All week, much of the talk surrounding the Oakland Raiders has been the status of starting quarterback, Terrelle Pryor. Pryor has been nursing a nagging knee injury, which kept him out of Friday’s practice. He’s been listed as “questionable” all week.
Should Pryor not be able to go on Sunday, the reins of the offense will be turned over to undrafted free agent, Matt McGloin out of Penn State. McGloin earned a spot on the roster in the preseason and has worked his way up to second on the depth chart.
Now, according to Ian Rappaport, all signs so far seem to be pointing toward the former Penn State walk-on making his first career start on Sunday:
No official word from #Raiders, but all signs are pointing to QB Matt McGloin starting. Took almost all 1st team reps. Pryor’s knee ailing

It would be the first start for McGloin, but it wouldn’t be his first bit of professional action. In the loss to the Eagles a few weeks ago, McGloin entered the game and threw for 87 yards.
