As first posted in the PREMIUM forum of RaiderFans.net, a source close to RaiderFans.net has confirmed that Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will be the starter against the Washington Redskins.
Pryor sustained a concussion last Monday late in the game against the Denver Broncos but returned to practice later this week. Matt Flynn was believed to be the starter until speculation arose after Pryor was cleared after the league-mandated tests, though the Raiders weren't ready to name him the starter.
The fourth-year quarterback from Ohio State University has used his athleticism to provide a spark to an Oakland Raiders offense that saw adversity early with injuries.
Pryor has thrown for 624 yards, two touchdowns and two interception on 65.4 percent throwing while adding 198 rushing yards on 26 carries.
