Injury Updates Week 11: Terrelle Pryor, Peyton Manning, Jason Campbell, Jay Cutler

Terrelle Pryor

Terrelle Pryor

A certain sprained ankle may be getting all the attention entering Week 11, but that’s not the only quarterback injury you need to know about. Athlon Sports has the latest on the quarterback injury front around the NFL.

Terrelle Pryor, QB, Oakland Raiders at Houston Texans

Cincinnati’s defense is pretty good, but Campbell has five touchdowns and no interceptions in his last two games, one of which was against Kansas City.

Christian Ponder, QB, Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks
Ponder dislocated his non-throwing shoulder in last week’s win over Washington, but he is listed as Probable and on track to start today. However, conside
