Terrelle Pryor passes concussion test, but Matt Flynn to start

Matt Flynn, not Terrelle Pryor, will be the Raiders' starting quarterback Sunday when they face the Redskins, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reported on The NFL Today.

Pryor, who suffered a concussion in Monday night's loss to the Broncos, had passed his concussion protocol and was set to start. But according to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, Pryor started showing signs of concussion Saturday night, and the team erred on the side of caution.

Pryor has played well for Oakland this season, and against the Broncos he completed 19 of 28 passes for 281 yards, including a touchdown, before a shot from Denver linebacker Wesley Woodyard sent him to the sidelines. Pryor admitted that he didn't remember much from the game.

On Tuesday, Pryor sent a series of tweets on his condition:

Matt Flynn took most of the first-team reps this week, and now he'll make his first start of the season.

The Redskins are favored by 3.5 on the road, and five of eight CBSSports.com experts have Washington winning. We're not one of those people for two reasons: 1) The 'Skins' defense is awful, and 2) Flynn lit up a Lions' D two seasons ago that was nowhere near as bad as the one Washington puts on the field every week.
