While Jason Campbell was at the podium talking to the some of the assembled media Wednesday, Bruce Gradkowski said at his locker he was encouraged by his improvement and was hoping to throw well at practice Wednesday.
Campbell said his status as the Raiders backup despite back-to-back games with passer ratings of more than 120 has not been discussed.
Coach Tom Cable will provide the league-mandated update of injured players following practice although it’s doubtful he’ll have anything definitive about cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, tight end Zach Miller or Gradkowski until later of the week in preparation to face the Kansas City Chiefs.
Nothing official from the Raiders, but the word is tickets are moving briskly with the help of a 2-for-1 ticket offer, leaving open the possibility the 11-game blackout streak could end.
Tickets must be sold out 72 hours before kickoff, but the Raiders, if close, could ask for an extension Friday.
More to come later . . .
