Quarterback Terrelle Pryor is not at practice today, though cornerback Tracy Porter is back on the field less than 48 hours after he and Pryor suffered concussions.
Matt Flynn is taking the reps with the first-team offense today, and he is in line to make his first start for the Raiders unless Pryor is cleared by team doctors before Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins.
For Porter to be back on the field, it means he passed the league-mandated test that allows players to be at practice, though without contact, or he passed the test that allows players to resume activities without restriction.
Either way, the fact Porter is on the field today and Pryor isn’t says that Pryor suffered a more severe concussion.
– Defensive end Jason Hunter is not at practice, either. He was not mentioned by coach Dennis Allen as being injured during the Denver Broncos game Monday night.
Hunter is on the practice field, but he isn’t taking part in drills.
– Linebacker Sio Moore is at practice. He didn’t play against the Broncos as a result of a concussion he suffered in a car accident the day the Raiders flew to Denver.
– Andre Gurode is working at left guard, even though Lucas Nix is healthy enough to practice.
Nix started the first two games before he suffered an ankle injury. Gurode started against the Broncos.
