Now, the players union reportedly wants to investigate why Pryor was allowed to return to the game after he took a big blow to the head from Denver linebacker Wesley Woodyard, according to Fox Sports.
“It's questionable,'' a source told ESPN.com.
“Based on reviewing the game tape, the union has concerns about whether Pryor was checked for symptoms before the decision was made to allow him to continue after Woodyard's hit, and whether Pryor went to the sideline and spoke with coach Dennis Allen before the next play, as Allen says happened,” ESPN's Ed Werder writes. “Allen said after the game that Pryor showed no immediate symptoms even though he lay face down on the field briefly after the hit. Allen stated his belief that the team followed the NFL's strict procedures.”
Here's what Pryor had to say about it on Tuesday.
Sorry about the loss RaiderNation. I don't remember much ! Good hit by whoever it was. I heard our team fought well .. We will be back!— Terrelle Pryor (@TerrellePryor) September 24, 2013
The problem, though, was that the team's training staff apparently didn't examine Pryor until after the series was complete. When asked after after the game if Pryor showed any signs of being concussed, Woodyard laughed twice before answering no.
Either way, the union would like to know exactly what happened.
