Terrelle Pryor Passes Concussion Test, But Will Sit Against Redskins


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.

    But I guarantee you that if Flynn struggles from the get go he will be replaced by Pryor no later than the second half. This is a must win for the Raiders!
