Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is to get more opportunities as he prepares to make his comeback from injury, according to his coach Dennis Allen.

Pryor has been replaced by the in-form Matt McGloin in recent weeks, though Allen has insisted that he still wants to take another look at Pryor.

"I think we want to try to see more of [Pryor] at some point," said the Raiders coach.

"Injuries are a tough thing. 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.

"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."

The Raiders face New York Jets on Sunday evening.
