Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was medically cleared to play Sunday against the Washington Redskins, but his status is still uncertain.
Pryor sustained a concussion on Monday night against the Denver Broncos, but cleared the league's concussion protocol and cleared for full contact Friday.
Coach Dennis Allen said Friday the team wants Pryor to pass one more test before it determines if he can play. If Pryor passes the test, he will play, but Allen did not say if he will start.
"We haven't made that decision," Allen said. "The biggest thing is, I like where (Pryor is) at. I like where he's at mentally. Medically, we're going to continue to evaluate him. He's cleared medically. We want to get one more evaluation on him tomorrow to see how he responded. But, he's making a lot of progress."
Pryor practiced on a limited basis Friday and is listed on the team's injury report as questionable. Allen said the team will reevaluate Pryor on Saturday, and he'll be available as a backup even if Matt Flynn starts.
"I don't know if that would be a game-time decision or not," Allen said. "The key is that both him and Matt Flynn have both prepared this week to start. I'm going to make the right decision based on his health and make sure we do the right thing for him."
Allen clarified that Pryor has passed all NFL-mandated tests/
"It's not something that has to be done. It's something that we want to do. I want to make sure that we're making the right decision for this kid," Allen said, while adding part of the reason for not yet naming a starter is for competitive reasons.
-- DE Jason Hunter did not practice Friday with a quadriceps injury and could miss the Washington game, with Brian Sanford starting in the base defense and Jack Crawford also getting increased snaps. Hunter is questionable on the injury report, and Allen called him a game-time decision.
"There is still a lot of improvement that he needs to make," Allen said of Crawford. "We feel like we feel good with some of the guys that we have. We feel good with Brian Sanford going in there. He's probably a little bit ahead of Jack. It would be a great opportunity for Jack, if Jason is not able to go, to get in and play and do some good things."
-- LB Sio Moore was back to full practice Friday following and is probable.
-- CB Tracy Porter (concussion) returned to full practice Friday and is listed as probable.
-- SS Tyvon Branch did not practice with an ankle injury and won't play against Washington.
-- LT Menelik Watson did not practice and will not play against Washington as he rehabs from arthroscopic knee surgery. Allen said he is hopeful Watson can practice next week.
-- FB Jamize Olawale participated fully in practice and will be available as a backup and on special teams against Washington.
