Last year Matt Flynn entered training camp with a shot at the starting job only to lose it to a quarterback who outplayed him in the preseason by making plays with both his arm and his legs while Flynn struggled with an elbow injury.

History may be repeating itself. Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reports that Raiders coach Dennis Allen said Sunday that the team will be resting Flynn because of elbow tendonitis and that Terrelle Pryor will start the team’s preseason finale against the Seahawks.
