Jason Campbell splits snaps, but will start if healthy

Jason Campbell was healthy enough to take half of Oakland’s first team reps at practice Wednesday.  And if he’s healthy enough to play on Sunday, he will be Oakland’s starting quarterback again.

Raiders coach Tom Cable confirmed that the quarterback pecking order remains the same in Oakland Wednesday afternoon, according to Jerry McDonald of the Oakland Tribune.

Bruce Gradkowski will get his starting job back when he gets healthy, but he didn’t practice Wednesday and looks unlikely to be ready because of his shoulder injury. 

Campbell is still ahead of Kyle Boller, although Boller oddly took half of the team’s snaps at practice.  Earlier Wednesday morning, Cable said he had “no idea” who will start.  Campbell’s ability to practice indicates he’s likely to get the call.

Running back Darren McFadden also returned to practice, although it was a light session.  If McFadden can practice Thursday, it appears he’ll play against the Broncos.

    C’mon Gregg, you left out the best part of the story.. that punter Shane Lechler was also taking snaps at the QB. Ironically, his contract is worth more than all 3 qb’s combined. As a Raider fan who’s hopes for this season went swimming in a canal with Pat Mcafee, I’d like to see the punter under center come game day.

    Cable has “no idea” about a lot of football related topics namely being head coach of an NFL team.

    If Campbell starts again i can’t even watch come sunday. He’s horrible and bringing down the whole offense. Boller left handed has to be better then campbell. Every ball he threw in the last game was either high, late getting there or under-thrown. The guy is a complete joke only way he’s effective is dumping the ball off to mcfadden or bush and hitting miller for short gains. Bruce please learn to slide and stay on the field so the Raider’s can atleast have a chance to win some games…

    They start this Deer in the Headlights QB. And he plays the way he did in TN and in San Francisco making the receivers disappear and we lose I am done, finished.
    He lost the game in San Francisco all on his own. He made the receivers look bad which were open for Days. He put the D in a pinch that was pitching a near shut out with his 3 and outs for 3 quarters. And with no fear of the pass he helped the Niners shut down the run.
    He hesitates on his throws almost looking afraid to let the ball go. He throws the ball to the wrong receivers and late almost always and that is when he does throw at all. He is the King of the dump off pass and makes those look complicated. And all this is with time or not.
    DHB, Murphy and Miller were open FOR DAYS in San Francisco.

    One last thing, it is good the game will be in Denver. With Campbell starting the 20 people that now go to the Home Games would stay home.

    I like retarded children. They smile a lot, friendly, want to try really really hard, but in the end, they are retarded. This is why Jason Campbell is perfect at qb for the Raiders. Hope he stays there forever. He is even better that Jamarcus. This just keeps getting better.

    don’t believe in Boller, Raider fans. Kyle Boller is not good at football. If you do not believe the video, ask any Ravens fan. Sure, he is a good guy, he just can’t play football.

    I like retarded children.
    I’m sure you do. It’s probably nice having someone you can relate to on an intellectual level.

    JaMarcus on his worst day was better than Campbell on his worst day. The way Campbell’s been playing, he’s going to have more bad days than good.

    How was jamarcus better than campbell? Yall must be effin retarded. Jamarcus was the bottom of the barrell, Cambpell is way below the half way point but he def aint the bottom. Imma raiders fan but even I kno Campbell isnt no where near as garbage as “stare-em-down” jamarcus. I’d rather my qb atleast check down than to eye one reciever the whole time

    nothing beats watching campbell drive them down the field for maybe one first down and a hold your breath field goal…
    we’ll be back…eventually.

    I didn’t like the Campbell trade, even for a 4th rounder because i knew he’d get the start over Grads. Luckily Cable pulled the trigger after 6 QRTS of just plain awful football. Campbell is sligtlt better then Russell because he can move better. They both have that same 1000 yd stare in their eyes because they have no clue what they are looking at downfield. I say give Boller a start and see what he can do. He can’t do any worse then Campbell has, and if he does…cut in on the plane ride home.

    TO JAWNIEL: your screen name stinks and you need an English teach to post something that doesn’t make Raider fans look stupid.
    “Imma stupid Raida fan U kno?”
    Ebonics failed loser!

    man, what can you say…if Jason Campbell plays anything like he did last week, pull the plug quick Boller I think would have to try his best to suck, to be that bad…….Most of all Jason Campbell better show some type of raw emotion like he at least cares about his job, team, nation and display some sense of pride that he gets to put on the silver and black. All I have seen thus far is a guy sharing J-bust’s codines coughy syrup,and is just here for a check. He shows that he could care less if we win or lose…..can you please get pissed off that you sucked last week, and show some kind of passion for the game…that or get on the next bus out of town.

    Well said.

    Per PFT: “Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell had a quarterback rating of 10.7 on Sunday against the 49ers. That’s worse than any start JaMarcus Russell ever had.”
    Ergo, “JaMarcus on his worst day was better than Campbell on his worst day.”
    JaCampbell “eyed” Zach Miller the whole time on that Lawson pick.
