Terrelle Pryor: Wesley Woodyard 'should get fined'

Terrelle Pryor doesn't remember all of Monday night's 37-21 loss to the Denver Broncos but, after watching the tape, the Oakland Raiders quarterback wants someone to pay up.

Pryor sustained a concussion in the fourth quarter on a monster hit from Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard. The hit came on a quarterback draw that left Pryor on the ground for a stretch before he continued to play. In a dazed state, he threw two more passes before retreating to the locker room.

Al's final project


Al Davis always believed in reclamation projects. Mark Kriegel says Terrelle Pryor now has a chance to revive the late Oakland Raiders owner's reputation. **More ...**

Pryor on Wednesday defended the Raiders' decision to leave him in the game, but he called Woodyard's hit an "illegal" shot with "helmet-to-helmet" contact.

The NFL Players Association is examining whether the Raiders followed the NFL's concussion protocol, but Pryor believes team doctors handled his concussion within the rules.

"Looked like I was functioning; I watched the tape," Pryor said. "I could definitely see why they didn't see it ... I was talking to them so I was fine because they were asking me (questions). Definitely a delayed reaction."

Back to the hit. Taking a look at the play, Pryor might have a point. We'll find out soon enough if the league agrees.
