After almost a week of waiting, head coach Dennis Allen makes it official by naming Terrelle Pryor as his starting quarterback in Sunday’s finale at San Diego. Pryor hasn’t started a game since he won the 2011 Sugar Bowl while at Ohio State. Cornerback Philip Adams is on injured reserve with a groin injury and has been replaced by Brandian Ross.
The Raiders once again will be without Richard Seymour. The veteran defensive tackle hasn’t played since November 4 with lingering knee and hamstring injuries. Safety Tyvon Branch is questionable with an ankle injury. For the Panthers, running back Jonathan Stewart might play for the first time since week 12. He’s been out with a high ankle sprain.
The Raiders still have injuries but most of their key personnel are healthy and able to play on Sunday. The Chiefs are without wide receiver Dwayne Bowe who is one of their best players. A storied rivalry, these two teams also have the worst records in the NFL. The loser will gain a better pick in the 2013 NFL draft.
Oakland Raiders safety Tyvon Branch practiced for the first time this week, an encouraging turn for a struggling secondary sorely lacking depth.
It’s the first game back in Cincinnati for Carson Palmer. On the other side, former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson is now a special teams and defensive backs assistant coach and this reunion only adds to the storyline.
Oakland Raiders safety Tyvon Branch signed his $6.2 million franchise tag tender on Monday and reported to offseason workouts with the team.
The Oakland Raiders have placed the franchise tag on safety Tyvon Branch to keep him off the open market in free agency.
