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.

    Maybe Lance winds up in Seattle with his buds Carroll and Cable. Or Penn State. Or maybe a maître d at a swank diner.

  • RealTruRaider

    Peterson picks off the rook, might of saved Palmer with that

  • nolimits3333

    USC lost 35 scholarships because of the previous coach. Not Kiffin’s fault.

  • RealTruRaider

    but……but…he just threw a TD

  • nolimits3333

    REDZONE CHANNEL BABY!!!

  • fressssssh

    I’m so truly happy that we get to finally see the magnificent Matt Flynn start. For all the trolls(well there’s like 3 of you) this is your moment to shine, this is your day. Me being the true Raider fan that I am, I honestly hope he does well, that way we will be able to get draft picks in a trade for him(or possibly Pryor depending who they decide is the longer term answer). This should be fun none the less and Flynn couldn’t have asked for a weaker defense to debut against, literally perfect scenario to prove you deserve a shot as a starter in the NFL. Hoping for a good game. Let’s get it.

  • KoolKell

    I sure hope the Flynchmob is correct.

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    How ’bout a pic to get your juices flowing. Especially you old timers.

  • RealTruRaider

    Held on??? lol it was no contest, would of been nice to get in endzone more though but if it wasn’t for DMC fumble after long run they would of only scored what 3 points lol

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johnnie_Lee_Higgins RaiderRockstar

    5 minutes. Go Flynn. Go Raiders!!

  • EMRaiders

    Great decision to make Pryor inactive DA!, and only leave us with McGloin if Flynn goes down.

  • RaidingTexas

    He was showing concussion symptoms yesterday. Not worth risking a more serious injury to him.

  • RealTruRaider

    Hey, DMC is a gunslinger, don’t be surprised if ya see a lot of DMC behind center even if Flynn isn’t hurt

  • ENGLANDRAIDER

    GO RAIDERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Purvisman/Eternal Optimist

    Yea, Alex7. That mike Glennon looks awesome. Troll.

  • Try Some Reality

    I agree. That said, I hate the whiners more and would prefer the seachickens win that division.

  • EMRaiders

    well ok then.

  • Try Some Reality

    No, just hoping the game would a) hurry up and end, and b) Seachickens separate themselves from the whiners.
