ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Raiders expect to have starting right tackle Tony Pashos back for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
Pashos missed four of the last five games with a hip flexor and has been limited in practice this week while splitting reps with rookie Menelik Watson. Coach Dennis Allen, however, hinted that Pashos likely will start and Pashos later confirmed it.
Oakland's offensive line has been banged up since training camp when starting left tackle Jared Veldheer suffered a torn triceps and was placed on the designated to return/injured reserve list. Veldheer practiced this week for the first time since then but has yet to be activated to the 53-man roster.
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor was also back at practice after sitting out Wednesday to rest his sore knee.
