We reported last night that Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been cleared and will start against the Redskins.
It looks like things have changed.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, even though Pryor has been cleared, Matt Flynn will start.

It sounds like the Raiders are still looking to be cautious with Flynn. You have to imagine that if he plays poorly, Pryor will come in off the bench.
