Oakland, CA, United States (4E Sports) – Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been medically cleared to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins after suffering a concussion in 37-21 loss to the Denver Broncos Monday.
While passed his final concussion protocol exam Friday morning, the team wants him to pass one more test Saturday before making a decision on his availability.
Pryor was unaware of the test but says it’s wonderful that the Raiders are looking out for his safety.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen said if Pryor passes the non-NFL mandated test, he will play Sunday. However, Allen would not say whether Pryor would start.
“The key is that both him and Matt Flynn have both prepared this week to start. I’m going to make the right decision based on [Pryor's] health. … I want to make sure we’re making the right decision for this kid,” said Allen.
“I feel 100 percent, definitely. The main thing is just preparing,” said Pryor. “I believe in my ability, and I always think I’m the best player on the field.”
Pryor took only a few reps Thursday and is significantly behind in the offensive installation for Washington.
