Raiders' Campbell out; key players return

By Bill Williamson

The Oakland Tribune reports that Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell is not practicing. He left Saturday’s loss at San Francisco early and he had a concussion test. Yet, Oakland coach Hue Jackson said Sunday he expected Campbell to practice Monday.

It will be interesting to see what Jackson says after practice Monday. It's not out of the question that Campbell sits the rest of the preseason as a precaution.

The Raiders, who have been banged up this training camp, did get some good injury news. Running back Darren McFadden (broken orbital bone), receiver Jacoby Ford and pass-rusher Trevor Scott (knee) all returned to practice Monday. McFadden and Ford were hurt in camp and Scott was hurt last season. Barring setbacks, all three players should be ready to play at Denver on Sept. 12.
