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.

After eating her food as kid, Lynch purchasing restaurant from 79-year-old

Marshawn Lynch first tasted Cassie Nickelson's food when he was nine years old while she catered out of her Oakland apartment.

"When he was 9-years-old, he came across the street to get a hamburger and French fries. 25-cent French fries and a 75-cent hamburger," Nickelson said to KTVU.

Lynch, 31, is now set to take over Nickelson's popular soul-food restaurant, Scend's Restaurant and Bar, in Emeryville. Nickelson, 79, will be retiring in August. 

"I'm comfortable with him and I like him," Nickelson said.

Lynch will not become the official owner until the liquor license changes hands. Scend's, an acronym for Nickelson's children and grandchildren, is known for its seafood, fried chicken and red beans.
