ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice for the first time since serving a five-game suspension.

Pryor practiced with his teammates on Wednesday, two days after his suspension was officially lifted.

Pryor had to serve the suspension when he was allowed to participate in the supplemental draft. Pryor left Ohio State instead of serving a five-game ban after being involved in a cash-for-memorablia scandal that has put the Buckeyes under NCAA investigation.

Pryor was selected by the Raiders in the third round of the supplemental draft Aug. 22. He took part in three practices during preseason but has only been allowed to attend meetings and do individual drills on his own since the end of the exhibition season.
