Bruce Gradkowski is likely to miss the remainder of the season after an MRI revealed a third-degree separation of his right shoulder. The story was first reported by Steve Corkran of the San Jose Mercury News on Tuesday.

The Raiders have not yet commented on the report. A third-degree separation is considered to be a "complete" separation, in which all of the ligaments in the shoulder are torn -- the most serious version of the injury.

Gradkowski first injured the shoulder against Arizona in Week 3, and subsequently re-injured it twice, first against the Chargers on October 10, then for the final time last weekend in the Raiders' 33-17 loss to the Dolphins.

In six games this season, Gradkowski completed 83 of 157 passes for 1059 yards with five touchdowns.

Jason Campbell is the likely candidate to start at quarterback this weekend against the Chargers in San Diego.
