The NFL Players Association is currently looking into how the Oakland Raiders handled the league concussion protocol in regards to what happened to quarterback Terrelle Pryor in Monday night’s 37-21 defeat versus the Denver Broncos.
The star quarterback suffered a concussion when hit by Denver’s linebacker Wesley Woodyard and still remained in the game for two snaps before leaving with medical staff for the locker room to be evaluated.
As of right now the union is waiting receipt of the official game report from Oakland before deciding how to move forward.
The team’s general manager Reggie McKenzie did not immediately return a message left on his cell phone.
YouWager experts consider that the union, based on reviewing the game tape, has concerns about whether the 24 year-old was checked for symptoms before the decision was made to allow him to continue after Woodyard’s hit, and whether Pryor went to the sideline and spoke to Dennis Allen before the next play as Oakland’s head coach says occurred.
According to Allen, after the game ended Pryor showed no immediate symptoms even though he lay face down on the field briefly after the hit. Allen stated his belief that the team followed the NFL’s strict procedures.
