ALAMEDA -- So there he was, more than 30 minutes after the Raiders had concluded practice on Friday, out on the far field wearing a red No. 6 practice jersey, working with what looked to be a ball boy. Or an assistant trainer.Terrelle Pryor's NFL-mandated five-game suspension for "decisions that undermine the integrity of the eligibility rules for the NFL draft" to start the season is about to gobble up its third game this weekend.This despite Pryor's appeal being heard by the league last week."Nothing to report," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told CSNCalifornia.com in an email on Friday, in response to one asking if there was any movement on the appeal.So even if Commissioner Roger Goodell were to reduce the suspension, say by next week, Pryor would still have sat out 35 of his ban.Pryor, whose career at Ohio State came to an inglorious end with his starring role in the Buckeyes' memorabilia-for-tattoos scandal, has only been allowed to sit in on team meetings and, as observed earlier, cannot practice with the team; he can only work out on his own.With no reduction via appeal, Pryor's suspension is due to end following the Raiders' game at Houston on Oct. 9.
