Default Boller Likely to Start for Raiders

It's not even mid-season, but the Oakland Raiders appear to be on the verge of using their third starting quarterback this year.

Jason Campbell's knee is sprained, and Bruce Gradkowski hasn't practiced in a week because of a bum shoulder. All indications are that Kyle Boller will be the Raiders' starter Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Comcast's Kate Longworth reports via Twitter that Jason Campbell's MRI indicated a "sprain, maybe (a) meniscus tear" and that Campbell's status is "day-to-day".

When asked Monday if Boller might get the start, Raiders coach Tom Cable issued a surprisingly enthusiastic response. "Oh, absolutely, absolutely," he's quoted as telling the Oakland Tribune.

And if you believe in reading between lines, Ms. Longworth notes that Boller took the place of Campbell in Monday's locker room media session.

The Raiders have no quarterback behind Boller on their roster. (RB Michael Bush played some QB in high school - he'll probably sub in if Boller goes down).

What about Bruce Gradkowski's amazing energy? That can't heal his shoulder?

Anyway, I'm on record as saying the Jets ended Denver's season, but if Kyle Boller makes it *official* at 2-5...

That's cool. Just put me on record as saying that you're a bloated sack of fecal matter with no friends, that's why you hang out here.

I'm not sure how being a game and a half back before we play a divisional game has "ended our season" but ok

If the Raiders are out of field goal range do you think the refs will let Kyle Boller attempt to throw it through the uprights from his knees?

Today - 2:35 PM ET

Coach Tom Cable admitted Wednesday that the Raiders "have no idea" who their starting quarterback will be in Week 7.

"We've got some issues," said Cable in Wednesday's conference call with Denver reporters. "So, I don't really know when we'll have something definitive, hopefully tomorrow, but today we'll learn a lot, so we'll see." Jason Campbell will test his knee in Wednesday's practice, and Bruce Gradkowski will do the same with his throwing shoulder. If neither shows significant improvement, Kyle Boller will likely draw the start against the Broncos.

I remember Boller singlehandedly winning a game for the Broncos with 4 picks in a 12-10 game.

The raiders had the punter taking snaps in practice today...

Lechler new quarterback
7

With Bruce Gradkowski out (shoulder) and Jason Campbell apparently bothered by a sore knee, there was some thought that the Raiders would sign a quarterback just to help get through practice this week.

They didn't, and Wednesday they turned to punter Shane Lechler to help out. Lechler, who has a nice arm and helps out throwing at drills during training camp, got behind center a few times to spell Campbell and Kyle Boller at practice.

Lechler, 34, led East Bernard High (Texas) to the state quarterfinals his senior year, completing 87 of 101 (86.1%) passes for 1,640 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Raiders fans can go ahead and start the "Even the punter is better than Campbell" talk now.

As for Campbell, he and Boller took turns with the first team at practice as Gradkowski watched. Ditto running backs Darren McFadden and Michael Bush. It was hard to tell how close McFadden is to returning from a hamstring inury as the practice was half-speed at best.

Backup running back Michael Bennett did say he was a "full go" after his hamstring inury and the left tackle rotation may be over. Jared Veldheer seemed to get every snap, as he may have beaten out Mario Henderson.

We get coach Tom Cable in an hour or so.

Honestly, I'd rather see Campbell than anyone. We'll have more film on him, and none of it is good.
