Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor is “unlikely” to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins, ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter reported Thursday.

Pryor was knocked out of Monday night’s game against the Denver Broncos with a concussion, in the midst of what was the passing day of his season so far. Pryor passed a concussion test Wednesday that allowed him to return to practice, but he only practiced with the Raiders Thursday on a limited basis. He said Wednesday that it was the first concussion he’s ever suffered.

If Pryor is unable to play, backup quarterback Matt Flynn would get the start.

Pryor was hurt late in Monday night’s loss in Denver when he was knocked out on a helmet-to-helmet hit by Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard on a quarterback draw. The NFL determined that the play was legal, since Pryor was a runner between the tackles.

Pryor has completed 65.7 percent of his passes through three games this season for the 1-2 Raiders. He has two touchdowns and two interceptions. He has also ran for 198 yards on just 26 carries.

Ok Matt, time to put that 6.5 million backup QB salary pay to use.
