Jackson said Pryor had been very attentive in the meetings, took notes and asked lots of questions.
"Just like you'd like for a young quarterback to be," he said. "He spent a lot of time out here preparing himself and getting ready. I could not be a part of this. Our coaching staff could not be a part of it but the young man, I can tell, he did a lot of work prior to today. It shows that he's gotten better."
Campbell described Pryor as mostly quiet in those meetings but not afraid to speak up if he felt it was needed.
"He'll come up with suggestions. He'll write it on the board -- 'I think we should do this on this play,'" Campbell said. "So I said, 'What are you, our consultant now?'"
The Raiders have a one-week exemption before Pryor counts on the 53-man roster.
NOTES: The Raiders had only 10 men on the field for Michael Huff's game-ending interception against Houston, with S Jerome Boyd mistakenly running off the field. Mike Mitchell said he and fellow S Tyvon Branch were the only players who realized it. "But we couldn't do anything. We had to play it out, and we didn't want to be too crazy because then they would realize it," Mitchell said. ... Starting MLB Rolando McClain did not practice because of an ankle injury and was limping during the open media window. ... CB Chris Johnson, who missed the past two games with a hamstring injury, returned to practice on a limited basis. ... RB Rock Cartwright (calf), CB Chimdi Chekwa (hamstring), TE Richard Gordon (hand), FB Marcel Reece (ankle) and DE Matt Shaughnessy (shoulder) all missed practice.
