OAK QB Campbell's stinger injury not serious

Sacramento Bee - [Full Article]

As scary as Jason Campbell's injury appeared following the blind-side sack by Travis LaBoy – Campbell lay prone with a sensation-losing and strength-weakening "stinger" for up to five minutes with trainers keeping his head immobilized – the day after provided a modicum of relief.

Turns out the stinger is the least of Campbell's worries.

The new Raiders quarterback is also nursing a sore right (passing) wrist, which was hurt the series before Campbell was knocked out of Saturday night's exhibition game against the 49ers. Presumably, it happened on a sack by Patrick Willis, who came up the middle untouched while flying by rookie center Jared Veldheer.

"After the X-rays, (the stinger) does not appear to be too serious," Raiders coach Tom Cable said late Sunday afternoon in a conference call with Bay Area writers.

"We just need to rehab it and make sure he is ready to go."
