Jason Campbell CLE -QBsigns 2-year deal with Browns
The Browns have signed QB Jason Campbell to a 2-year deal. He struggled in 2 extended appearances with the Bears last year, but one came in sloppy conditions and the other against a tough 49ers defense. For his career, Campbell has completed a solid 61% of his passes with 76 TDs and 52 INTs. His big arm makes him a nice fit in HC Rob Chudzinski's vertical passing attack. And the new regime seems lukewarm at best on QB Brandon Weeden. Campbell has a chance to win this starting job. Of course, that still wouldn't make him much of a fantasy option.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBsigns with Bears
QB Jason Campbell has signed with the Bears. The move obviously turns him into Jay Cutler's backup. It's a surprisingly quick signing, considering the situation, for a guy who has started for 2 NFL teams. Campbell can certainly deliver more than Caleb Hanie, who stepped in after Cutler got hurt last year.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBon the Jets radar
ESPN New York’s Rich Cimini reports the Jets have “discussed the possibility” of signing QB Jason Campbell. The veteran signal caller would certainly push Mark Sanchez in camp, though Cimini notes there’s concern from the team that Campbell “needs practice reps to be effective,” making him a less attractive backup option. Less than 24 hours ago, reports surfaced that the Jets are interested in former Dolphin QB Chad Henne. 2012 is shaping up to be a make or break season for Sanchez.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBundergoes surgery
Raiders QB Jason Campbell will undergo surgery on his broken collarbone on Monday. According to Campbell, he could be back in 6 weeks if everything goes to plan. That'd put him back on the field in time for Week 13. That's a best-case scenario, though, and Oakland may not be willing to keep him on the active roster for all that time. Remember that Cowboys QB Tony Romo broke his collarbone in Week 7 last year and never returned. Campbell is still likely to end up on IR. He can be dropped in fantasy leagues.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBhas broken collarbone
Raiders QB Jason Campbell broke his collarbone in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns. The injury is expected to cost him the rest of the season. QB Kyle Boller was predictably mediocre in Campbell's absence, completing 8 of 14 passes for 100 yards. He's currently slated to take over as Oakland's starter, although we wouldn't be surprised if the team went after free-agent QB David Garrard. Regardless, this is a sizable blow to the Raiders' passing game.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBleaves with undisclosed injury
Raiders QB Jason Campbell headed back to the locker room with trainers in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's game against the Browns. It looked like a shoulder injury, but we're just speculating. We'll update Campbell's status when we learn more.
Update: Campbell's injury is to his collarbone.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBthe clear-cut starter in Oakland
Raiders HC Hue Jackson made it clear that Jason Campbell is his starting QB. "Does anybody no know who the starting quarterback is of the Raiders," Jackson asked rhetorically. "Are you kidding me? Doesn’t he wear No. 8? His name is Jason Campbell. He is the starting quarterback of the Raiders. Period!" After losing QB Bruce Gradkowski to Cincinnati earlier today, Oakland may look to bring in a free-agent back-up. But it's clear that this is Campbell's team. If the Raiders are able to re-sign TE Zach Miller, Campbell looks like a low-end QB2.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBlocked into starting job
Raiders new HC Hue Jackson confirmed that Jason Campbell is locked in as the team's starting QB for 2011. "The guy won some very important games," Jackson said of Campbell. "The guy played hurt. The guy got to know his teammates, rallied his team, and finished very strong... There’s no question he is definitely the unquestioned starter on this football team at this point." Former HC Tom Cable was more of a Bruce Gradkowski backer, but Campbell now has both Jackson and owner Al Davis in his corner. That being said, he's just a mid-range QB2 in fantasy until Oakland gets consistent play from its WRs.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBleaves with knee injury
Raiders QB Jason Campbell left Sunday's game against the Chiefs with a knee injury. The team is calling his return doubtful. QB Kyle Boller is currently in the game.
Update: Campbell returned for the 2nd quarter.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBstill the starter
Raiders HC Tom Cable (read: owner Al Davis) confirmed in his post-game press conference that Jason Campbell will remain the team's starting QB. Campbell was pulled in Sunday's game against the Steelers after completing just 7 of 19 passes for 70 yards and an INT. Replacement Bruce Gradkowski wasn't any better though, totaling just 98 yards with a pick. Campbell will get the nod in Week 12, but we wouldn't be surprised to see him lose the starting job between now and the end of the season.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBbenched
Raiders QB Jason Campbell was benched in favor of QB Bruce Gradkowski in the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Steelers. Campbell finished just 7 of 19 for 70 yards and 1 INT.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBnamed Week 11 starter
Raiders HC Tom Cable has officially named QB Jason Campbell his starter for Week 11. QB Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) is healthy, but Campbell has earned the job by winning 4 of the team's last 5 games. Consider Campbell a mid-range QB2 the rest of the way.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBlikely to keep starting job
Raiders HC Tom Cable indicated that he's leaning towards sticking with Jason Campbell's "hot hand" as his starting QB. Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) will likely be ready to play after the team's Week 10 bye, but it'd be tough to bench Campbell after he's led the team to 3 straight wins.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBwill start Week 9
Raiders HC Tom Cable has named QB Jason Campbell his Week 9 starter. QB Bruce Gradkowski (shoulder) is doing more in practice this week but still isn't ready for game action. If Campbell gets another win against the Chiefs this Sunday, it'll be interesting to see if Oakland goes back to Gradkowski.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBwill start Week 8
Raiders HC Tom Cable confirmed that QB Jason Campbell will start Sunday's game against the Seahawks. QB Bruce Gradkowski is still dealing with a bum shoulder and was only able to do light throwing drills this week. Despite a solid showing last Sunday, Campbell is just a low-end QB2 option for Week 8.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBactive, starting
As expected, Raiders QB Jason Campbell (knee) is active and will start against the Broncos today.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBwill start Week 7
NFL Network's Jason La Canfora reports that Raiders QB Jason Campbell (knee) will start for the Raiders against the Broncos later today. You'd need to be real desperate to start Campbell, but this is good news for WR Louis Murphy and TE Zach Miller. We'll confirm that Campbell is active around 3 pm ET.
Jason Campbell CLE -QBcould still play Week 7
Raiders HC Tom Cable would not rule QB Jason Campbell (knee) out for Sunday's game against the Broncos, saying that Campbell would start "if his progression continues." Campbell is officially listed as questionable and will be a game-time call. If he can't go, QB Kyle Boller would start. Neither guy is a fantasy option, and we're not even sure Campbell would be much better for Oakland's receivers.
