It was a strange scene in the Raiders' locker room Wednesday as TV cameras crowded around not one but two quarterbacks. Starter Terrelle Pryor surprised team officials when he decided to talk to reporters despite not being cleared for practice because of a concussion.

This was just minutes after backup Matt Flynn who might start Sunday spoke for the first time about losing his starting job to Pryor.

Other players in the locker room got a good chuckle out of the paparazzi-like scene even if they don't know who will start at quarterback Sunday against the Redskins.

Pryor said he is feeling "great" and was on his way Wednesday afternoon to take the latest concussion test to see if he can practice Thursday.

There are different levels to the NFL's concussion protocol and Pryor has been cleared for physical activity such as riding a bike and attending meetings. The next step is to be cleared for practice as was cornerback Tracy Porter who was back on the field Wednesday following his concussion Monday night.

The last step is being cleared for contact.

Pryor said he remembered the hit by Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard shortly after tweeting that he didn't on Tuesday morning. "I was a little foggy in the morning when I tweeted that" Pryor said. "I feel fine now."

Pryor said he had not had a concussion before and is told that this is a mild one.

With Pryor out Wednesday Flynn took the reps with the first-team offense and Raiders head coach Dennis Allen has to proceed as if Flynn will start against the Redskins.

"I will do everything I can to get ready and we'll see what happens" Flynn said. "No one knows" about Pryor's recovery time.

Flynn lost his starting job to Pryor after a terrible third preseason game against Chicago in which he had two interceptions in six passes and a fumble.

"I was disappointed" Flynn said. "I prepared the best I could and things didn't work out. I can promise you it hasn't shaken my confidence. I still believe I can be a pretty good player.
