Oakland Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell might not be concerned about being benched this weekend against the Dolphins because he already knows he won’t be starting.
Bruce Gradkowski took most if not all of the first-team reps this week, typically a sign that the quarterback who took the reps will be starting the game.
Campbell isn’t named on the injury report, so it’s not as if Gradkowski got the snaps because Campbell isn’t healthy.
That said, the Raiders have said nothing about a switch to Gradkowski. On Friday, coach Tom Cable addressed the situation from the perspective of Campbell getting the start and then being yanked for Gradkowski.
"We talk about a lot of things all the time [and] he is OK with where we’re going and what we’re doing," Cable said of Campbell. "He understands it’s the job. It comes with it."
Both Campbell and Gradkowski are weak fantasy plays given that Miami allows fewer than 200 passing yards per game.
