Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was back on the practice field Friday, opening the door for him to stay in the starting lineup after a late concussion Monday night.
According to Steve Corkran of the Bay Area News Group, Pryor was taking part in a significant portion of the part of practice open to the media Friday, though it was later declared a “limited” portion.
Coach Dennis Allen said he wouldn’t make any announcements until Sunday, which will keep the Redskins guessing a bit longer. But he said Pryor made “significant progress,” this week, and would be listed as questionable.
Pryor sad Wednesday he thought he could play without a full week of practice, though he acknowledged the inherent problem and the obvious all at the same time.
“I’m not Peyton [Manning],” Pryor said. “I do need experience. It’s definitely what I lack. I need experience. I need more time with my guys. That’s what I’ve lacked this whole season, starting from the first game.”
Being cleared for contact is a huge step, but the Raiders have to decide whether it’s worth it playing a guy who had little prep time.
