Terrelle Pryor to start on Sunday


UPDATE: There are conflicting reports on the Raiders current starting quarterback situation. Jay Glazer is reporting that Matt Flynn will get the nod.

The Oakland Raiders will have starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor on Sunday when they host the Washington Redskins. There were some questions about whether or not Pryor would be able to take the field this week after suffering a concussion during the team’s loss against the Denver Broncos in Week 3.

According to reports, Pryor has passed the league mandated concussion tests and has been given the green light to play.

During the week, back up quarterback Matt Flynn took a majority of the first-ream reps, but that wasn’t enough to get him the start once doctors decided Pryor was healthy enough to re-enter the starting line up.

When Pryor is on the field, the Raiders offense is at it’s best, so they have to be excited to have their top signal-caller under center when they take on the struggling Redskins.

It is going to be fun to watch two of the young, versatile quarterbacks in Pryor and Robert Griffin III going at it on Sunday, so the Redskins at Raiders game may be a bit better than we would have imagined considering how putrid the two teams have been.
