UPDATED 7:06 p.m. ET: According to NFL.com, Campbell will miss the rest of the season with his dislocated shoulder.

----------

Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell has been knocked out of the Oakland-Cleveland game with about 4 minutes left in the second quarter, and according to the San Francisco Chronicle, he's dislocated his shoulder.  After gaining seven yards on a run, Cleveland’s Scott Fujita tackled him, and Campbell stayed on the turf until Oakland trainers could reach him.

As he slowly walked off the field, Campbell -- who was 6 of 9 for 52 yards and had helped the Raiders to a 14-7 lead against the Browns -- Campbell, in obvious pain, held his arm close to abdomen. Kyle Boller is in to replace Campbell, and on his first play in the game, a fourth and 1 from the Raiders 34, the team went for it and Boller gained the first down on a sneak.

If Boller were to go down, Terrelle Pryor -- who is not on the active roster -- would not play. Instead, the Raiders emergency third quarterback is punter Shane Lechler.

The problem with Kyle Boller is he has trouble making decisions and holds on to the ball too long.  Boller started for a Ravens O-line that gave up the most sacks in the NFL.  The next year McNair came and the O-line gave up the 2nd LOWEST number of sacks.  Then McNair got his hand stepped on in a game in the 2nd quarter.  Boller came in and was sacked 3x and fumbled the ball away 2x.

Watching Campbell during his Redskins days, he was sometimes slow but that was mostly due to changing coaches -and systems- every year.

This is not that big of a blow then what people think. Campbell is not the key to why the Raiders are winning. Boller will fill in fine for now. Just hand the ball off and short passes and let the speed do the rest.

This is a HUGE blow to the Raiders chances.  Boller is a serviceable backup but he should not be a starter for any team.  As a lifelong Raiders fan, I have been embarassed for the last decade or so by both the product the Raiders have put on the field and the fans.  Now, after a non-losing season, it appeared as if they may challenge for a title.  Campbell's maturation has been a big part of the resurgence.  This is tragic.

I am imporessed with the team's overall play and see them headed in the right direction.  I hope they can rebound from this injury and play good football.

Al Davis just phoned from Hell to see if JaMarcus Russell is still on the couch.

I don't think Cincy will just give Palmer away. Plus the Raiders have very few draft picks next year and Cincy will want a lot in return. You can have Orton for a conditional draft pick and take some of his salary responsibility. Change of scenery might do him well and with Oakland's strong running game will keep him from making mistakes. Just my opinion.  

Cinci isn't trading Palmer, period.  I don't know what the owner has to say or do to convince people, other then to say again what he's already said.  Carson Palmer is under contract, he signed it and he's obligated to play it out.  Palmer said he'd retire instead of playing in Cinci and  the owner ( Palmer's boss) accepted his retirement.  If Palmer wants to come back, by rule he has to play in Cinci.

The only way I can see the Bengals trading Palmer is if and only if somebody blows them away with an unbelievable offer.... I think it would have to be so ridiculous it's just not going to happen in my opinion... maybe I'll be wrong, we'll see.

Kyle Boller is the man...he went to Cal and he is just like Aaron Rodgers...if not better.

You've got to be kidding.  I can't believe anyone could write this and keep a straight face.  Rodgers was a much better QB than Boller at Cal, and Rodgers is a much better QB than Boller in the NFL.  Boller had more chances than he ever should have been given to prove that he was a quality NFL QB.  He failed miserably.

It's eery how I am able to predict the future in sports. Prior to the season starting I had said that Jason Campbell would not finish the season as the starter. My reasoning is that Campbell is a terrible QB. He can't make the accurate throw. He can't read defenses. He cannot be coached. He has a bad attitude. He does not take criticism well. Kyle Boller is the man...he went to Cal and he is just like Aaron Rodgers...if not better. Same coaching background. Same everything. Except that he didn't get a chance to learn from the great Brett Favre. The Raiders are all in for the long haul and it's only going to get better. 

Now that Al Davis has passed.....you guys can fully expect Campbell to have played his last game as a Raider. Campbell is terrible.....and that's putting it mildly.
