The Raiders are exercising prudence with quarterback Terrelle Pryor.
Though Pryor has been “cleared medically” after suffering a concussion Monday night at Denver and practiced on a limited basis on Friday, the club will examine him again on Saturday morning, Raiders head coach Dennis Allen said.
Pryor, who has started the first three games for Oakland, is listed as questionable for Sunday’s matchup with Washington.
Allen called the additional examination “a precautionary step” due to Pryor’s increased on-field activity on Friday, according to a transcript of the coach’s Friday press conference from the club.
“We want to get one more evaluation on him tomorrow to see how he responded,” Allen said. “But, he’s making a lot of progress.”
According to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune, Pryor said he doesn’t mind taking another test.
“That just shows they take care of their players. I feel great, I feel fine,” Pryor said Friday, according to the Tribune.
