Jason Campbell was hadn't fully regained his senses when he realized he'd been replaced as the Raiders starting quarterback.
After surgery on his broken collarbone Monday, Jason Campbell found out watching television that the Raiders had sent a first-round pick and conditional second-round draft choice to Cincinnati for quarterback Carson Palmer.
"I was halfway still on pain medicine," Campbell said on 95.7 FM Friday. "It was kind of a moment of silence. My fiancee looked at me to see if I was gonna say something. There's different things that go through your mind but you don't want to fill your mind with those thoughts."
Campbell hopes to be back in six weeks but by then the starting job will probably belong to Palmer, who is signed through 2014.
Campbell said he spoke with coach Hue Jackson Friday.
"He was like, 'I still believe in you. We brought you here, and you've done everything we've asked you to do, you know, helped turn the franchise around. You're winning, you're playing good.'
"And he was like, 'Don't get frustrated and get caught up into the things that are being said as far as a political standpoint and what you're hearing from a day-to-day basis. Just focus on getting back healthy and move forward.'"
Moving forward will probably result in Campbell moving on to a new team next season. He will be a free agent.
