In a last-minute change of plans, Matt Flynn will start today at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders rather than Terrelle Pryor.
Pryor, who suffered a concussion Monday night in a loss to the Denver Broncos, had passed concussion tests but suffered a relapse Saturday night, according to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer.
There have been questions about how the Raiders initially handled the concussion and Pryor tweeted that he didn’t remember much of the game, then retreated from that stance, saying he was fine. Pryor’s situation shows just how tricky the treatment of concussions can be.
“I watched the tape,” he said late last week. “I could definitely see why they didn’t see [the concussion] … I was talking to them so I was fine because they were asking me [questions]. Definitely a delayed reaction.”
