Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor completed 19-of-28 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown before exiting the game late in the fourth quarter with a concussion. Pryor was sandwiched between Bronco defenders Wesley Woodyard and Danny Trevathan on a designed quarterback draw near the goal line with just over six minutes remaining in the contest, a 37-21 loss to Denver. Pryor stayed in for the next two plays before exiting to the locker room. In his postgame press conference, Oakland head coach Dennis Allen refused to speculate on Pryor's availability for Week 4.
The Raiders host the Washington Redskins, the 31st ranked pass defense in the NFL, next weekend. If Pryor can pass all of the necessary concussion tests to be cleared to play, he should have no problem shredding the Redskins porous pass defense. Prior to the injury, the former Ohio State standout enjoyed his best game of the season as a passer. In the event that Pryor is ruled out, backup Matt Flynn will get the nod under center and is worthy of QB2 spot start in all fantasy leagues due to an extremely favorable matchup. Flynn took over against Denver and went 1-for-2 for 19 yards on the Raiders final possession of the game.
