Raiders to start QB Pryor Sunday vs. Chargers

The Oakland Raiders have announced 23-year-old QB Terrelle Pryor will start Sunday versus the San Diego Chargers in place of the injured Carson Palmer.

After being deemed not ready to be the backup when Palmer got hurt last week in Carolina, Pryor now gets the chance to make his first career NFL start. The Ohio State product will be making his first start since the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 4, 2011.

The LVH SuperBook put this Sunday’s game back on the board this afternoon and has the Raiders listed as 9.5-point road underdogs with the total set at 39.5

Pryor was taken in the third round of the supplemental draft in August 2011 by late Raiders owner Al Davis. The Former Big Ten Freshman of the Year got a few snaps in the preseason but was then inactive for the first 11 games of this year. He also saw action briefly the past two weeks in specialty packages.
