Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor looks like a toss-up call for Week 4 against the Washington Redskins, and he has a very favorable matchup in store against the Redskins defense. The Redskins not only have a porous secondary, but they are also missing tackles at a ridiculously high rate. Pryor’s rushing ability would cause huge problems for those guys, and his arm strength on vertical throws to Rod Streater and Denarius Moore would also present significant matchup problems for the Redskins pass defense.
According to the NFL Network’s Gregg Rosenthal, Terrelle Pryor has been listed questionable after practicing on a limited basis, and Raiders head coach Dennis Allen stated that Pryor has made “significant progress” since he suffered the concussion on Monday. Pryor has only one more concussion test that he needs to pass in order to get clearance for Sunday’s game against Washington, but there is an outside chance that the Oakland Raiders hold out their possible franchise QB as a precaution. But, then again, Pryor is so good that holding him out might not be the best idea for the Raiders; it’s a tough decision.
Adam Schefter reported yesterday that it is unlikely for Terrelle Pryor to play on Sunday, and that would leave Matt Flynn as the starter, which is a downgrade for the Raiders offense. Keep a close eye on further updates regarding Pryor, because this looks like a total game-time decision for the Raiders.
