Redskins Prep For Two Raiders QBs With Pryor Uncertain
ALAMEDA, Calif. (CBSDC/AP) — It is unclear whether Terrelle Pryor or Matt Flynn will quarterback the Oakland Raiders Sunday against the Washington Redskins.
Pryor is not practicing for the Raiders two days after suffering a concussion late in a loss to the Denver Broncos.
Backup Flynn worked with the first-team offense in practice Wednesday as the Raiders (1-2) prepared to play the winless Redskins (0-3).
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said Wednesday the team is preparing to face either quarterback.
“You have to account for both of them, because you don’t know for sure. Two different type of game plans,” said Shanahan. “I guess when you take a look at Pryor we know the threat he is in the running game. You have to be ready for that. Other quarterbacks can run it, but not to the degree he can.”
Pryor is not able to practice or attend meetings until he is cleared by doctors. He got hurt late in Monday night’s loss in Denver when he was knocked out on a helmet-to-helmet hit by Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard while running a quarterback draw. The play was determined to be legal because Pryor was a runner between the tackles.
Pryor remained in for two plays before being taken to the locker room by doctors.
