Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor will miss Sunday's game in Houston because of a sprained right knee.

The Raiders ruled out Pryor (Jeannette) on Saturday and announced that undrafted rookie free agent Matt McGloin (Penn State) will start against the Texans.

Pryor had a setback at practice 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 24-20 loss to the Giants when he was held to a season-low 19 yards on the ground and sacked four times.

McGloin was 7 for 15 for 87 yards in relief of Pryor against the Eagles in Week 9 in his first game action of his career. He will be the 17th quarterback to start for Oakland since the start of the 2003 season.

The Raiders also promoted rookie Tyler Wilson from the practice squad to back up McGloin.

Wallace, Pouncey will play

Dolphins wide receiver Mike Wallace and center Mike Pouncey are expected to play Sunday against the Chargers, ESPN.com reported.

Both players are listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Wallace is dealing with a hamstring injury. He was limited in practice Friday. He is second on the team with 40 catches for 495 yards and a touchdown.

Pouncey was not on the practice field Friday during the session the media was able to watch because of an illness.

Posluszny out with concussion

Jaguars middle linebacker Paul Posluszny (Penn State) will not play Sunday against the Cardinals due to a concussion.

Posluszny was listed as questionable on the team's injury report Friday. He was injured in the fourth quarter of last Sunday's win over the Titans.

The team ruled him out because he did not pass concussion tests.

Posluszny has a team-high 88 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.
