Terrelle Pryor will be inactive due to concussion symptoms

After passing his concussion tests throughout the week, all looked good for Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor who was expected to start today’s game against the Washington Redskins.

However, after some last minute decisions, Pryor will not be getting start, rather, backup Matt Flynn will be given the opportunity after Pryor began to experience some concussion like symptoms last night, this according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.

Obviously wanting to do the right thing, the Raiders immediately informed the team that Pryor would be inactive and would have another week of rest after the issues began to occur.

Matt McGloin will take over the backup duties behind Flynn.

Pryor suffered the concussion late in the Raiders’ Monday night matchup against the Denver Broncos and admitted earlier this week he had little recollection of what happened – not exactly something the NFL was likely overly thrilled to hear.

The Raiders had given Pryor an extra, precautionary concussion test on Saturday afternoon, which he passed so the fact that the symptoms began to reoccur last evening were unexpected.
