Pryor completed 2 of 5 passes for 20 yards, while rushing three times for 4 yards. He came close twice to throwing for a touchdown on his only drive. But a 15-yard touchdown pass to Rod Streater was batted away by the defense, and a 23-yard touchdown pass to Andre Holmes fell incomplete because of a bad pass by Pryor.
Coach Dennis Allen explained after the game why Pryor only appeared for the one series.
"Obviously, Terrelle moved the ball downfield for us," Allen said, per The San Francisco Chronicle. "But we really had something going with Matt (McGloin) in the second half."
"I don't think Matt's done anything to play himself out of that position," coach Dennis Allen said. "I think as Terrelle gets more and more healthy, to be able to see him more involved in the offense is something that we'll continue to look at. I think Matt has gone in and handled himself pretty well. Really, in every game that he's been the starting quarterback, we've had an opportunity to win those football games."
McGloin has started the last three games since Pryor went down with a knee injury, and Allen sounds as if he isn't quite sure where Pryor is at right now. Pryor was available over the last two games, but did not see the field.
"Injuries are a tough thing," Allen said. "They're hard to account for. You don't know how things are going to respond and how quickly people are going to get back. Obviously, not getting action against the Titans was good rest for him. With the short week, and again, only having 20 plays in the second half, we weren't able to get him involved in the offense. But I think that’s something we want to look at moving forward, but we'll see how that plays out."
