Terrelle Pryor out against Washington Redskins? That's exactly what it looks like according to a report from ESPN on Thursday night (Sept. 26). The report states it is unlikely that Pryor is going to be able to return as he tried to deal with a concussion he suffered on Monday night (Sept. 23). It took place against the Denver Broncos and has kept him from really getting back into practice this week.
Pryor did take part in Thursday's practice on a limited basis after passing a concussion test, but he still hasn't been given the go-ahead by his head coach. Dennis Allen stated, "There's still some hurdles that he has to clear but he was cleared to go ahead and noncontact practice. He was able to get in there and practice some on a limited basis today."
It makes sense that the team would want to take it easy with their quarterback, especially after the Ohio State product has started showing that he might be able to lead a NFL offense to some success. Without him on the field, the Oakland Raiders will have to turn to either Matt Flynn or Matt McGloin to take the snaps on Sunday (Sept. 29). The team hasn't yet revealed who will step in, but a safe assumption could be Flynn.
With Terrelle Pryor out against the Washington Redskins, fantasy football owners that were taking a chance on him might need to find someone else on the waiver wire this week. This is where trying out E.J. Manuel might be a good move as he continues to do well for the Buffalo Bills. Moving forward, though, Pryor should be ready to go again by Week 5.
