Despite passing his concussion test, Terrelle Pryor will sit this week against the Washington Redskins. Backup quarterback Matt Flynn took most of the first-team reps in practice this week, and it appears the coaching staff feels he’s more prepared.
While safety is obviously the priority, it’s still a shame that Pryor will sit against a Redskins defense that’s been in disarray through the first three weeks. After the Raiders were unable to get their offense going for much of their Week 3 game against the Broncos last Monday, going up against a weak defense could’ve really given Pryor and company a chance to get in sync and put some numbers up. But instead, perhaps it will have the opposite effect, as the Redskins defense will have a chance to fine tune some things against Matt Flynn, who put together a disappointing performance during the preseason.
