Raiders bench Russell in favor of Gradkowski

Raiders coach Tom Cable has apparently seen enough trailing 21-0 midway through the second quarter. Cable has benched starting QB JaMarcus Russell in favor of veteran backup Bruce Gradkowski.

Russell completed 6 of 11 passes for 61 yards before being pulled and was responsible for three turnovers — two interceptions and a fumble on the first play of the game which led to the Jets’ first touchdown.
