Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor has been ruled out of Sunday’s game versus the Houston Texans with knee injury that he’s been dealing with for the past month. Head Coach Dennis Allen acknowledged that Pryor encountered a setback on Friday after sharing reps with rookie Matt McGloin in Thursday’s practice. Pryor leads the team in rushing with 68 carries for 504 yards and two touchdowns. He’s kept the Raiders respectable to say the least.

Although Allen was still is holding out hope, he now appears ready to hand the starting job to McGloin, who will be making his first NFL start.

The Seattle Seahawks will not only have wide receiver Percy Harvin make his 2013 NFL debut today against the Minnesota Vikings, but they could also get Pro Bowl left tackle Russell Okung back. Okung”s return could drastically change that, as he was playing like one of the best tackles in the game but has been out since getting a toe injury in Week 2, and it now looks like he’s ready to come off the short-term I.R. and play today:

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be without starting middle linebacker Paul Poslusney today after he was unable to practice this week due to the lingering effects of a concussion he suffered. He is the team’s best defensive player and responsible for three of the defense’s 12 turnovers. He has a team-high 88 tackles, two interceptions, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery.
