CSNCalifornia.comRaiders quarterback Jason Campbell was still woozy after Saturday's exhibition loss to the 49ers in which he was knocked out of the game after taking an Ahmad Brooks knee to the helmet.He compared the symptoms he was experiencing to the only other concussion he's had in his career -- it was a "minor" concussion, he said -- and said he had to take a concussion test.RELATED: Day-after Q&A with Raiders coach Hue Jackson
Early Sunday evening, coach Hue Jackson said he thought Campbell would practice Monday in Napa."Jason, obviously, has to follow some protocol," Jackson said on a conference call with Bay Area beat writers.Asked how relieved he was that the injury was not worse, Jackson exhaled."Oh, it's a huge relief," he said. "Anytime a guy goes out and needs to be checked, you want to make sure that the next day that everything is going to be O.K. He's going to be well."RELATED: Raiders notes: TE Boss injures left knee
The prognosis was not so bright for tight end Kevin Boss, though, who suffered a sprained left knee on a tackle by Tarell Brown on his lone catch, a 14-yard pickup late in the second quarter on a pass from Trent Edwards."He'll probably wind up being week-to-week as we go forward," Jackson said.
