Raiders: Terrelle Pryor's injury more serious than originally thought

"It was obvious that there wasn't that explosiveness that we had seen out of him prior to the injury," Allen said. "I'll sit down and visit with Terrelle a little bit more and find out exactly where he is physically.

"It wasn't something that we thought was going to be a big factor going into the game. But, obviously, it was a factor."

Running back Rashad Jennings said he was "too dialed in" on his own job to notice whether Pryor's movement and play were restricted.

Allen said he admires Pryor for wanting to play at less than 100 percent, as he does with all his players.

At the same time, he added, there's a fine line between playing through pain and knowing when to ask out.
