Raiders quarterback Bruce Gradkowski confirmed a third degree separation to his right shoulder Wednesday but said he still hopes to play this season.
“I don’t see the season being over for me yet,” Gradkowski said. “I mean, I’m not going to go down yet. I’m just going to keep preparing, just keep rehabbing. But I’m thinking a couple of weeks and get back. If we can make a run here, keep doing well in our division, I think we’ll be all right.”
Gradkowski said the diagnosis wasn’t much different than it was after the first Chargers game, when the injury cost him five weeks. He said third-degree separations don’t necessarily mean surgery and noted it “seems like my shoulder is still strong to where if I just let it heal right, I’ll be all right.”
