Campbell having surgery, hopes to return

Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell is scheduled for surgery Monday on his broken right clavicle but hopes to return this season.

Campbell, leaving the facility with his right arm in a sling, stopped for a moment to break the news.

“I’m having surgery today. It was a tough break,’’ Campbell said. “I’m going to stay positive. If everything goes right I could be back in six weeks.’’

That would make the best-case scenario having Campbell return for the Sunday, Nov. 27 game against the Chicago Bears. They visit the Miami Dolphins the following week on Dec. 4.

In the meantime, the Raiders will go forward with Kyle Boller as the starter. At present, the only backup on the roster is Terrelle Pryor, scheduled to come off the exempt list Monday.

According to ESPN, the Raiders have reached out to both David Garrard and Josh McCown. A Yahoo.com story said the Raiders were also interested in Cincinnati’s Carson Palmer, who is property of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Cincinnati has been adamant about not trading Palmer, and is dealing from a position of strength with a 4-2 record behind quarterback Andy Dalton.

The Raiders must release a player to accommodate Pryor, and although no move has been announced, cornerback Joe Porter was cleaning out his locker and said he was “moving on.’’

    Garcia just rated himself is the top 40 QB in the NFL even at 41 years old. I’d rather have Jeff George. Our team is built for a guy with a strong arm.

    ++++++++++++

    only 32 teams in the league, so what he is saying is he is a backup…

    I’m secretly holding out hope we sign Jeff George as a backup who then takes the job and leads us into the playoffs.

    Would love some kind of insane, ridonkulous twist like that on this season. Nothing that cool ever happens in sports anymore.

    ++++++++++++

    If the choice is George or Boller I’ll roll with George just for the novelty of it. Going with Boller means we are folding the tents on 2011 anyhow. Might as well bring the circus to town just for something fun to watch. Same for Favre.

    Whats it say about Teblows that immediatly upon being announced as the starter TWO WRs ask to be traded

    ***

    “Chris Mortensen of ESPN confirms the trade is a done deal, and the Rams will only send a sixth-round pick to Denver in 2012. It could upgrade to a fifth-round pick if Lloyd catches 30 passes over the next 11 games.”

    says more about Dunver management imo

  • Chris in NY

    Palmer makes sense but the Bengals are stupid. Mike Brown doesn’t realize he’s made his point, he has his QB of the future and he’s only hurting his own team with this nonsense.

    If they sign a 40+ QB, might as well go with Favre.

    If we can’t get Palmer, Roll with Boller.

    I don’t like Orton but I don’t think he is a bad QB either. He just doesn’t seem like Raider material.

    Agree 100%

    Every time I see one of our guys do it a huge hole opens up and the player fall in.

    He can come in, act all snotty, then say he’s “hurt” the minute it becomes obvious we’re not just handing him the starting job. Pass.

    ***

    Duck,

    none of that is true. They told Jeff that he could compete for the starting job. Then when he signed the contract they announced a week later “JaMarcus is our starting QB”. So he requested his release and got it. JR was benched before midseason and Brittle Bruce won over the hearts of many – including MR & JFB

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

    Go back and check Jerry’s blogs from that era (they’re all link on the right-hand side of this page.

    We have no way of knowing what Al did or did not privately promise Garcia.

    What we DO know is that Garcia almost immediately claimed he had a “hurt leg,” and this “hurt leg” prevented him from even attending meetings or huddling with the other QB’s during practice. By an incredible coincidence, he’d also had the same “hurt leg,” with its accompanying violent reaction to team meetings, the previous year in Tampa when the Bucs were actively courting Favre. As soon as Favre went to the Jets, Garcia’s “hurt leg” immediately made a 100% recovery.

    Translation: He didn’t want to be a backup, so he mentally checked out.

    If he’d stayed, he (and not Gradkowski) would have taken over during the Great JaMarcus sitdown, and he easily could have pulled a Plunkett-like resurrection. As it stands, he’s another ex-jock angling for the glory days.

    No way should we want him screwing up Hue’s locker room, no matter how hot his wife Carmella is.

  • hwnrdr

    Also, didn’t Garcia say that Russell did not want to learn from him? That is probably what disgusted him the most!

    Carson Palmer should just show up to the Bengals today and force the issue, if he wants to be a Raider.

  • RAIDERMAN99

    Campbell hopes to return huh ?

    I hope he doesn’t.

    Had enough of him.

    Time to move on.

    Raid’s best move now ?

    Roll with Boller and ease Pryor in if Kyle proves to be the total scrub and immense drop off from JC that most seem to think he is. Pick up a warm body for insurance just in case Boller gets knocked out.

    Season isn’t over. Replacing Campbell isn’t an insurmountable task.

    Raids must avoid falling into the mindset that JC is going to be the returning savior this year or any time in the future.

    Thanks to Campbell for being a dedicated professional and a good team guy. Campbell’s arrival made it possible to jettison JaMoron. For that, we should all be grateful. Now it’s time for Boller to steer the ship until we can find out if Pryor can be the man.

    Hard to accept now, but this might be a blessing in disguise.

    No blinking !

  • raiderinpa

    Since all sort of names are being dropped, bring back Gannon… Probably the most polished QB we’ve had in years.. Decades I guess at this point!

    Garrard, Young, Jamarcuss, Campbell, Culpepper, McNabb and even Vick – One common thing…no, not that – Sorry & Overrated.

    I will take average Kyle Boller if we have to. If we can get Palmer, awesome…but if either don’t work out, put in Lechler LOL.

    Let’s try to get someone with a Wonderlic score in double digits for a change…

  • KRAWFDADD

    We can win,we will have 2 just ride Mcfadden and Bush like never before now,like the year we had Marc Wilson and Marcus Allen put out like 1700 sum odd yards,and Marc threw the game away against NewEngland in the playoffs….IJS THO

  • KRAWFDADD

    Ddsman all those qb’s are better than Boller by a landslide.Boller couldn’t even cut it in Baltimore when their Defense was lights out so what do you expect him to do in Oakland where our Defense is still not where we want to be yet……..KEEP IT 100
