Oakland Raiders QB Terrelle Pryor is ruled out

  • Follow NFL

Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will miss today’s game in Houston because of a sprained right knee.

The Raiders ruled out Pryor on Saturday and announced that Matt McGloin will start against the Texans.

He’s the only other quarterback on the Raiders’ 53-man roster who has worked exclusively with the first-team offense.

Pryor had a setback at practice on Friday and had been listed as questionable. He leads all NFL quarterbacks with 504 yards rushing.

But he wore a thick brace over his knee during last week’s loss to the New York Giants when he was held to a season-low 19 yards on the ground and sacked four times.

DOLPHINS: Barring a last-minute setback, wide receiver Mike Wallace is expected to play in today’s game against the San Diego Chargers.

Wallace has been bothered this week by a hamstring injury and is listed as questionable on Miami’s injury report.

Dolphins center Mike Pouncey, who is listed as questionable because of an illness, also is expected to play.

JAGUARS: Have ruled out linebacker Paul Posluszny for today’s game against Arizona.

Posluszny, who leads the team with 88 tackles, suffered a concussion in last week’s win at Tennessee.

Without him, the Jaguars will move Russell Allen to middle linebacker and likely start rookie John Lotulelei against the Cardinals (5-4).

BEARS: Have elevated defensive end Cheta Ozougwu to the active roster from the practice squad and waived linebacker Larry Grant.

The moves were announced on Saturday.

Ozougwu had been on Chicago’s practice squad since Sept. 24. He appeared in two games for the Bears last season. Grant appeared in two games this season.

The Bears host the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
