Injury roundup: Pryor misses practice; Te'o ready to go

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor suffered a concussion during Monday's loss to the Denver Broncos, and he couldn't remember much about the game afterward. It's no surprise that he was nowhere to be seen at practice just two days later.

Backup Matt Flynn took first-team reps at practice, according to the Bay Area News Group. 

Wednesday is the biggest day of game-planning during a practice week. Flynn's status as the starter Wednesday makes him the most likely option to play against the struggling Washington Redskins defense.

Coach Dennis Allen said, via the San Francisco Chronicle, that Pryor has been cleared for meetings and physical activity, but not practice yet. Cornerback Tracy Porter, who also suffered a concussion Monday, was practicing.

Here are other injury stories of note Wednesday:

1. San Diego Chargers linebacker Manti Te'o practiced fully for the first time since hurting his foot more than a month ago. He told reporters that he will make his NFL debut Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys.

"I'm ready to go," Te'o said.

2. Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones (knee) officially is out once again this week. Running back Ray Rice returned to practice for the first time since suffering his hip injury, which is a strong indication Rice will suit up in Buffalo on Sunday.

3. Buffalo Bills defensive end Mario Williams (ankle) and Stevie Johnson (hamstring) both missed practice. C.J. Spiller (quad) practiced fully.

4. Reggie Bush returned to practice for the Detroit Lions. It looks like he'll be ready for Sunday against the Bears.

5. Larry Fitzgerald (hamstring) fully practiced Wednesday for the first time in a few weeks.

6. New York Jets starting running back Chris Ivory (hamstring) missed practice. It looks like Bilal Powell will start at running back against the Tennessee Titans.

7. St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Rodger Saffold (knee) is out for "Thursday Night Football" against the San Francisco 49ers.
