Raiders, Vikings make Week 12 QB decisions

Stay put, Matt: When the Raiders said they weren’t committed to Terrelle Pryor, they weren’t kidding. Pryor has been dealing with knee issues, but he’s practicing again as of today … except it’s with the second unit. Matt McGloin has been named Oakland’s starter against Tennessee. The undrafted rookie ambushed the Texans by throwing three scores and no picks.

Mayock: Ponder continues to rise up boards

The lockout is having an impact on school’s pro days.
