Should Jason Campbell start the 2011 season as the Raiders’ starting quarterback, he’ll face Sports Betting odds that are long when it comes to having success — and for good reason.
Bruce Gradkowski will be the third quarterback while Jason Campbell continues at the helm of the Raiders’ offense today against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The big news, thanks to Campbell’s play the last two weeks, is that both Nnamdi Asomugha (ankle) and Zach Miller (foot) will miss the game with injuries. Here is the list of the inactives and lineup changes for today’s game. Check back after the game for post game quotes and notes.
As Raider luck would have it, the Raiders are about to face the Kansas City Chiefs in not only the biggest game of this season, but the biggest game in nearly a decade — and there’s a good possibility that they’ll do it without their two best players of recent years.
Prior to practice today, the Raiders gave access to both their offensive (Hue Jackson) and defensive (John Marshall) coordinators. Both were upbeat and at the very least seemed happy to speak with the media this morning. We’ll break it up with excerpts from Marshall, Jackson, Tom Cable’s daily, some practice details, and a quote from the ever-ready Tommy Kelly.

Just when you thought Kyle Boller would be elevated to starting status, Tom Cable stepped up to the podium and put that thought on hold. Cable’s first remarks to the press today following the team’s practice was to give an injury report.
Just got back from watching the beginning of the Raiders practice. Here are a few observations:
You’ve been reading about it, hearing about it, and probably anticipating it, but you can stop wasting your time–because Tom Cable will be the Raiders’ head coach in 2010. All of it!
Getting back to the business of football wasn’t the happy event that Tom Cable probably hoped for. During Friday’s final practice, the debut of his best receiver went from definite to doubtful.
After taking a day off, the Oakland Raiders continued to prepare for Philadelphia on Wednesday.
As you might have already heard from your local or national sports network, the Oakland Raiders didn’t fare too well over the weekend. That’s a rather hasty rush to judgment since you never know how well a team has actually done in the draft until three years later.
