ALAMEDA -- Dennis Allen announced on Friday that Terrelle Pryor has been medically cleared for full contact, which puts him in solid position to play and possibly start on Sunday against Washington.

He is officially listed as questionable on the team's injury report, but his activity level increased from Thursday's practice to Friday's workout.

The Raiders will evaluate Pryor one more time before Sunday's game, but it is not a mandatory evaluation.

"It's not something we have to do, it's something we want to do," Allen said. "We want to do right by this kid."

The Raiders will not announce their starting quarterback before Sunday's game, partially for competitive reasons. If the Raiders decide Pryor cannot go, the team will start Matt Flynn in his place.
