Raiders pull Campbell in favor of Gradkowski

UPDATE: For now, at least, it doesn’t appear that Campbell’s starting job is in jeopardy. Cable gave Campbell a vote of confidence, saying during his postgame news conference he will remain the starter against the Dolphins next week.


After riding a hot hand in Jason Campbell, Raiders coach Tom Cable has decided that hand has cooled off. Cable has pulled Campbell during the third quarter against the Steelers, looking for a spark from Bruce Gradkowksi.

According to the Raiders, Campbell is not injured. This is a coach’s decision.

The Raiders’ recent offensive success has come to a halt against the Steelers. Nearing the end of the third quarter, they’ve managed three points, 83 total yards and 19 rushing yards.

Campbell had led the Raiders to wins in their last three games, throwing for 843 yards with five touchdowns and an interception.
