Terrelle Pryor will start for the Raiders on Sunday against the Redskins, according to a report late Saturday by the San Francisco Chronicle.
Pryor had been limited in practice late last week as he recovered from a concussion sustained Monday in the Raiders’ loss to the Broncos. He passed all subsequent concussion tests, head coach Dennis Allen told reporters on Friday, but did not want to commit publicly to Pryor or backup Matt Flynn.
In his second year in the league, Pryor beat Flynn out for the starting quarterback job in training camp. He has completed 53 of 81 passes for 624 yards and two touchdowns in three games and has also run 26 times for 198 yards.
