The Oakland Raiders had expected starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor to take the field on Sunday against the Washington Redskins after being cleared following his concussion suffered last week by the medical staff, but some late symptoms on Saturday night forced the team to roll with back up Matt Flynn as Pryor was inactive.
Flynn greatly struggled during the game and showed why Pryor clearly beat him out as the Raiders lost to the Redskins, 24-14, but it looks like Pryor could be back in action as soon as next week.
From Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated:
Allen said team wanted to exercise extreme caution with Pryor, so held him out. Feels good about him playing next week.

The Raiders are set to take on the division rival San Diego Chargers, who have been on a recent roll, next week and having Pryor back in the line up will greatly increase their chances of treating the home fans to a win.
