Most Raiders fans probably want to forget last night's loss. Terrelle Pryor already has.

During the Oakland Raiders (1-2) 37-21 loss to the Denver Broncos (3-0) on Monday Football Football last night, quarterback Terrelle Pryor when he was hit by Denver Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard late in the game and suffered a concussion.

According to ESPN, the injury puts Pryor's status in doubt for Oakland's Week 4 contest against Washington.

Though he may not play next week as a precaution, Pryor's injury does not appear to be immediately serious and he went as far as to tweet that he feels great.

When asked about the hit, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen, who coached Woodyard as Denver's defensive coordinator from 2008-2010, responded:

"(It was) within the rules, it's inside the tackle box," Allen said. "But it was a pretty good hit."

If Pryor continues to improve as a passer, future contests against him may become something Broncos fans will want to forget. Though he is currently quarterbacking a struggling team, the 6'4, 233-pound second-year quarterback is athletic as they come and has shown potential in his four NFL starts.

On Monday, Pryor went 19-of-28 for 281 yards and a score while adding 36 yards on the ground. Two weeks ago, Pryor threw for 217 yards and rushed for 112 more in a 21-17 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

Pryor is gifted, and if he can stay healthy, he will evolve into a dangerous threat and a menace to play against for many years to come.
