Raiders coach Tom Cable held a conference call (transcript here) earlier this afternoon and addressed the various injury issues facing the Raiders following their game with the 49ers.
Jason Campbell left the field with what was reported as a stinger. However, Coach Cable indicated that Campbell came down on his right throwing wrist and had sprained it on the Travis LaBoy sack. However, the stinger and wrist injuries do not appear to be too serious and Campbell is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season. One would imagine he’ll sit out Thursday’s preseason finale.
Michael Bush will have a “procedure” on his left thumb tomorrow (Monday), at which point more will be known as to the extent of time he will miss. Cable seemed to be optimistic Bush would be back for Week 1, but more will be known after the procedure.
Chaz Schilens recently had his knee scoped this past Tuesday and Cable indicated Schilens would miss anywhere from three to six weeks with the injury. We’ll see if that ends up being an accurate assessment.
