It was reported on Friday that Pryor passed a series of league-mandated tests before Friday’s practice. Additionally, on Friday, Terrelle Pryor had a full practice, looking back to normal, in which he told the press, after, that he felt great.
However, Coach Dennis Allen of the Oakland Raiders told the press on Friday that Pryor will have to go through a non-mandated test on Saturday to see if Pryor will start on Sunday.
“It’s something that has to be done,” said Allen to the press. "It's something that we want to do to make sure. I want to make sure we're making the right decision for this kid."
Pryor was very grateful that his club team was looking after his health and his well-being, but he ended by telling the press that he was 100 percent.
Terrelle Pryor’s injury occurred last Monday against the Denver Broncos when he was hit with a helmet to helmet tackle that gave him a concussion during the last quarter. Pryor had to leave the game during the last minutes after taking a couple of more snaps.
In the end, coach Dennis Allen did not confirm that Pryor will start until the non-mandated test is passed on Saturday. Allen also added that realistically Pryor will start if he does pass on Saturday, but it will not be announce until game day due to competitive reasons.
