Terrelle Pryor cleared for practice

The handling of Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor’s concussion on Monday night has raised some eyebrows, but that hasn’t stopped him from making quick progress through the league’s concussion protocol.

Pryor didn’t practice on Wednesday, but did receive clearance for physical activity. He progressed enough to receive clearance to return to practice on Thursday, albeit in a limited fashion. Scott Bair of CSNBayArea.com reports that Pryor stood on the side without a helmet while watching Matt Flynn take snaps with the first team during the portion of practice that was open to the media.

Pryor will still need to pass one more round of tests to get the green light to take contact, a necessary step for him to get the call on Sunday against Washington. He’s progressing on a track that makes that a real possibility, though, and he’ll likely be on track to start if he is able to do more at practice on Friday.

    He’s so dumb that his baseline is almost impossible not to meet.

    Matt Flynn is thinking “Am I ever going to get one lousy chance to start a game again?”

    I’ve been very critical of Al Davis the last 10 years of his running the Raiders but his legacy really takes a big jump if Terrell Pryor becomes franchise QB for the Raiders.

    I think it’s funny that there are all these concussion lawsuits, new rules, fines for illegal his to the head, controversy over pulling guys out of games sooner, then they get cleared to play 5 days after a concussion. Does this make sense? I’d rather Pryor sit out and get healthy. It’s your brain!

    “I hope he throws for 500 yards”

    He will.. over the next 3-4 games.

    Pryor is so stupid, a concussion might actually make him smarter.

    If he doesn’t play and Flynn manages to have a good game against a bad Redskins team it’s just going to create a QB controversy. That’s the last thing that Raiders need so I really hope he is ok to play Sunday. I don’t want his brains to be scrambled for life but I’d like him to continue on a good path and progress as a young QB.

    Matt Flynn is the poster child for the 1%.

    Run like a running back and get treated like one.

    Especially since Pryor was his last pick. Wouldn’t that be awesome…

    I still think it was a dirty hit and should have been penalized.

    I’m a big TP fan! but Matt Flynn thrives on these kinds of situations. If TP can’t go give Flynn a chance to raise his stock so we can trade him to the Jags for maybe a 4 or 3 rounder.

    What’s with these posters saying Pryor is dumb? The kid has been nothing but smart, learning everything he could since entering the NFL. I have to wonder why someone would call him stupid in spite of the fact that there is no evidence to support that claim.

    If the Raiders put in new plays during practice this week, will TP be able to remember them, come Sunday?

    He threw for 281 against Denver. Considering his experience level and the talent around him, that’s not terrible. People just think he’s stupid because he’s black and doesn’t speak like Bob Griffin.
