Raiders rule Pryor out vs. Texans

The SportsXchange

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Houston Texans due to a knee injury.

Coach Dennis Allen said Friday that Pryor had a setback Friday and the team officially ruled him out Saturday. Rookie Matt McGloin will make his first NFL start.

Pryor was injured during the Raiders' 24-20 loss to the New York Giants last Sunday.

McGloin completed seven of 15 passes for 87 yards for a 65.1 passer rating against the Philadelphia Eagles two weeks ago in his only action this season.

The Raiders promoted rookie quarterback Tyler Wilson from their practice squad. To make room for Wilson, the Raiders waived reserve defensive tackle Brian Sanford.

Wilson, the Raiders' fourth-round draft pick out of Arkansas earlier this year, will back up McGloin. Wilson completed 11 of 18 passes for 93 yards in the preseason.
