According to reports, Raiders starting quarterback Terrelle Pryor appears to have returned to the practice field Thursday. Pryor had been sitting out in an attempt to rest his sprained MCL in his right knee.
According to Scott Bair of Comcast Sports Net, Pryor is sharing first-team reps with undrafted rookie Matt McGloin to start today's practice.
Pryor back at practice. Looks like Pryor and McGloin and splitting first team reps, in this team drill anyway. #raiders

With Pryor having missed practice yesterday, it looked as if McGloin would get his chance under center against the Texans on Sunday. The opportunity would be his first-career NFL start.
Pryor suffered the injury late in the blowout loss to the Eagles and was largely ineffective against the Giants last week with the lack of speed and athleticism.
Could Pryor be on his way back to returning under center for Sunday's game, or are the Raiders just trying to gain the competitive advantage against the Texans? Answers will come soon, whether it's from coach after practice or from the final injury report that is released on Friday.
