AFC West: Chinedum Ndukwe

Raiders trade out DBs

November, 10, 2011
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.

AFC West notes

October, 18, 2011
Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley said it is not a sure thing that first-round pick Jonathan Baldwin will be active for the first time this season Sunday at Oakland. Haley indicated Baldwin still has some things to work on. He has practiced fully for two weeks after he injured his thumb in a reported fight with teammate Thomas Jones during training camp.

The Oakland Tribune passes along some Oakland Raiders’ notes. Check out the item about quarterback Jason Campbell.

Former Cincinnati Bengals’ defensive back Chinedum Ndukwe tweeted he is joining the Raiders. The Raiders could use depth in the secondary. is reporting the Raiders have contacted Todd Collins about their quarterback opening. He is reportedly not interested. Collins? Yikes. Again, it is looking more and more like backup Kyle Boller will be the Raiders’ starter with Campbell out with a broken collarbone.

A who’s who of Raiders' legends were the pallbearers in the private funeral of Raiders owner Al Davis. He died Oct. 8.
