ALAMEDA -- Terrelle Pryor was officially listed as questionable Friday, but he did less in practice than the previous day and the Raiders were preparing for Matt McGloin to start against the Houston Texans.

Raiders coach Dennis Allen said McGloin took all the first team reps and was confident the undrafted rookie out of Penn State would deliver if called upon.

"He's kind of got that `it' factor you look for in a quarterback,'' Allen said.

Meanwhile, right tackle Tony Pashos missed practice with an illness but is sufficiently recovered from a hip injury that he is listed as probable to face the Texans Sunday at Reliant Stadium.

Listed as out and not making the trip were safety Tyvon Branch, wide receiver Juron Criner and cornerback DJ Hayden. Tackle Matt McCants and linebacker Kaluaka Maiava were questionable along with Pryor. Place kicker Sebastian Janikowski is probable.
