Terrelle Pryor injury: Raiders QB needs to be non-symptomatic to play

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Oakland's quarterback will not return until he's free of post-concussion symptoms.

Terrelle Pryor was unable to play Sunday as he recovered from a concussion and the Oakland Raiders' quarterback will continue to be held out until he stops having post-concussion symptoms, according to Paul Gutierrez.

Pryor was on the Raiders' sideline in yesterday's loss to the Washington Redskins, but the third-year quarterback wore sunglasses throughout the day as it was reported he was suffering from light sensitivity.

Matt Flynn started in Pryor's absence and played well, but the offense lacked Pryor's running ability -- which the Raiders' needed as Darren McFadden left the game due to injury. Flynn finished with 227 yards as well as one touchdown and an interception.

In addition to Pryor's injury the Raiders got some good news as it was announced that Pro Bowl fullback Marcel Reece did not suffer a serious knee injury in the loss, as Gutierrez reported an MRI conducted returned negative.

Oakland next face San Diego on 10/6.
