While the Oakland Raiders don't have much to play for in terms of making the postseason, the final three games of the season could be big for a number of players on the roster. The Raiders are planning to evaluate the current 53-man roster, which means some new faces will get their shot to play.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie and head coach Dennis Allen are planning to evaluate every player currently on the roster. That means some players will receiver their first extensive regular season playing time including quarterback Terrelle Pryor.

While the starting lineup may not change, players will rotate in to see how they perform in regular season games. McKenzie said he wants to see what Pryor can do during a regular season game as that is the only way to truly evaluate him. When and how much Pryor and others play will be decided by the coaching staff.

Allen said the Raiders will try to get Pryor into the game and let him see game action, but wasn't ready to say he would start any of the final three games. In addition to Pryor, offensive lineman Tony Bergstrom and defensive end Jack Crawford are other players who could be in line for an opportunity to play.
