Raiders coach Hue Jackson said in a conference call Sunday night that quarterback Jason Campbell likely will be cleared to practice Monday in Napa. Tight end Kevin Boss won’t be so fortunate.
Boss took a helmet to the knee at the end of a reception against the 49ers on Saturday night, and he wound up with an injury that is going to keep him out for an undetermined length of time. Jackson said Boss is “week to week.”
Jackson said the same thing about wide receiver Chaz Schilens when Schilens suffered a leg injury against the Arizona Cardinals. Schilens hasn’t practiced with the team ever since. Jackson said Boss’ timetable is comparable to that of Schilens.
Campbell still has to pass a series of tests before he is cleared to play. He spent part of Sunday undergoing tests to determine whether he suffered a concussion when 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks kneed him in the head.
I am filling in for beat writer Jerry McDonald today. So, I need to write a story for the newspaper before I return to wrap up this blog entry.
