Another Update: Jason Campbell is back in for Bruce Gradkowski.
UPDATE: Gradkowski back in, Campbell out. Man, this guy’s tough. Vintage Raiders QB. Bring out your throwback Kenny Stabler jerseys. Insert Bruce, exit Jason. See a recurring theme? The trend is being played out like QB “Musical Chairs”.
Earlier report: Bruce Gradkowski has been knocked out of the game with a shoulder injury, an injury he had been dealing with heading into the game.
The gritty, gusty Gradkowski was smacked by San Diego’s Shaun Phillips on a pass play in the final minute of the first quarter Sunday. The play was originally ruled a fumble. The Raiders challenged and it was changed to an incomplete pass.
Bruce came out and was replaced by former starter Jason Campbell. The teams says Gradkowski is done for today, and will not return. Gradkowski injured his shoulder after a hit last week but did not miss any action.
