QB PALMER WILL NOT END THE YEAR WITH RAIDERS
Fri, 28 Dec 2012 01:30 AM EST

Raiders QB Carson Palmer suffered cracked ribs and a bruised lung after a hard hit by Carolina LB Greg Hardy and won’t play in the team’s final game.

Who will start in Palmer’s absence is uncertain.

Matt Leinart took control of after Palmer was knocked out of the game by the Carolina Panthers but struggled in his 1st intensive playing time this season. He completed 16 of 32 attempts for 115 yards, had a few passes sail out of bounds and threw a costly interception just before halftime.

Terrelle Pryor made a quick appearance against Carolina and caught a 22-yard pass from Palmer after originally taking the snap and throwing to Palmer behind the line of scrimmage. Pryor was also in on 2 plays near the goal line, running for 2 yards and passing for 5.

“We’ll get both those guys reps in practice with the first team this week,” Coach Dennis Allen said. “We’re not ready to make that call. We shall see how practice goes, and later on in the week we’ll be prepared to name a starter.”

That could be a 180-degree turn from Allen’s position after the 17-6 loss to Carolina when he announced that Leinart would be the team’s No. Two quarterback behind Palmer. He further said of Pryor — a 3rd-round pick in the 2011 supplemental draft and the final player selected by former team owner Al Davis — which “we do not feel like he’s prepared to be the backup quarterback just yet.”

Leinart definitely did not do much to help his very own standing, which might be why the Raiders coach is mulling a change.

The 10th overall pick in 2006, Leinart looked rusty while completing only 50% of his throws. Oakland drove down into the red zone twice with him at quarterback but settled for field goals both times. Leinart also threw an interception into triple coverage just before halftime with the Oakland trailing 7-3, and the Carolina Panthers converted the turnover into a touchdown that broke the game open.

“I think he would tell you there were some plays out there that we left on the table,” Allen announced of Leinart. “We expect him as well as any person to make those plays. But some of it manifestly has to do with getting rushed (in) and not getting an opportunity to play a lot.”

With the exception of 2 plays, Pryor spent the 2nd half on the sideline.

Raidersfans regularly have chanted Pryor’s name during home games this season and GM Reggie McKenzie has stated that he wants to see Pryor play to further evaluate the quarterback’s capabilities.

That could happen if Allen comes to a decision to give Pryor his 1st NFL starts next Sunday in San Diego.

“I don’t know that he’s got full command of everything that we’re doing, but I wouldn’t expect a great deal different out of any other young QB,” Allen expounded. “We’ll work him this week in practice (and) make a decision at the end of the week which way we want to go.”
