ALAMEDA — Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday, three days after being knocked out with a concussion, and his status for Sunday's game remains in question.
Pryor passed a concussion test Wednesday that allowed him to return to practice but he still must be cleared for contact before the Raiders (1-2) decide whether to play him Sunday against Washington (0-3).
"There's still some hurdles that he has to clear but he was cleared to go ahead and non-contact practice," coach Dennis Allen said. "He was able to get in there and practice some on a limited basis today."
During the part of practice open to the media, Pryor did conditioning without a helmet and watched backups Matt Flynn and Matt McGloin run practice. But Allen said that Pryor put the helmet on later and got some plays in with his teammates.
Allen said he'd like to know as soon as possible about Pryor's status and that he won't speculate about whether Pryor will play until doctors clear him for contact.
