ALAMEDA -- Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was practicing and appeared to be moving without pain Wednesday, an indication a knee sprain won't keep him out of the Raiders' game against the New York Giants.

Pryor left in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's 49-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles after being tackled following a scramble.

Running back Darren McFadden, who left in the second quarter because of a hamstring strain, was not at practice.

Others who weren't practicing were wide receiver Juron Criner (shoulder), right tackle Matt McCants, tackle Tony Pashos (hip) and linebacker Kaluka Maiava (ribs). Criner was wearing a sling and McCants had a protective boot.

Returning to practice was center-guard Andre Gurode (knee) and wide receiver Andre Holmes (hamstring). Gurode has been inactive for the past two games and Holmes was inactive against the Eagles.

Players who were listed as injured coming out of the Eagles game but were at practice included wide receiver Rod Streater (hip), and kicker Sebastian Janikowski (ribs).

  • New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin and quarterback Eli Manning weren't putting much stock in the Raiders' result against the Eagles, noting the solid play of the defense over the first seven games of the season.

    The Giants beat the Eagles 15-7 the week before Philadelphia exploded for seven touchdown passes from Nick Foles against the Raiders.

    "It makes you scratch your head, there's no doubt," Coughlin said by conference call. "The way we look at it is the Eagles just had one of those days . . . guys were falling down in coverage, DeSean Jackson runs a post route and the ball falls right in his hands. Sometimes things happen and they certainly were prevalent on that particular day.

    "Yet the Raiders had (92) snaps and 560 yards. I mean, it was really kind of a shake your head kind of a deal."

    During his conference call, Manning said, "I just kind of have eliminated that game almost from my preparation.. There were a lot of weird plays. . . . Philadelphia caught every break and for Oakland everything that could go wrong went wrong."

    The Giants started out 0-6 but won two straight before having a bye last week.
