Though it was thought Thursday that Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor, recovering from a concussion suffered in Week 3, was unlikely to play this weekend, coach Dennis Allen gave some hope that Pryor actually might take the field vs. the Redskins.

Allen told reporters Friday afternoon that Pryor had passed all league-mandated concussion tests and that no other testing was required. But just for peace of mind, the team will give Pryor one more test Saturday. If Pryor passes that medical hurdle, he could play Sunday.

“We want to do the right thing for this kid,” Allen said.

If the team still isn't comfortable with Pryor's health, it likely would play Matt Flynn at quarterback instead.

As for Pryor's thoughts?

Though Pryor didn't remember much of last week's game, he also announced on Twitter this week that he was feeling much better.

The NFLPA, though, began investigating the team's concussion protocol after Pryor was allowed to return to the field for two plays after suffering the head injury.

"Looked like I was functioning; I watched the tape," Pryor said this week. "I could definitely see why they didn't see [the concussion] ... I was talking to them so I was fine because they were asking me [questions]. Definitely a delayed reaction."
