Raiders trade out DBs
By Bill Williamson
SAN DIEGO -- The Oakland Raiders made a roster move in anticipation of Thursday night’s game against the Chargers.
Oakland switched out safeties. In is Jerome Boyd. Out is Chinedum Ndukwe. Ndukwe was signed last month. Boyd was previously with the team.
In other AFC West nuggets:
Injured Oakland quarterback Jason Campbell is not giving up on playing this season. He broke his collarbone last month and there is a chance he could potentially play the end of the season. But the only way Oakland is going to use Campbell this season is if Carson Palmer -- acquired two days after Campbell’s injury -- gets injured or falters terribly. Campbell is a free agent at the end of the year and he will likely sign elsewhere.
- Former star quarterback Kurt Warner believes Palmer is a better option for the Raiders than Campbell.
- Denver linebacker Wesley Woodward didn’t practice for the second straight day with a knee injury. Kansas City linebacker Demorrio Williams sat out his second straight day of practice with a groin injury. Kansas City safety Jon McGraw practiced fully Thursday after being limited with a shoulder injury.
I will check in later with more pre-game notes.
