The Oakland Raiders aren't expected to rush quarterback Terrelle Pryor. He will likely miss Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins while he continues to recover from a concussion sustained on Monday Night Football.
Matt Flynn took first team snaps this week while Pryor underwent the league's post-concussion protocol, which cleared him for practice on Thursday. Flynn attempted two passes in relief on Monday, completing one pass for 19 yards.
Pryor has been an unexpected bright spot for the Raiders this year, completing 65-percent of his passes and posting a quarterback rating of 86.7 in his two starts.
The New England Patriots have listed their star tight end as "limited" in this week's practice, but according to sources the organization isn't optimistic Gronkowski will play Sunday.
Gronkowski missed the first three games of the regular season in addition to the Patriots' off-season program. The New England offense has struggled without him, sitting in the middle of the pack in both yards per game and points scored, despite the team's 3-0 start.
The relationship between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and quarterback Josh Freeman is strained, and it's believed the team will try to trade the veteran quarterback. Rookie Mike Glennon was named starter this week, adding fuel to the rumor fire that Freeman and the Buccaneers could part ways.
Minnesota has gotten uneven quarterback play from Christian Ponder. The third-year quarterback has thrown five interceptions in three games and has been unable to move the ball down field.
