Chiefs vs. Raiders: Will It Be Jason Campbell Or Bruce Gradkowski?

The Oakland Raiders have yet to declare their starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs in the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum. It's down to Jason Campbell and Bruce Gradkowski at the moment. Head coach Tom Cable has already indicated that Gradkowski, who is injured, is the starting quarterback when healthy.

But is he healthy?

"He did good and he's moving forward rapidly now," said Cable, according to the (other) AP. "The question will be kind of what we talked about a few weeks ago, if he can do everything that's necessary to go out and play."

Gradkowski has been limited in practice but is splitting first team reps with Campbell. It appears that once again the Chiefs will have to wait until late in the week to find out who the starting quarterback will be.

Todd Haley talked about both players on Wednesday and suggested there was a "tempo change" when Gradkowski, "little quicker athlete", is in the game. But Haley does note Campbell's big arm.

Whoever makes the most mistakes would be my pick from a Chiefs perspective. I don't see the Raiders being able to overcome turnovers in this game. Gradkowski has four picks in 102 attempts and Campbell has four picks in 138 attempts so they're both turnover prone to some extent.

Matt Cassel, by the way, hasn't thrown an interception in over 119 pass attempts.
