Bruce Gradkowski is still holding out hope that the MCL's in each of his knees will be healed enough that the journeyman quarterback-turned-Raider Nation folk hero can play in the finale on Jan. 3 at the Coliseum against Baltimore.
"I'm feeling better," Gradkowski said. "It's crazy how much better you can feel in a week. I feel a lot better. Not as good as I want right now. The doctors are kind of surprised how fast I'm moving along. I'm not where I need to be to play just yet, but I'm getting there. Just got to take it day by day."
