakland Raiders coach Dennis Allen announced Monday that Terrelle Pryor will be the Raiders' starting quarterback for their regular-season finale against the Denver Broncos.
Pryor began the season as the Raiders' starting quarterback, but was replaced by Matt McGloin, who started the last six games for Oakland.
Allen said the decision to start Pryor was more about seeing what Pryor can do than disappointment in McGloin's performance.
Allen's job may be in jeopardy, so if Pryor shows signs of progress it may enhance Allen's chances of retaining his job.
Pryor started eight of the first nine games this season. He completed 57.7 percent of his passes for 1,591 yards, with five touchdowns and 11 interceptions, for a passer rating of 66.0. Pryor added 527 rushing yards.
McGloin completed 55.9 percent of his passes for 1,547 yards, with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions, for a passer rating of 76.1. McGloin has just 27 rushing yards.
