Jason Campbell has a wrist injury too

The “stinger” that knocked Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell from Saturday’s game against the 49ers wasn’t even the most serious injury he suffered.

Raiders coach Tom Cable revealed that he’s more worried about an injury to Campbell’s wrist that required an x-ray and MRI.  ESPN’s Bill Williamson said Campbell will “surely be rested” all this week and wondered if he’d be back for the season opener.

Campbell’s likely absence from practice will make it important for Cable to pick a backup quarterback between Bruce Gradkowski and Kyle Boller; it figures to be Gradkowski.

In other Raiders offense injury news, starting wideout Chaz Shilens will be out another 2-5 weeks after undergoing knee surgery.  He looks likely to miss a regular season or two.  Starting running back Michael Bush will undergo surgery on his thumb, but could still play in the opener against Tennessee.

    Who cares… I guess no one does. Gradkowski is the better choice anyway.

    Opposing QB’s beware… We will cream quite a few this year…

    You just aren’t very good at your job, Gregg.

    That must be some serious knee surgery.

    Kyle Boller is NOT a good qb! I don’t think you can even call him a qb.

    Being a Niners fan, I must say Campbell looked flat out there. He had a couple narrow sack escapes turn into decent shuttle passes, and a few passes that were WIDE WIDE open receivers. Then he looked piss poor. Gradkowski looked really composed and passed accurately. Personally I would rather them have Campbell when they play in the regular season, but Gradkowski SHOULD be their starter

    Actually as injury prone as Chaz is Gregg might be right

    Jason Campbell is severely underrated.

  10. rraider says: Aug 30, 2010 12:07 AM

    Does he need Tommy john surgey? ” A season or two..”

    youngtorice.. yes.. Campbell looked so terribly ineffective as he shoved the ball down your first string defenses throat on the first possession of the game… idiot.

    As a Chargers fan, Gradkowski scares me more than Campbell.

    Idiots! Campbell drove right down the field and led the Raiders to a TD on the opening drive against the “so called best Defense”! Not to mention the 49er D blitzed almost everydown all game……IN THE PRE SEASON!!!! Campbell or Gradkowski, no matter, the Raiders will be much improved this year! Raider Nation is back!

  14. raideralex99 says: Aug 30, 2010 12:35 AM

    Yes … go Gradkowski go.

  15. raidersteve413 says: Aug 30, 2010 12:43 AM

    this is A blessing for the raiders, Bruce is the future, bruce is the greatest qb in history……
    you will see, the most exciting qb since vick in his prime

    I heard a lot of chirping from Raider Nation that A.Smith was going down! No sacks against a real Oline and A.Smith with 105 qb rating. Funny how things end up..Campbell taking a ride out of the game. Niners need to shore up that pass d tho…

  17. PhD says: Aug 30, 2010 3:24 AM

    Raider nation is back all right. Back with their typical line of BS. I just watched the 49ers game on the NFL Network and they have the nerve to claim, with a straight face, that Jerry Rice is yet another Oakland Faider that made it into the HOF! LOL, that’s hilarious. Yes Jerry had his HOF career in silver and black. They had a segment about how great their fans are. Note: The game was blacked out locally because of all that great fan support! On one play when a 49er running back tripped on his own man, they were going on about the great tackle! LOL Of course none of this surprises me. The announcing crew are all old Al Davis cronies. Plunkett, Flores, and other assorted butt kissing Davis yes men. What complete morons!

    Gradkowski is better. Campbell may have all the physical tools, but he’s just not any good.

  19. Raiderfankirk says: Aug 30, 2010 6:16 AM

    Bruce Almighty is the man anyway.If Watkins holds on to the ball Oakland would have pulled the game off.

  20. brasho says: Aug 30, 2010 6:42 AM

    He looks likely to miss a regular season or two.

    Move over Seabass, there’s a new Polish Cannon on the team!
    The team as a whole looked so much more energized when Gradkowski took the field. It’s a shame he’ll only see spot duty or play when Campbell goes down.
    If you watched the game, the wrist injury occured before the stinger and Campbell came back in with the “injured” wrist. If he can continue to play in a preseason game with the bad wrist, there is no question he’ll be ready for the Tennessee game in Week 1.

    Speaking of Seabass, how about that 57 yard FG from the dirt, at 2nd base?

  24. raidertg says: Aug 30, 2010 10:48 AM

    I love the Whinner fans acting like Campbell looked flat. Did you not see the opening drive. And Alex Smith looked great? What game did you watch he was the QB that was flat! They only reason they won was because of the Run and special teams play the rest of your O and D did not look good. And we won’t even get started and the fake ass penalty against Nnamdi on 4th down or that “touchdown” in the forth. Give me a break!!!!

  25. 1NationRaiderNation says: Aug 30, 2010 11:40 AM

    gotta love the niners fans. lets just hope these are the two teams that show up, because it is pretty obvious what the score would be.
    Whats with the refs, and the pass interference call, and the unnecessary roughness call on henderson…..i can take one bad call like henderson, but to say nnadmi had pass interefernce two yards off the line of scrimmage on a 4th down play was a pathetic call, and really showed the IQ of singletary.

  26. FastEddy415 says: Aug 30, 2010 4:17 PM

    Gotta love Raider Nation – couldnt even pull out the win with Gore getting only 2 carries for 59 yards, no crabtree, no davis…

  27. AlDavisIsGod says: Aug 31, 2010 12:04 AM

    tango you fat, ugly, stupid pile of pig crap: as usual God (AKA Al Davis) has taken excellent care of one of his players and he’s now back on the field. Suck that you pathetic momma’s boy scumbag.
