Oakland Raiders Thursday Injury Report

The Oakland Raiders are dealing with injury problems of their own, much like the Seattle Seahawks, with the most significant being to starting quarterback Bruce Gradkowski. After being unable to practice on Wednesday, Gradkowsi returned to work today, only practicing on a limited basis. Head coach Tom Cable didn’t sound optimistic about Gradkowski’s chances of starting, making it likely that Jason Campbell gets another start this week.

ESPN.com’s Bill Williamson had the report on Gradkowski and a few other injured Raiders.

The Oakland Tribune reports that Raiders coach Tom Cable said starting quarterback Bruce Gradkowski will only play Sunday against Seattle if he has no issues and can practice fully Friday. Unless Gradkowski makes major strides in the next 24 hours, he will likely miss his third straight start and be replaced by Jason Campbell.

In addition to the quarterback situation, the Raiders will likely be starting a rookie at wide receiver. With Louis Murphy still doubtful after suffering a lung bruise, the Raiders will turn to Jacoby Ford — a rookie out of Clemson. Chaz Shilens has been slow to recover from a knee/foot injury, leaving the Raiders thin at wide receiver.

With Campbell under center and a depleted receiver corps, running backs Michael Bush and Darren McFadden should see plenty of touches this weekend. McFadden returned from an injury of his own last weekend, exploding for 165 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
