Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has a sprained MCL in his right knee, he said after the Raiders' 24-20 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday.
"My knee is banged up," he said.
"I've got a sprained MCL. It just got worse during the week. So I was just trying to come out and play and try to help the team but just didn't feel well today."
Pryor sprained the knee last week and said it got worse during the week leading up to the Giants game. Pryor added he couldn't get any push off his leg and couldn't explode in the passing game. The only other quarterback on the Raiders' active roster is undrafted rookie Matt McGloin out of Penn State, while fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson is on the practice squad. The Raiders worked out veterans David Carr, Trent Edwards and Pat White last month.
The search for a quality backup passer behind Jay Cutler rages on.
The Chicago Bears announced Sunday that Trent Edwards has been signed to a contract, adding him to a pool of reserves that includes Josh McCown, Jordan Palmer and Matt Blanchard.
It's another clear signal the Bears have no interest in making JaMarcus Russell a part of the team. Edwards and Palmer joined Russell for a Friday workout with the team, triggered partially by Blanchard suffering a fractured knuckle on his non-throwing hand.
