Injury Updates: Schilens, Bush & Campbell

Chaz Schilens will miss 3-6 weeks after undergoing surgery on his knee. He is more than likely out for the opener and likely will also miss the first few weeks of the season. His injury history is now pages long and he can’t stay healthy enough to stay on the field for more than a few games at a time.

Michael Bush will have a procedure on his left thumb. Tom Cable said he will not wear a cast, but will wear protection on the thumb. This is good news as it may have already been determined that he can play through the injury or wouldn’t miss significant time.

Michael Bennett may have secured his spot on the roster with the injury to Bush and the injury history of Darren McFadden.

Jason Campbell is likely good for the season opener. The more severe injury sustained in Saturday nights game was not the stinger but the right wrist injury from the drive before. This likely isn’t an issue, he came back into the game after the injury. The Raiders will be cautious, but I don’t expect this to be anything going forward.

Jared Veldheer will practice at tackle and center this week and it will be determined soon which position will be his permanent position. This is a tough decision to make, with the poor play of Mario Henderson and the injury and sub par play of Samson Satele.
