ALAMEDA (AP) ― Jason Campbell will make his third straight start at quarterback for the Oakland Raiders in place of the injured Bruce Gradkowski.

Coach Tom Cable said Friday that Gradkowski was making progress in his recovery from a separated right shoulder.

Cable also said there was a chance Gradkowski could be healthy enough to be the backup Sunday against Seattle.

In other injury news, punt returner and reserve receiver Nick Miller sprained his ankle at practice and was questionable for Sunday.

The Raiders are short-handed at receiver with Louis Murphy and Chaz Schilens sidelined with injuries.

Rookie Jacoby Ford will start in Murphy’s place. Johnnie Lee Higgins will return punts if Miller is unable to play.
