While Matt McGloin remains locked in a tough battle to land a spot on the Oakland Raiders regular season roster, his odds may be approving, according to at least two media reports.
Yahoo! Sports' fantasy football site reported on Tuesday that McGloin continues to take reps away from his competition, fourth-round draft pick Tyler Wilson.
Meanwhile, SBNation reports that Wilson is struggling with his accuracy.
“There's still just a little inconsistency there as far as accuracy issues,” Raiders coach Dennis Allen said according to the website. “He had some issues (Friday) just understanding where the protection was coming from. He's a rookie. Like a lot of rookies, he still has a long way to go and Tyler's continuing to work, and I think it's a good competition we have there between him and McGloin.”
Of course, McGloin is used to fighting for his spot on the field. Throughout his career at Penn State, McGloin battled heralded recruit for playing time before finally landing the starting job his senior season.
Elsewhere, Plaxico Burress' injury could be good news for Derek Moye.
With Burress' most likely out for the season, Moye remains the biggest receiver on the Pittsburgh Steelers roster. And, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette, quarterback Ben Rothlisberger desperately wants a big target in the passing game.
At 6-foot-5, Moye certainly fits the bill.
