Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor probably played his best game of the regular season Monday night before a hit to the head by the Denver Broncos forced him to leave Oakland’s 37-21 loss early. Pryor was eventually diagnosed with a concussion. After the game, Raiders coach Dennis Allen said he would not speculate about whether Pryor will be able to play Sunday at home against the Washington Redskins.

If Pryor is unable to play, it would be a huge blow to the Raiders. Pryor showed his overall ability Monday night throwing for 281 yards and a touchdown. He ran for only 36 yards compared to the totals he racked up in previous games. If Pryor is unable to play, QB Matt Flynn will take over. Flynn led a late touchdown drive that was capped by Darren McFadden running it in from one yard out.
