Oakland Raiders QB Jason Campbell appeared to injure his shoulder or collarbone while attempting a QB run in the second quarter of today’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
The Raiders lead the Browns 14-7 at the half, thanks to a 101-yard kickoff return from Jacoby Ford.
Campbell landed hard on his right shoulder, rolled over onto his back and immediately began clutching at his collarbone/shoulder area with left hand. Campbell seemed to be in considerable pain and was holding his arm stationary as he was escorted to the locker room.
There is no word yet on Campbell’s status. Needless to say a broken collarbone would be devastating
More after the jump.
The Raiders’ backup QB is Kyle Boller. After Boller on the depth chart is former Ohio State QB Terrell Pryor.
Boller is thus far 0-2 for 0 yards. He has also been sacked once.
Obviously this could have a big impact on next week’s game between the Chiefs and Raiders. The Chiefs have the advantage of being on a bye this week so Todd Haley and Romeo Crennel can watch Boller closely in the second half of this game and get an early start on their film study should word come down that Campbell’s injury is serious enough to keep him out next week.
