Campbell throwing at practice

Jason Campbell was participating in a walk-through practice session with the other Raiders quarterbacks Monday, throwing passes of 20 to 30 yards in range, beat writer Steve Corkran reports.

Campbell sustained a stinger and a right wrist injury in Saturday night’s 28-24 loss to San Francisco, with coach Tom Cable saying during a conference call that the wrist injury was of bigger concern with regard to the season opener Sept. 12 against Tennessee.

The Raiders have just three days to prepare for Thursday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, with rosters cut to 75 on Wednesday.

Among those who were on the field during the media window (practice is now closed to the media except for warmups and some drills) were center Samson Satele (ankle), Richard Seymour (triceps) and cornerback Chris Johnson (hamstring).

Those not present included wide receiver Chaz Schilens (knee), defensive tackle Desmond Bryant (elbow), cornerback Joey Thomas (concussion), running back Michael Bush (thumb), defensive end Alex Daniels (groin) and defensive end Jay Richardson (groin).

I’ll pass along some post-practice news and notes as relayed by Steve . . .

    Well do have have Boller as a back up QB, he is not so bad either. Pitts needs a starting QB and they need one now. Mabey we could get a C and a draft pick. I think its worth it.

    Who gives a better chance against Tenn, Cambpell or Gradkowski?
    _______________________________________________________

    I know some of you may not agree with me on this one, but I say Gradkowski.

    Until we get our line fixed, Grads has the right internal clock that helps him get the ball out quick. Campbell holds on to the ball a tad too long with the weak o-line that we have.

    Campbell also hesitates to run for the first down when there appears to be a wide opening sometimes.

    Grads has the energy and play making ability that I think we will need to get a win on the road. When he entered the game on Sat. the whole Coliseum just lit up with electricity. His enthusiasm is contagious, and he was deadly accurate as well.

    I like Campbell alot. I just don’t want him to rush back and get hit again, even worse, and be out for the season.

    i had my cup of tea this morning and read the tea leaves it said raiders beat titans 30-24

  • RNOraiderFan

    Did big John Henderson make any plays aginst SF?
    Nah Nada, Took a big crap at halftime, that was his biggest effort of the night.

  • BigLefty

    Titans 31 Raiders 17 = without Bush. It could be a Raider win with him.

    There was NO electricity until Grads hit Muph on the 74yd TD strike. It was pretty damn quiet when DMac went out of bounds on his 1yd catch with 55 seconds left…

    so with cut days fast approaching, I only see a few battles left to be won:

    WR (1 spot) – Nick Miller, Yamon Figurs, Todd Watkins. I keep waiting for one of these guys to step up on special teams, or make a big catch late in the game.

    S (1 spot) – Hiram Eugene or Stevie Brown. I am rooting for Brown as he always seems to be around the ball and I am just tired of watching Eugene out there.

    OL (1 spot) – Chris Morris or Eric Pears. I don’t understand why Cable is giving Pears so much run with the first team offense the last couple of weeks but there HAS to be a reason…right? Morris is just terrible at this point in his career.

    LB (3 spots) – Sam Williams, Ricky Brown, Thomas Howard, Slade Norris, Travis Goethel. This is still the most contested position on the squad. Special teams will determine who stays and who goes. I am rooting for Williams, Howard, and Goethel at this point.

    ^^^^^^^^
    Sam Williams will FINALLY be CUT and the rest will remain on the team as backups and special teams players.

    The special teams needs as many good players as they can get.

    If Grads is the player we all think he is why should we really care who is the starter? Campbell plays well, Grads plays well. I say trade one for some Oline help.

    I wouldn’t mind Williams getting cut, but he has been one the few consistent special teams tacklers the last couple of games…

    Surprise, surprise, is he EVER on presnet and on the field practicing??

    Mail him his injury settlement check and lets move on already.

    Hope we get that fixed…

    Eugene will be probably be CUT and Stevie Brown should make it. Brown has upside.

    Figurs and Nick Miller will probably make it because they can help in the return game if necessary.

    Watkins made some critical drops that cost the Raiders the game in the end of the Niner game and it may have cost him a roster spot as well?

    Disagree..I think Groves and R Brown are. Goethel will be right up there to as well.

  • RNOraiderFan

    Get rid of Watkins and Miller, keep Ford JLH and Figurs.

  • Nnamdi21

    69. Watkins critcal drop was an over the shoulder sliding attempt between 2 defenders. He makes the team just cuz he has for so many years.

    Figurs sucks and Miller has done little to nothing to justify another year on the dole.

    Brown seems like aplay maker and Oakland likes that but don’t know if he’s got enough to make the cut. Eugene is Eugene…

  • RNOraiderFan

    With JLH the best out of that bunch

  • RaiderRockstar

    I don’t think the Titan’s D is that weak. Maybe the secondary, but their front four come to play.

    ***

    Kearse, Vanden Bosch & Keith Bulluck are gone.

    Titans front seven was weak enough after Fat Albert took the monster contract in Washington …

    I was thinking the same thing. That drop at the end probably sealed his fate. Watkins has had plenty of chances, but never really seized the moment. He could have sealed the deal with that catch.

    Our best WR? That is just a matter of opinion at this point. He hasn’t been healthy long enough to garner a “best receiver title”. At this point all evidnece points towards Louis Murphy.

    Agreed our WR situation is sad.

    Did big John Henderson make any plays aginst SF?
    ============================================

    No. Henderson sucked out there. The problem with John Henderson is he gets NO PUSH in the passing game. So when you see him line up, you can audible to a pass play, set your protections to pick up the ends, and sit back there for hours until someone comes uncovered. Note the TD pass to Josh Morgan. In 3rd and short Henderson is very good. Other than that, not so good. And notice how the Whiners went for the pass play on the 4th and one.

  • vshape

    cable is a good guy, but he will stear the raiders to lose close games like always. just like this niner game. he doesn’t have that hate for losing like the great coaches do. people always give him a pass, but losing is losing and he has done that alot. i dont need to watch the raiders games to know the outcome. raiders give a good showing, but find a way to lose at the end. can someone call cable out on this? anyone?? did anyone tell cable that raider fans hate hate hate despise loathe detest losing to the niners? did he not get the memo?

    yeah, i know… many will say, its just a preseason game, not a big deal, yada yada, but losing is losing and especially to the hated niners. owe well, i guess we should be happy that we put decent points on the scoreboard as opposed to years past. hooray for mediocre.

    Hey guys.

    Been a while.

    What are your thoughts on Mario Henderson this year. I recently read an article stating he was doing poorly. Living on the East coast, I have to wait for the regular season to get the games. I get nflnetwork, but do not like watching games when I already know the outcome. I have first heard Henderson was doing well, however read an article today suggesting otherwise.

    Anyone…. PLEASE>>>>>

    ^^^^^^^^
    It was still a catchable ball, expecially for a pro. WR’s who want to make a team and are playmakers, make that catch.

    It went right through his arms…

  • RaiderRockstar

    Just Win: the one thing the Raiders aren’t lacking in is pass rushers

    John Henderson is a pure run stuffer. the only true nose tackle on the roster

    if you want to keep getting gashed up the gut – cut him. if you’re sick of it, put the man on the field 15-25 snaps per game and watch him do his thing

  • RNOraiderFan

    V, true, Anyone notice Singeltary throw in 2 starting LBs in one the final drive. He put them in there to rush the passed and win the game.

    ===========================================

    Watkins has made some plays for us as well. He caught the 3rd and 19 pass in KC last year on the winning drive, and had beaten his man which drew a PI penalty on the last drive Sat night. That penalty set up the chance to win the game. That 4th down catch was a VERY difficult catch. He should’ve made it tho.

    Why not with Pitts? They have 2 starting Cs, Let satele slide over to RG.

  • inonewordraider

    I think our WRs have a very bright future, they’re big fast and hard workers. Look how much better DHB looks. Gradkowski looked very good out there and he had 3 consecutive WR drops on one sequence (got bailed out by a SF penalty on one of them) and the Watkins drop (guy has to be cut for that one). I think we have a qb controversy…

  • DKnight007

    I think people panicking about the inconsistent play of McClain in the Niner game should all calm down a bit here. He had 6-7 tackles and 2 assists.

    Please remember people….the kid is STILL a ROOKIE!

    He is still learning and the Niner game was a good learning experience for him. He will only get better.

    I also think maybe the Marshall should have McClain call the defensive signals to start with.

    They should have Branch making defensive signal calls and McClain should be the backup and he can still learn. McClains’ only responsibility right now should be focusing on making plays and being in the right spots.

  • RNOraiderFan

    Pick up WR Bryant! Get a C from Pitts or call on Mawea.

    Read my post again rockstar. If I were an opposing Q and I saw henderson lined up oppo me, I would hold one back in to chip one end, have the TE double the other end, and I would sit back there for days until my receivers uncovered. The NFL is now a passing league. You can’t pass rush, you can’t play. Tommie Kelly was VERY good at pass rush and run defense Sat. That’s what we need here.

    I watch the game, I see brown close on the ball carrier and get carried for 5-7 yard then the tackle is made. Williams on the otherhand smacks fools down on first contact.
