Oakland Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor returned to practice Thursday after being held out Wednesday with a sprained medial collateral ligament

Pryor wound up splitting the first-team snaps with rookie backup Matt McGoin.

Should Pryor be able to practice again Friday, he should be able to start Sunday against the Houston Texans.

Pryor has been playing through the injury, but acknowledged this week that it's been bothering him a lot.
