Charlie Frye Likely Out For Season

His wrist injury will likely put him on injured reserve for 4-5 months.

The Raiders placed backup quarterback Charlie Frye on the injured-reserve list once they learned he is going to need four or five months to rehabilitate his right wrist.

Frye suffered ligament damage in his wrist while bracing himself as he fell during a drill Aug. 5. He underwent surgery Wednesday and is out for the rest of the season.

“I don’t know enough about it to give you details,” Raiders coach Tom Cable said. “It’s a ligament (injury) in the wrist that is very rare.”

This could mean very good things for Kyle Boller, who is battling for that third string spot.

Frye’s misfortune is Kyle Boller’s good fortune. Boller was signed as a free agent in June as an extra quarterback to take reps in camp. Now he’s in line to make the 53-man roster.

“He’s getting a new start, and he’s making the most of it, certainly,” Cable said
