Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was cleared to practice Thursday, but he hasn't yet been cleared to play following his concussion on Monday night. To that end, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that Pryor is unlikely to play against the Redskins in Week 4.
It's a bit of a surprise since Pryor's health seemed to be trending in the right direction after he was cleared to work out on Wednesday and practice today. But Schefter is one of the best when it comes to NFL reporting, so this is definitely not good news for the Raiders' offense. Oakland has a fantastic matchup this weekend, and Pryor was looking like a great play in two-QB leagues. But for Denarius Moore and Rod Streater , all bets are off if Matt Flynn is forced into action. He last started a regular-season game in 2011 and threw six touchdowns for the Packers in Week 17. But since then, he has lost quarterback battles on two different teams.
