Terrelle Pryor accepts coach Dennis Allen's decision to leave him on the bench in the last month.

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has accepted his head coach Dennis Allen's decision to keep him on the bench.

After a number of poor performances and an injury, Matt McGloin was preferred to start and Pryor has not had a look in since November 10.

"I could sit here and say I disagree and this and that, but, at the end of the day, coach Allen is our leader and he's the one that has to make tough decisions," Pryor told NFL.com. "He made one, and it is what it is."

Pryor has thrown for 1,579 yards in his nine appearances this season.
