The Oakland Raiders may have to take the field without quarterback Terrelle Pryor against the Washington Redskins in Week 4 with the team listing the up-and-comer as questionable according to Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com:
Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s injury status has been the focus of the week leading up to Sunday’s game against Washington. Pryor, questionable with a concussion, isn’t the only Raider uncertain to play.
Heading into Week 4, Pryor’s playing status was in serious doubt due to a concussion sustained in the loss to the Denver Broncos. Although Pryor continued to play after the concussion-inducing hit by Wesley Woodyard, the third-year quarterback was diagnosed with a concussion after the game.
All week long, the consensus has been that backup Matt Flynn would assume the role as the starter against the Redskins on Sunday. As a result of Flynn potentially being the starter, head coach Dennis Allen has been going into this week with the mindset that either quarterback could end being the starter against Washington.
As of right now, the Raiders coaching staff is using the advantage of keeping the Redskins guessing in terms of which quarterback they’ll be facing in Week 4. Flynn would be the logical choice to start, but don’t be surprised if Pryor ends up as the starter.
Allen has said that Pryor has been cleared for contract and will be available even if Flynn is the starter on Sunday. With that being said, many believe that Pryor will ultimately be under center against the Redskins.
