OAKLAND -- Raiders quarterback Jason Campbell has a broken collarbone and is out indefinitely, head coach Hue Jackson announced after his team's win over the Browns.
Jason has a fractured clavicle," Jackson said. "Thats what Jason has. Im not going to let this football team blink. Well miss Jason for a little while. I have no idea how long it will take. I dont know. Well see as we go. I know obviously he wont be here next week or anything like that. Well continue to press forward and get better.

Campbell was injured with 3:45 left in the second quarter when he scrambled up the middle for a seven-yard gain. As Campbell dived forward, the football appeared to get between his right collarbone and the ground as Cleveland linebacker Scott Fujita rolled over him.

Earlier, Campbell scrambled upfield and lost a fumble without being touched.

Campbell was replaced by Kyle Boller, who struggled initially.

Punter Shane Lechler was the team's third quarterback as rookie Terrelle Pryor was not active. Oakland received a roster exemption for Pryor this week as his five-game suspension to begin the season ended this week.
