Terrelle Pryor will start at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, replacing Matt McGloin for the final regular-season game.

Coach Dennis Allen made the announcement at the end of his press conference Monday, saying it was ''part of the plan'' that apparently took shape when Pryor recovered from an injury to his right knee in late November.

The recent performances of McGloin were also a factor. In the past two games alone, the undrafted rookie quarterback threw six interceptions and lost two fumbles.

Oakland went 3-5 in the eight games Pryor started before getting hurt. He has made only a few cameo appearances since then but did not play in Sunday's 26-13 loss to San Diego.
