Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice Thursday, but he's fighting a losing battle to gain clearance from his concussion in time for Sunday's game versus the Washington Redskins.
"There's still some hurdles that he has to clear but he was cleared to go ahead and non-contact practice," Raiders coach Dennis Allen told reporters Thursday, via ESPN.com. "He was able to get in there and practice some on a limited basis today."
Pryor has been one of the NFL's early-season surprises, lending respectability to the Raiders' offense even in the team's two losses.
If Flynn gets the start, it's welcome news for the Redskins' overmatched defense.
