A lingering injury to Oakland Raiders quarterback Bruce Gradkowski has breathed new life into the future of Colt Brennan.
The former Hawaii quarterback had been written off by many, including myself, when Gradkowski returned to limited practice recently. However, the former JaMarcus Russell backup is yet to return to game form and will be held out Saturday against the Chicago Bears.
Raiders coach Tom Cable stated that Brennan would likely get some snaps in the game, unlike in Dallas.
What snaps the former Washington Redskins quarterback gets will be critical.
Vittorio Tafur of the San Francisco Chronicle speculates that Gradkowski has to be worried about his job a little bit at this point.
The Raiders would save $1.4 million by releasing the quarterback.
