UPDATE: Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor medically cleared to play Sunday

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor @TerrellePryor has seemingly gotten better every day since suffering a concussion on Monday night. On Friday, he took another step forward as he ramped up his practice participation and, according to NFL.com's Gregg Rosenthal, was medically cleared to play Sunday versus the Redskins.
Pryor will be tested again on Saturday "just to be safe," but he has passed all league-mandated tests. Head coach Dennis Allen said Friday that Pryor has made "significant progress" and will start if everything checks out on Saturday.

Update: Allen told reporters he hasn't decided if Pryor or Matt Flynn will start at quarterback this Sunday, and he won't say publicly whom he has chosen, for competitive reasons.

Fantasy Analysis:

This kind of flies in the face of a Thursday report from ESPN's Adam Schefter that started Pryor is "unlikely" to play this week. The Redskins-Raiders game is a late-afternoon kickoff, so there's some risk here if you are planning to start Pryor in this terrific matchup for him, but we should know for certain by tomorrow whether or not he will start. His chances look much brighter than they did 24 hours ago. And Pryor being active and starting over Matt Flynn definitely helps the fantasy values of Denarius Moore @DenariusMoore, Rod Streater @rodstreater80, and Darren McFadden @dmcfadden20.
