Pryor eligible to practice with Raiders as five-game ban ends

ALAMEDA, Calif. -- Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has completed his five-game suspension and now is eligible to practice with the team.

Pryor had to serve the suspension at the start of his rookie season when he was allowed to participate in the supplemental draft. Pryor left Ohio State instead of serving a five-game ban after being involved in a cash-for-memorablia scandal that has put the Buckeyes under NCAA investigation.

Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft Aug. 22. He hasn't been allowed to practice with his team since the end of preseason, but he has been attending meetings and doing individual drills.

The Raiders don't have to immediately make a corresponding move because of a one-game roster exemption.
