It’s official: Pryor inactive

Terrelle Pryor was declared inactive Sunday six days after sustaining a concussion against the Denver Broncos.

The announcement ended a week of speculation about whether Pryor would be cleared medically and resume his role as the starting quarterback, or if Matt Flynn would start against the Washington Redskins.

Pryor was cleared to play against Washington Friday, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said. But the Raiders coach also said he wanted Pryor to pass one more team-mandated test.

According to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, Pryor began to experience some concussion systems Saturday night, with Allen then opting for Flynn against Washington.

Other inactives were safety Tyvon Branch, tackle Menelik WAtson, guard Antoine McClain, guard Lucas Nix, wide receiver Juron Criner and defensive end Jason Hunter.

    It’s funny I just picked up Powell, I should have started him. Seems like MJD is going to have a year like DMAC had last year post lisfranc.

    Actually…I thought Kiffin wanted Quinn?

  • RealTruRaider

    I just think the most negative voices are relentless and they are non stop, don’t think we are as divided as it seems on here

    Same Pryor debates on SandBPride.

    Payton Manning works at Papa Murphy’s? He must be hurtin to have to moonlight a second job. SMH

  • RealTruRaider

    Same people, maybe not the same from here but certain few there (same as here) just never let up

  • PlunkforHOF

    Alright Matty Flynn.. Its your day. Show us you can do it. Light it up. You are the QB of the Raider Nation.
    CODE BLACK!

    I just find it so unfortunate. I’m for everyone who’s a Raider. Sure, I have preferences but I don’t hate anyone on the Raiders. I have a bigger problem with people in general over anything Raiders.

  • Raideraholic

    Is DMAC going to run into the back of people today or is he going to break some nice runs for us?

  • Back-N-Black

    Alright guys… we all need to grill some Quinos

  • seymour bush

    USC fired Lane Kiffin. Looks like Al was right. See you all in the Coliseum.

  • Back-N-Black

    lol… couldn’t happen to a nicer guy

  • Raideraholic

    Sad thing is that that smooth talking snake in the grass will find another decent job.

  • RealTruRaider

    Depends on the Oline really, if they get blown up like last week he won’t have a chance

    Owner Mark Davis came over and ribbed me pretty good about last night’s story, saying he was all excited to see Terrelle Pryor play.

  • JOn Wooah

    We know what team MARK DAVIS is on now, dont we??? This is nice to know!!!

  • RealTruRaider

    Nah, he is heading to CFL or some low level OC job

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Levi booted Terrell R the other day.

  • raider_39

    hey believe it or not, even Bellychick has his haters…so

    there is a failed class-clown in any household looking for attention, let alone an NFL team fan-base

  • alex7

    it’s ok to be divided about something as important as the starting QB. In today’s pass-happy NFL, it’s easily the most important position and we’re not going to win until we get a legit QB.

    Look at the Bills now that they’ve found one. Instant franchise turnaround.

    @VicTafur pryor was going to start. i’m told medical staff made decision to hold him out at around 9 last night, after examination.

  • RaidingTexas

    Throwing picks like he always does.

  • JOn Wooah

    Confirmed yet again by SI journalist. DA didnt even want FLYNN to start LOL.. WOW.. he was gonna roll PRYOR out there on 5 days rest really

  • 24

    True story!

  • RealTruRaider

    lol, yeah I know that fool, I see him on Twitter to, its just comedy to me at this point with him

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    “I have a bigger problem with people in general over anything Raiders.”

    There’s someting I really like about this line.

  • stormbringerSS

    ” I FEEL GOOD I KNEW THAT I WOULD” —– FLYNN STARTS !

  • Raidersfan727

    Arizona was in the playoffs a few years ago too, and also the superbowl prior to that. A lot of teams undergo radical changes over short periods of time. Only a few teams are always good (New England) and a few always bad (Oakland)

  • alex7

    Great OC, great recruiter. 10 scholarships per season hurt, and you can see the lack of depth and play-makers on D.

    He’ll be an OC at a big school after his upcoming 2-year paid vacation.

  • JOn Wooah

    Mcgloin might play in this game… especially if ppl start booin. Time will tell. FLYNn needs to take this team down on the first drive and score a TOUCHDOWN

  • fressssssh

    Well since it was Pryor’s fault that we didn’t “light up the Jaguars” we should do great through the air today right? Let me do it the way you and the other trolls have the past few weeks.

    Redskins worst defense in NFL history so far so Flynn should have about 300+ Yards Passing and atleast 3 TDs. Sound about right?

  • RaidingTexas

    That should dispel the myth that he is keeping him out because Flynn is his boy.

  • alex7

    no, he needs to score more than 7 points in 44 minutes to outperform our last game’s QB.

    And he needs to do better than 1 TD and 2 INTs to outperform Pryor’s debut.

  • Raideraholic

    Is it sad that I felt better going into the Denver game?

  • RealTruRaider

    USC is loaded with talent, he just ain’t a good coach, maybe better suited for OC

  • alex7

    we’re almost always the less-talented team, so you’re simply off the kool-aid now :)

    T. PRYOR is a straight LEADER man.. thats why the team responds to him. Thats why CWOODSON said it would be bad if PRYOR couldnt start. LEADER

  • JOn Wooah

    DA didnt want anything to do with starting FLYNn today. PRYOR was gonna start. Thats good to know .. also good to hear MARK davis is in PRYOR’s corner. NICE!!!!! enjoy the game gents.

    FLynn needs a TD on the opening drive

  • RealTruRaider

    Is it Pick Six Palmer Time???

  • R8derdiehard

    Raiiiiidddddeeerrrsss……… Raaaaiiiiiiiddddddeeeeeerrrrrrrssss…..rrraaaaiiiiiiiidddddddeeeerrrrs!!!!

    Flynn or not it dont matter now lets get the win. Win or lose i love raider football

    InsideUSC @InsideUSC
    To recap, Lane Kiffin pulled of team bus outside LAX private terminal and fired. Team went back to #USC without him

    I am not a fan of Kiffin but that’s just dirty.
    They could have done it a little more professional than that.

  • RaidingTexas

    There’s probably more to that story. He may have done something to get that treatment.

    Anyway, for all we know, they gave him cab fare.

  • RealTruRaider

    I’m sure there was a reason, Kiffen obviously isn’t the easiest to get along with

  • RaidingTexas

    Nope. Just another Palmer stalled drive.

  • raider_39

    try to tell that to the kids, boosters etc at TENN…again lol. lemme guess, you are not a Volunteers fan, right ?

  • Morilla_00

    Entitled little pr:ck. He thinks he is the cats meow because of his daddy. You know he did or said something to deserve that treatment.

  • stormbringerSS

    PRYOR is a straight LOSER 1-3

  • The Big Banana

    Palmer 19-36 with 2 INTs, yet some in here just can’t stop obsessing over him. SMH
