UPDATE: Hopefully, this will be the final update on this situation, but apparently Pryor showed some concussion symptoms last night and will be inactive Sunday. Flynn will make his first start for the Raiders today. Read below about how he might fare for the Raiders and fantasy owners.
One of the important factors this week is how practice has gone. As Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez said, Pryor took just a few reps this Thursday and is considerably behind Matt Flynn in the offensive implementation for Washington.
"The main thing is just preparing. Matt definitely has a lot more reps than me this week," Pryor said. "I still don't know what the [situation's] going to be, but I'm still going to study these next couple days real hard as though I will be starting."
The lack of reps doesn't mean he won't play but it does give us a sense of where the two are at. Pryor's shown he can be dynamic and sharp enough to play well in the offense, even on the fly. The Raiders are keeping the information at bay for competitive reasons. Read more below for what the Raiders' Sunday might look like with Flynn at the helm.
