Oakland Raiders expect Terrelle Pryor back for Week 5


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:

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.

    I am looking forward to T.P returning but we can’t expect him to be a one player team with Mcfadden and Reece questionable for next week. The O-line needs to protect our star qb! Noone wants to see Palmer Jr. At center!

    No doubt. If McFadden and Jennings are in(reece out still but hopefully not) with T.P. were good. Jennings is a chain mover. I’m not tripping on San Diego. When we play them twice a year its like a home game for both dates. Most if their stadium is RAIDER fans…..funny stuff.

    This is stupid now every time Matt flynn has less than 300 yards or 3 TDs they r gonna say he fell apart. Guys, u can’t expect him to have that 6 TDs every game. Just give him another chance.

      The seven sacks and pick 6 is the reason why he is a backup. TP is their starter.
